Love Is Like a Butterfly

One should never make cards when exhausted.  I don't care to admit how much cardstock I mangled cutting seven, yes seven, ovals in my attempt to make this card.  That said, I have made it through report cards, Christmas concerts, hosting family dinner for eleven after working all day, kiddie birthday parties and Christmas preparations.  I am rocking if mangling cardstock is the only problem I'm having.

This week's challenge on Sketch with a Twist is to make a Thinking of You card and I was really enjoying the break from Christmas cards.  I used my new "Lots of Words" set from Mark's Finest Papers for both the image and the sentiment.  I really like the size and shape of the butterfly.  I lucked out and the three Copics I bought today perfectly matched the background paper that has been sitting in my stash because I wasn't able to match anything with it.  Serendipity!

I do hope you'll take time to join us this week!

  1. Beautiful butterfly card, Christine. Great choice of colors.

  2. Another beautiful card! I love the colors you chose for the butterfly! Thanks so much for sharing your talents with us at Loves Rubber Stamps Challenges and look forward to seeing more of your lovely creations again soon. Have a beautiful week! Laura

  3. Oh, I hear you with the mangled card stock. Non-stampers have no idea the trauma we encounter in our craft, and why cards don't cost $1.00. I'm glad you stuck with it, because it turned out great! Thanks for joining us at Shopping our stash!

    PS: Do I NEED to add another challenge to my list of things I won't get to? Sigh.

  4. Such a lovely job. Thanks for joining us at Loves Rubberstamps.

  5. Ohhhh this is so pretty!!! Your colouring on the butterfly is awesome!

  6. Beautiful card! Thanks for joining us at Crafty Creations for our "Anything Goes" challenge. I hope you had an opportunity to hop over to the other blogs for a chance to win prizes there too. Happy New Year and we are looking forward to seeing you in 2014.
