Free

This is my last post for tonight. It's getting really late and I should be in bed. We spent the evening at our DD/SIL's. Had a great time! Bug is loving 4th grade and the twins are soooo excited about Kindergarden. The 4th one I think is kinda enjoying having Mom to himself even though she is working (works from home)We saw papers, shapes, cuts, colorings, drawings and their names printed in their little shaky hand writing. It was all just awesome!!! Okay, enough of my chatter. Over at http://cricutcardzchallenge.blogspot.com/ challenge #38 is Anything Goes!!! Make a card using any cart, colors and theme you like. Then over at http://craftycreationschallenges.blogspot.com/ challenge #81 is Butterflies on your card or project. I made this 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 card using a Butterfly from Tinker Bell and Friends cart. The lettering is from Gypsy Font with the letters welded together. Even with the cuts being 4 1/2 inches they were a pill to put together. Took me a little while but I am really happy with how she turned out. I used some Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist on her to give her some shimmer. The blue bg and patterned cardstocks are from the Mariposa stacks. Such beautiful stacks. I love them!! You have until Tues. 8/24 to enter these challenges. Hope ya'll like my card!!! :)
