I simply don't have the time to go back through years of posts in order to fix the orientation of the pictures.

Butterfly Meets Bella Rose


This card I made when I got to visit with my dear friend LaRee in Wichita Falls.  Yes, I'm a crazy stamper. I took a box of stamping stuff with me so that she and I could have a little fun.  We only got one card done, but it was nice and of course getting to spend time with her was the best part!

I didn't have my Stamp-a-Ma-Jig and almost had heart failure when I realized I didn't.  I had this card idea in my head and knew I needed the butterflies to be straight.  Well, I "eye-balled" it as best I could and I hope it looks okay!!!  I not only took a picture of the front of the card, but also the INSIDE that I did a little "decorating" in.  I think it's fun to open a card and find that the inside is pretty too :)

I would love to hear what you think - but this is a "scheduled" post so I apologize that I won't be replying back to your sweet comments.  This will be my last post until I get back from SU! Convention. This is a "scheduled" post too - so still no responses back from me on your comments, but I DO appreciate them!!! Remember to use the little "subscribe" widget in my sidebar so that you don't have to check in each day and you will get an e-mail when I post something new. I love that feature!! I hope to have TONS of stuff to share with you from Convention, and for my Go. Be Creative. DT work. Take care, and until then!!!
