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! 🙂

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:)
