***Please note that after switching from several different hosts before settling on Blogger, the formatting of my pictures may not be as it was originally intended. I simply don't have the time to go back through years of posts in order to fix the orientation of the pictures. Sometimes a picture just shows a box of text in its place, but clicking on it will allow you to see the picture. Others, there may be no picture at all. I apologize.***

Flutter By Butterfly
This card is one I made for SU!'s July contest. The category was that of the title of this post, and it was for projects featuring....butterflies. :) I figured it was okay to go ahead and post it because the entries had to be received by SU! by today. I thought I would show a little close-up of my little butterfly and her paper-pierced path. You can click on it to see it full-size, thanks to my friend Melissa for sending me a link to a tutorial on how to do that in WordPress!!! :)
I just LOVE Kind and Caring Thoughts, and can't get enough of it!!! I like the sentiments, the images - all of them! I also LOVE putting brads through the circle flower "embossed" buttons in the Designer Buttons assortments. I first did it on THIS card I made for Lydia. It's a "brad-in-a-button"!!! I hadn't seen anyone else do it yet, and I made that card back in March.
What do you think?
On a side note - I'm sorry for the lack in posting, but my little boy had some minor surgery done today. Two separate issues were taken care of, and without a husband (he's deployed for the Air Force for a couple of more months and has been gone since April) I've just been trying to keep afloat lately and stamping has been on the back-burner. I have some Stamps in the Mail cards to share with you, and will try to get them posted soon.
