butterflies and mothers

Happy Weekend!  Hope your having a wonderful weekend! We sure are!  Spent friday night with some friends, loved seeing Ariel play with one of her girl friends seeing her play dressup and all that!  It's been a bit since we've hung out one on one with these friends and we had such a great time!  Today the weather was so hot!  It was quite welcome as we had nice weather all week but it was way too windy to go outside!  Took the kids to the park and they played a lot more outside!
I love this card!  I was inspired by Vanessa Menhorn, love her blog!  She recently was published on papercrafts current issue on the frount cover!  She is so talented, and generous, I recently won her blog candy!  Well I think this card was inspired by her as when I made this the issue wasn't for sale yet I was going on a small picture!  I loved the layour of her butterfiles!  The card:

butterflies and mothers, originally uploaded by AnitaRex.

Now that it's nice outside and sunny it's fun to take a pic in the sun, I think it shows the colors so well!

I based my colors on this stripey pp by kauser.  I love stripey pp, I think it's so easy for cardmaking when your stamping!  I stamped the background only where the butterflies are with cling dots by HA in white!  And I love the way I stamped the Happy Mother's Day going up the side!  I colored the butterflies with a sponge and my inks!

products used:  Ha Flutterbies digi, HA Cling Dots, PTI stamp, kauser pp, SU Kraft, Distress and other various inks, SU scalloped punch, corner rounder.

Looking through my pictures I realize that I have a lot of cards that I have made and haven't blogged about!  Will have to get on that!

Hope you have a wonderful rest of your weekend!
