Flutter By Butterfly


DSCN7448This 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.
