Spring is in the Air and so are the Butterflies

Well Hello Everyone,

Lots a of news for you today over at Through the Craftroom Door.

As of today April 1st the magazine has a new owner. Many of you may already know this wonderful lady. Due to other ventures and commitments Suzanne and Marti decided that they would no longer be able to keep the magazine going as they have wished to when it began. However they still wanted to see their work that they had put into the magazine continue. So as of today the new owner of Through the Craftroom Door is none other than The Outlawz owner Colleen Holmes. I have the great privilege to not only be on this design team but as many of you may already know I am on The Outlawz design team as well. I have the pleasure of knowing and working with Colleen already. I can tell you that you are going to be in for a real treat in the coming months with this magazine. Please stay tuned at the magazine's blog as well and The Outlawz.

OK, let's go ahead and tell you about the challenge for the 1st day of April. Our challenge is sponsored by my friend and artist anaRy the artist behind Gilli Stamps. She will be giving a way a Gilli Goodie bag to the winner of this challenge.

So what is the challenge? The challenge is to create a spring project but it must include a butterfly. Not to hard. Does it have to be a card no. You can make a box, card, or wreath as long as it is spring and has a butterfly or two or three on it.

My card is a mini 3 x 3 card. I am using lil Gilli Classy. She has her new spring outfit on.

I have colored most of her with my Copics. I did paper piece her skirt and the collar of her jacket with like color.

The butterflies are punch from a Martha Stewart Punch.
Of course I couldn't help myself I had to add a little bakers twine.

I know my post was a bit long but I wanted to share the wonderful news about our new owner Colleen. I hope you will join us for our challenge and stop by and welcome Colleen as our new owner.
