Merry Christmas everyone!! Yes, I'm strange... I post a butterfly card right before the holidays! Ha... I just don't have a holiday card to share quite yet. Or is it that we're in for a major winter snowstorm and I'm thinking spring! 16(+)" expected in this area. We were going to leave for my folks to celebrate on Christmas Eve, but we have to push that off till Saturday. Southern, MN is expected to have much more... so Mark and I will have a quiet Christmas! This will be different for both of us as we always travel.
My butterfly card was inspired from a Paper Crafts Magazine. I REALLY like how it turned out!! :) Do you remember this SU! Stipple Butterfly stamp from years back? I made two cards... Diane and Lisa (The Craft's Meow) for there birthdays! Check out Lisa's blog for some fantastic inspiration!! I used my brayer on Glossy Card Stock to create the background behind the butterfly... using a post-it I punched a circle to mask off an area to create the sun.
The Butterfly is embossed in black and using my blender pen and ink pads I started coloring in the areas. I used a couple shades of SU! markers directly to the image also. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
Now, Cooper would like to say "MERRY CHRISTMAS"!! He feels left out on my blogging experiences and wanted to pose for this photo and give some Christmas cheer to you all!!
Here's my baby... :)
Have a safe, warm, and enjoyable Christmas!! I'll be spending some "long-over-due-time" catching up on your wonderful posts and creative cards... :) Thanks for popping in for a visit!
SMILES and Merry Christmas!
