I am married to lovely man that just smiles at my stamping addiction, two great kids that I just could not imagine having as a part of my life....not that they are perfect...smile!!!!! I do have a furry little girl too that is just to sweet for words. Now you know a little about me I hope you enjoyed your visit and come back anytime. Happy Stamping!!!!!

Flight of a Butterfly

Well, well Happy Saturday to you all!!!!!!!!!!

This week just seem to fly by and I was able to make a couple new cards for you all but the last couple of days I have been feeling a little under the weather and todays the first day my throat is not hurting BUT to my hubby's great joy I have lost my voice, I sound like one of the mice from Cinderella...smile

However we have an intimate surprise party to go to this afternoon and my husband and I wanted to give this young lady a gift. She is going to be going to Honduras to do some missionary like work and will be gone for a couple months, and I needed something to put it in so here is my version of a flight of the butterfly and no it does not even use any of the stamp set.

One of my old favorites is the Thought and Prayers ( and yes it is still double mounted...aghhhh) I have not used it for some time only because I had used it so much I was afraid some of my customers would think I owned no other stamp sets.....giggle.

So here are the ingredients...yes I have recipes on the brain as I just finished a triple chocolate decadent cake to take to the hostesses house as a contribution to the buffet.

STAMPS: Thought and Prayers, En Francias
INKS: Concord Crush, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzaz
PAPER: Same as inks as well as the DSP that has these colours in that I cannot remember, Vellum cardstock, and Vanilla
ACCESSORIES: Eyelet Border punch, Lots of Butterflies die, pearls all different sizes

So I hope that you all have some wonderful plans for the weekend and that you enjoyed the card I showed you today
Happy Stamping
