June Leading Lady Michele Ferguson | Take One

Michele_june2016

It's an exciting day as we can introduce our June Leading Lady!

I am so happy to bring you Michele Ferguson!  Michele is a true sweetheart and incredibly talented with a clean, beautifully elegant aesthetic (I am a fellow huge fan of embossing folders). In fact she was our very first Gossip Queen and her winning card can be found HERE.  We also spotlighted her work HERE and HERE.  She's been on my list for future Leading Ladies for a while now and am delighted she is this month's Leading Lady.

Over the next few Saturdays in Michele will be leading us on a journey of her own design and imagining.  Make sure to visit her blog, I Card Everyone, to see more from her and for a chance to win a giveaway! 

Please give Michele a big round of applause to welcome her as she steps onto the stage for her first performance as our June Leading Lady!    


Hi Winnie & Walter fans!  I'm thrilled beyond words to be playing cards with my newest W&W products - to be called their 'leading lady' is [oh my word!] such an honor!

I wanted to make a few 'frame-able' cards of the garden variety today, water-colored using my favorite heat embossed 'canvas!'   I'll be spot-lighting In Bloom: Anna's Flora, and a few supporting W&W products.

When I showed my husband, Tom, my cards for this first week he said "wow...  they seem much more colorful than you usually make!"  I think that was a compliment =]  I'll let you be the judge!

Who could have a garden without planting a little something for our birds?  This gorgeous sunflower would do the trick:

Another little slip of vellum for the gold embossed sentiment.
Distress inks again for the coloring.

As much fun as it was to add lots of color, I had to be true to my CAS style for my last card!  My take on a favorite little ditty:  he loves me, he loves me not! using the darling little individual petals that are included in the set... Shay, you think of everything! {Editor's note: it was all Julie and not Shay :-) }

michele_LLWW love you

and always the perfect words from:

Frame it you ask?  Here is how I've added a little beribboned clip to a shadow-box frame for my oldest granddaughter, Anna  [appropriate, I think] who is redecorating her room.  Seems gray is one of her favorite colors - I wonder where she gets that?!

I do hope that I've inspired you all to get out your own wonderful Winnie & Walter supplies to make a little frame-able card!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  A million and one thanks to Shay for having me!  See you next week!
