It's Flutter By Day

This card is made for the Wednesday Flutter By Challenge at Danni's Dreams. Today's card was supposed to have orange and yellow on it. My butterflies are painted with Twinkling H2O's. I don't know who makes the butterfly stamp. The sentiment stamp is made by Heart and Soul Rubber stamps. Sue at Heart and Soul Rubber Stamps also has some lovely butterfly stamps. They are on my "to purchase" list next time I have some mad money. : ) The yellow butterfly on my card is 3-D. I added a second picture below that shows the dimension a little better. A long while back I saw a card like this made by Chris Smith and I've wanted to make one ever since. I'm sorry I don't recall where I saw it to add a link.

Most of you are probably already aware of this, but LuminArte, the company that makes Twinkling H2O's, is going out of business. It's so sad to see another great stamping related company closing. They having a 40% off going out of business sale if you want to stock up on their products while you still can.

Did you know that they make orthopedic nose pads for glasses? I didn't until I ended up with some. The other day while I was waiting for the eye doctor I asked the optician to put some soft nose pads on my glasses. They felt fine and I didn't look in the mirror until I got home. They are the longest, thickest, most ugly nose pads I've ever seen and I've been wearing glasses for about 33 years. These babies are practically bigger than my glasses. lol And of course I've had to go several places since then and I haven't had a chance to get the nose pads replaced yet. But I must say they are the most comfortable nose pads I've ever worn. Why is it that comfort and ugly often go together? It's usually that way with shoes. : )

  • Mark found some unused pads of Little Sizzles paper at a garage sale for $0.25 each. It's not the latest design, but it fits my needs and budget.
  • The beautiful birds in my yard. I enjoy them so much.
  • An adult daughter who is also my friend. We have alot of fun together. : )
Have a marvelous day!!!!
Inky hugs!
