I have missed a few weeks of the Blogger's challenge due to convention and then catch up from convention. I really wanted to play today! It is the Friday before school starts, so...you can imagine all the craziness going on at my house full of kids! Lucky for me, I am too broke to buy back to school clothes so it has just been the kids, frantically squeezing in one more day of freedom ( and all that entails) that has me running around.
I did manage to fit some stampin/crafting time in today. I mostly played with my new Big Shot. I love it!! I don't have any awesome samples to show you yet. Just a whole lot of mess on my two craft tables. My daughter and her friend decided they needed to make cards in the middle of my crafting, so that slowed me down a bit. I love it when my kids take an interest in what I do. I feel it justifies me a bit, you know?
Anyway, I did need a birthday card for a dear friend, so I made this sweet butterfly card for her. I LOVE this new set! While I was at convention, I was making my wish list and this set was on it. Wasn't I surprised to see it in my bag of freebies! LOL Glad I looked before I ordered! It is a really easy set to line up. The colors I used are two of our new In Colors this year, Baja Breeze and Pacific point. They go great together! The skinny ribbon is basic WalMart ribbon. I am out of my beautiful Stampin' Up! Tafetta! I tell ya, those convention swaps hit my supplies pretty hard! Time to restock! I don't know if you can tell, but each little polka dot on the wings is dotted with 2-way glue and smothered with dazzling diamonds glitter. The scalloped edge is my scallop border punch. Love it!
Have a great weekend and be sure to check out the other blogger challenge players!
