Butterfly Love

I have so much to do and just not enough arms or hands. I thought I would be able to create today but my hip and knee were giving me fits, so I spent the day on a heating pad. I guess I overdid it at the gym again.I did get to watch a slew of sports tho-basketball, hockey, golf and baseball.All from the comfort? of my sofa.

This is the last card I have in my queue, so I may just take a few weeks off to finish my taxes (I am still waiting on donation receipts), sort thru crap to give to a local school's rummage sale and I have to assess what I will hope to do verses what I can do on my house. I really need a long vacation (by myself) to just have no obligations.That will never happen (unless Johnny Depp shows up at my door).

Here is another card from the Penny Black sticker sheet. So simple but pretty elegant. Start with a plain white card-a folded square (and not my favorite type). Taking a scrap of pink texture, secure a tiny eyelet in each corner. Tape run it to the front of the base card.

A small piece of Bling black has the corners rounded and this too was attached to the front of the pink. I centered the frame sticker on the black. Then I tipped the butterfly sticker and placed it inside the frame. For some extra shimmer, I used Stickles on the wings (I think this is called Ice Stickles). This is the last of the Penny Black cards made from one sheet of stickers. I have more in my stash, so there will be examples coming again.

I hope to be back sooner than later. And maybe with some recipes for my other blog. It was pretty exciting to come in second with my soup recipe in a recent contest, so I am experimenting again. There will be a post here on this blog when the photos/recipes are up. Enjoy spring if you have it! Ciao!
