More Butterflies…..




I played some more with my S.E.I. papers. Here I used the punch out die cuts that came in the pack….added some pearls and used the frosted card blank from Sheetload Shortcuts . I really love the effect the frosted card gives.  This cards was soooo simple and quick..when I finally decided what I wanted to do.

Supplies: Shortcuts frosted acetate card blank, S.E.I. paper pack die cuts, pearls (unknown)  from Hobby Lobby. Sentiment stamp CTMH, Chocolate ink CTMH.

Well we had an ugly storm here last evening…temp dropped from 98-100 to 72 in a matter of minutes. It was like someone put out the sun it got so dark. Very high winds, but fortunately no tornados here in Des Moines.

I went out and got my younger 2 kiddos desks and chairs for their bedrooms, and they have been up there for ages playing and writing each other notes!! Too funny. With all of them at home this school year I felt it was necessary that I could send them to their rooms for some quiet work time if needed. I am sure the novelty will wear off soon.

I hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday!

Beautiful card! Those butterflies are gorgeous, and I, too, love the frosted cardstock. We haven't had a storm yet, which is OK with me. Big winds always kind of scare me. Fun hearing about your kids. Desks in their rooms is a great idea.

Your sparkly butterflies with the pearls --and on the frosted paper-- are stunning! And I like the inside of the card too. Very pretty.

Glad your kiddos are playing happily together...sure helps to make the days a LOT more enjoyable! ;)
