Butterfly Challenge #35

I made a card and had no challenge to enter it in:(   What to do?  I went out and found a challenge blog, of course! 🙂  It’s actually called the Butterfly Challenge and I’m going to enter my card into challenge #35! 🙂  I love butterflies, this should be fun! 🙂  Apparently they are working on a Letter challenge.  This week it’s a butterfly with the letter “T” and that stands for “Tallisman”.  I understand it to mean a charm. Here’s the card I made:

abSDC17007You can see my little charm upper, left corner.  It’s a little flower, my granddaughter approved my choice;)  My card is made with a new digital image by Fred She Said called, Doodled Flower Trio Cardfront.  I don’t know why she uses such long names, but they sure are gorgeous! 🙂  The set comes with lots of different color combos!  There is a SALE going on over at the Fred She Said store, but only until the 20th, so pop over there right away! 🙂

I used one of my favorite Stampin’ Up! embossing folders, I can’t believe they retired it, Framed Tulips.  I still love it and use it often! 🙂  The embossed cardstock is Pacific Point, and on top of that is Daffodil Delight, both Stampin’ Up!  I cut a small circle of Daffodil Delight and put my sentiment, that I stamped in Pacific Point, on top with a Stampin’ Dimentional.  The sentiment I used is from the Stampin’ Up! set, A Round Array.

I love Tracey’s uncluttered style! 🙂  This card will be perfect for one of the Send A Smile 4 Kids children! 🙂  I’m pretty sure I’ll be making more of these! 🙂  But since I can’t make cards fast enough for all our kids, I have two guests with me today who help make cards for SAS4Kids! 🙂  I know my card makers and I will be busy, because I’ve added two new hospitals!  I will not have three childrens hospitals to make and send cards to! 🙂

Here is my first guest card maker, Janelle Klapperich from SD.  Janelle has donated cards a number of times, and she’s sent in some different cards this time! 🙂

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAJanelle has told me most of the cards she sent in this box are made with a cutting machine.  She didn’t say which one, but they’re awesome, the kids will love them!! 🙂  Look at these, same car, different background papers! 🙂


SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA   SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAHow about these?  I had no idea you could do this!  Janelle really knows how to put a card together! 🙂




It seems to me this would take a long time cutting and putting them together!  It must be like a puzzle!  They sure do look great in hand! 🙂






On more machine cut card, and two made the “regular” way;)  Janelle’s cards are all great!  Thank you so much Janelle for sending all these cards in for the kids!! 🙂


Now, I have one more guest cardmaker tonight, she’s from MA, Judy McLeavey:)  Judy is a first time card maker for me, but she may have sent to one of our other locations:)


These two cards have the same basic layout, but they look different just using different paper:)

Two more great cards! 🙂  All of Judy’s cards will be sent to SAS4Kids, as well as Janelle’s:)  Thank you Judy for helping out with our cause! 🙂


Thank you for coming by today, I hope you’ll check out some of my links! 🙂  I hope you’ll come back again! 🙂

    Janet, I love your blue & yellow card! It’s so professional looking! I’m partial due to yellow being my fav color, too… The card of Judy’s that is dark red & grey is elegant & eye catching. Janelle’s cards are sure to be a great hit with the kids. All very nice cards!!!

  2. Hello Janet and welcome to my Butterfly challenge. I hope you will enjoy playing along with the themes. Your pretty card fits right in and the little charm mimics the flowers perfectly. I love the bright colours. Thankyou for fluttering by #35. Hugs Mrs A.
