How true is that!  This little butterfly has inhabited my stash for some time and I’ll apologize ahead of time that I don’t know which company offers this unmounted.  Please, please if you know – email me so that I can give them proper credit.   He-he I have quite a few stamps from this company, that I picked up at a Stamp Convention several years ago and I know the name is written somewhere in my studio….I’ll keep trying to find it too.

This design is likely to have either a flower or a strip of design paper added somewhere, perhaps, before sending it out.  I really tried to load it up and my Cuttlebug was hungry for the background, but I resisted.   The butterfly was colored with Copics on Fabriano Watercolor paper…. no, I didn’t plan that in advance, but it ended up being very interesting how the paper took the color and how it moved around on the paper. 

The wings are embellished with a Sakura Gelly Roll glitter pen and it sparkles in real life, but tricky to catch with the camera.  Lastly, the piercing pattern is an Ornare template – tons of fun and simple to do.   Have a blessed day.

Paper:  Bazzill, Fabriano Acquarello

    Oh this is beautiful! I do hope you can find the name of that company, they will certainly get a run of orders from this card!!!ReplyCancel

:34 My goodness, I’ve been sick.

For the life of me I don’t know what it was, but I couldn’t get up off of the couch for about 48 hours.   My husband thought he could cheer me up by taking me to Hobby Lobby and even going inside with me.  I found a good place to just perch but refused to spend money.  He was beside himself because he knew something was terribly wrong.   Well I’m all good now, and I think we will have to rerun that HL visit. :13

I’m back with a new card, and it looks very similar to something I did recently.  It just so happens that when I did the first dress card, this is the test scrap I played around with before I did the "real" card (do you all do that too?)  Then I was in Walmart recently and saw a card that had a similar sentiment – it had me rolling in the aisle.  So I nabbed it for this card, admittedly cased, but only for personal use.  The added bonus is I can submit it for Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge 170.

The above picture is the inside of the card.  

Hmmmmm, it kinda starts out sounding wicked, but once you flip to the inside, it’s alllllll goooood.  Yep, a snarky card you can only send to your best bud girlfriends.  Thanks for stopping by, I missed posting and hope to be back at it this week.

    Becca, glad you are on the road to recovery. I love this card and there is so much truth to it. LOL!!! But definitely one you could only share with your best buds. Thanks for sharing. :-)ReplyCancel


I was so ready for a cutesy card!  I hunted through my unmounteds and found these three little adorable insects.  I colored each up with my Copics and then found my stash of American Crafts Ribbon which made picking the accent colors easy!   

Have a great day and don’t let anybody fool ya!
