yet another butterfly....

This week has just flowen by!  Friday already, the weekend is here!  The weather here has been warmer so I have been bundling my kids up to go and play outside!  My son can't seem to walk in his boots on the snow and icy covered ground so it was quite funny to watch him try!  My daughter just loved it of course!  I have also been taking them sledding, there is a lake down my street and the hill down the lake is a good sled run!  I didn't know how my daughter would take it as last year we took her tobbaganning at the hill beside my parents and she was a bit frightened, but maybe my screams didn't help much either!  :>  This time she did enjoy it, maybe because the hill is not as big, maybe because she was by herself so it wasn't as fast, but mostly probably because I wasn't sitting in it also all scared!  I am so happy that we can go sledding so close to home, someone even made a rink on the ice.  Next up skating I guess!

I am back today with another butterfly card.  I can't help it I had another good idea!  And this card is again using the Rasberry Suite challenge 21 colors, the challenge is over but all my papers were out and I really liked the colors so I figured I would use them again! I actually am new to using cream in my cards! Here is my card:





I really liked the butterfly tail sentiment so I did it again.  This time I stamped all the butterflies and the card with the HA Cling Dots background stamp with versamark and than clear embossed it. (it doesn't show so well in the photo on the brown but it looks really good in person!) I really like how it turned out!  I layered the nestie a bit differently also on the card, it may not be easy to fit into an envelope but I like it to so much I don't care!  I also embossed the cream nestie with my dots cuttlebug folder!  I really like dots and I am really enjoying all the dots on this card!

Well I better run and clean up my father is coming over in a bit.  The other night after midnight my son was crying so I went to his room, I ended up slipping and falling on the linoleum floor!  On my way down my arm collided with the baby gate and I broke one of the wooden pegs!  It hurt a bit but no bruises nothing to me no worries, I couldn't believe that I had broken the gate though!  Thankfully my dad is coming over to fix it!
