Butterfly Trio

Hi friends.
Please scroll down to also see my post from earlier today.  I go from not blogging to two posts in one day.  Crazy!

I like the muted colors and inked papers on this card.  It's very "me".  The butterflies are made with the   Martha Stewart Stamp and Punch Set.  The set comes with 3 or 4 stamps that store in the punch itself.  You use the storage lid as the "stamp back".  You punch the stamped images out with the matching punch.  My sister gave me this set and I love it.  The background paper has been embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I love this verse stamp, but sadly don't know what company it's from seeing I got it used and it's an unmounted stamp.

  • New books
  • Hubby went to 3 different stores looking for carob, so that he could surprise me with some brownies for Mother's Day.  (I can't eat chocolate.)  He's so thoughtful and loving.  The brownies are decadently delicious. :)
  • My daughter found some beautiful, large pieces of coral at a garage sale for me.  Perfect for our living room redecoration.
Have a fabulous week!!!

Inky hugs!
Shelly

OOoooo...I LOVE that Cuttlebug embossing folder you used. I've never seen that one before, and I really like it. It looks like bricks. So cute! Thanks for sharing a second entry with us at Word Art Wednesday. I cannot express how much it means to me when you share your art and link up with us, and I really hope you will continue to play along each week.
