Creatalicious Challenge #100 - BLOG HOP!

Hi my friends. Gosh it's been a long time since my last post. I really need to get crackin' and get more done. It has been a bit crazy at my house.  The caterpillar population has exploded once again and I've got them all over the place. I even grew 2 of them in a butterfly cage in my house. One just hatched out of its chrysalis today and I'll be putting it outside in the morning to hopefully fly away and find its mate. I think I'm about done for the season after these 50+ have all made their chrysalis and on to the next stage.

Well, to get at the business at hand. It is time to celebrate as this is our 100th challenge @ Creatalicious.

The dp is from SU Birthday Bouquet collection. I also used the SU Pool Party blue ribbon.  I used SU Bayou Breeze cardstock for the base and mat. The doily is from Recollections Color Splash and the die is Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles.

Monthly Challenge - Creative Card Chicks - June

Yes, I am well behind in getting my cards posted on my blog. Lots of things have been getting in the way which I won't go into now. I will say that my latest project is raising a monarch caterpillar in my home and not in my hutch. All the ones in my hutch have made their chrysalis, so I'm waiting for them to hatch. I hadn't seen anymore in my garden all week until I found this one kind of big one all by itself. I don't think it will take too long for it to grow enough to make it's chrysalis too. I have a butterfly cage, so decided to try raising it indoors. This is only the 2nd day, so we'll see how hit goes. It does have a healthy appetite which means I have to keep cutting the tops of plants off to make little plants stuck in the top of a plastic food container for it to climb on and feed.  I'll let you know how that turns out.

For now I'm going to get eto the card kit that the Creative Card Chicks on SCS received in June from littledeb. Let me say that I lover Gerbera daisies so I was thrilled to receive this kit from Deb.
I'm not used to coloring on kraft paper, but I love how this one turned out.  Sorry I don't know what I did with the instructions that she sent that said what everything was and where it came from.

I did use my Copic markers to color. B0000; E23, E25; G43; Y35, Y38; YG06.  I also used some Chrystal Effects on the jar and some white liquid pearls for the white spray. Deb made is so easy. I also didn't put a sentiment on it yet. I'll do that when I choose to send it to someone.
