Wee Memories Scappy Saturday Challenge 17

Hello everyone!  Saturday the best day of the week, is here again and it's time for another Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge!  By the way Wee Memories is on facebook now!  You can "like" us using the button in the Wee Memories sidebar, or go to the page here.

And other exciting news is that we have a guest designer for the month of August, Courtney Lee make sure to check her wonderful blog out!

I am quite excited about this weeks challenge, it's my favorite, butterflies!  I love butterflies and find myself owning A LOT of butterfly stamps, dies, etc and even more on my wish list!

We have a great sponsor this week, The Gilded Bee  she has some gorgeous paper stuff, make sure to check her out!  I very much enjoyed looking through her store, I love the butterflies and her flowers and she has the cutest tags!  And the lucky winner will receive some of her butterflies! 

Here is my card:


I have had this card idea in my head for a little while.  I inked only a part of the Hero Arts cling dots and stamped it.  I thought it would be different to stitch the hello and stamped it on a post it note and than pierced it and than hand sewed it.  It was not as easy as I thought it was!  I stamped and colored the butterflies from Antique Engravings set by HA with my prisma and derwent pencils!


The deadline for entries Thursday, 12 August 2010 at 11.59pm PST. I would love for you to play along with us!  I can't wait to see what you create!  For more inspiration click here to see the lovely creations from the design team members. 
I wanted to say a special thank you to all of you who left me such sweet comments on my anniversary!  I loved sharing my photos and story with you!  Your comments made me feel so happy, and brought tears to my eyes.  I am so blessed by you.  We had a great day together, it was nice to be able to spend time alone and celebrate 8 years!  The kids had a great night at my inlaws, which is wonderful as it was Carter's first night away!  

The rest of this week has been pretty good.  We went to a few more splash and wading pools. And I worked 3 evenings!  They are short staffed at the children's clothing store and had a crazy sale so I went in.  It's okay as Chad was home with the kids and I am enjoying making my own money for my upcoming trip to Scrapfest in September in Minneapolis!  I want to be able to shop shop shop!  This weekend we have a birthday party to attend as a family and in the works is a girl night!  I hope you have an amazing weekend!
