Otters!!.

Good morning everyone! Oh Happy Days!!! It is Friday! Finally Friday!! LOL  Woot! Today I have some running around to do at work, which means I will leave around noon or so. Other than that I'll get my walking done in the morning (45 minutes) and then another 30 minutes at lunch time. We are not doing a whole lot this weekend. I'm taking my two girls and my mother to the Major League Lacrosse game that will be here in Kennesaw. It is the championship game! I'm really excited! Oh.. and they are announcing the expansion team that will be coming to Georgia today too. All kinds of Lacrosse excitement LOL That's it though.. other than that I'm just going to chill around the house and craft I hope! Have a wonderful Friday everyone!!

I LOVE otters! Here is my creation for today:









For this card, the image was colored with my copic markers. It was done so long ago I can't remember what I used. I cut the butterflies and the flowers. The flowers actually are two different types of flowers. The middle has a rolled rose in it. I added some stickles to the edge of the flowers and butterflies. There are pearls on the butterflies as well. The circle under the flowers was cut using the Cameo; it was a circle of leaves. I added two pieces of washi tape .. that is the blue banner cut tape. I also added some twine and the butterfly charm. On the image, I covered the cattails with clear glass balls which added some texture. I used clear UTEE at the bottom on the water to give it a shimmer and make it really look like water. There are even some "splashes" on the otter :)  To finish it off I added some sequins in blue shades. I also added the sequins to the inside to finish it off.
