Time With Wendy

It's Tuesday and time for "Time With....."!  Every Tuesday and Thursday,
one of the Bread Basket members will share a project with you here, and
then you can hop on over to their personal blog for more good stuff!

Today it's Time With Wendy Weixler. Wendy is our August Guest Designer.

Wendy says:

What an honor and privilege it has been for me to join the
girls in the Bread Basket as a Guest Designer for ODBD this month!!  I have enjoyed the camaraderie, challenges
and friendships I have gained while “playing” with such lovely stamps and such
wonderful people (these ladies truly have hearts as big as their talent)!!

Being the self-proclaimed “Butterfly Queen,” I couldn’t pass
on creating this card using the beautiful little butterfly image from the
newly-released “Happy Birthday” set. 
Using this lattice cutout as a backdrop, I had fun creating this
“butterfly garden.”  I really love doing
“hybrid” cards – cards where I can combine stamped images with diecut
images.  I love the dimensions we can
create when using these elements together.


In creating this second card (using another newly-released
set – “Jesus”), I was trying to invoke the image of Jesus as a carpenter
(hence, the “faux woodgrain” board that I used as a banner).  The flowers remind me of dogwood, and I love
how they offset the focal image.


 Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by!
