April in Florida

It feels like forever since I posted but we have been busy!  We closed on our condo in Florida and have been trying to furnish it before we leave to head home.   We are hopeful that by the time we get ready to head home the Virus will have abated somewhat.  We will have to quarantine for 14 days once we get home.  

In the meantime, I am finding time to make some cards and 3D items.  The butterflies above are a box card that can close to mail.  I got this file from Mary at SVG Cuts.  I love her designs!!

I am not sure how I will use the card but it will work for birthdays or anniversaries. I don't think the photo shows but I used Crystal effects on the wings and glitter glue on the body of the butterflies. 

I have kept the back blank since I can't decided yet how to use it.  Plenty of space to write a sentiment.  I also played with the Watering Can svg file from Dreaming Tree.  You can see the result in the picture below.  I used Graphic 45 paper - love this in blue!  I need to practice more on making their flowers but I love how it came out!! I put the handle on the inside of my watering can- I know most would put it on the outside but I prefer it inside. 

We did have a visitor the other morning just outside of our front door.  Can you see her ?  The neighbors have named her Mildred.  Now, I don't like snakes- neither does my husband.   She was in the top of this bush!!! This bush is right up close to our condo....eeeekkkk...
We are going to have this bush trimmed quite a bit.... so maybe Mildred won't find it so much fun to sit in it.   It's not the first time we have seen Mildred.  She likes to lay on the side walk ...again, right in front of our condo!  I think we will have to get used to seeing Mildred.  They tell me she eats mosquitoes and such but still...I don't like snakes...!!!

Everyone stay healthy!!
