Happy Everything!

Happy Monday! I had such a busy weekend........again that my crafting time was pretty minimal! Our house is finally taking shape and we are doing the fun stuff like hanging pictures and such. We purchased a bed frame and headboard for Kyle since he will no longer be sleeping in a bunk bed. We also looked at new carpeting and took a few samples home. I think we've decided on a color and can't wait to have it installed!

So with that said, I am posting a card I made awhile ago for a challenge hosted by yours truly during our Sizzlin' Summer Crop. The challenge was to use punches and scraps of paper you hate to part with. I used Noel's Penny Arcade kit and my SU! square punch. The edges were inked up with Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap ink. The butterfly was created with my Spellbinders. I added some stick pins for his antennae and a lil' flower for his body. The frame and rub on are by Melissa Frances.


I am off to work! Have a great day everyone!!! : )

This is so beautiful! The papers are so pretty and I love how you inked up the edges. I've yet to work with Tim Holtz inks. The squares look like little tiles. Just fabulous!
