So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Butterfly Sending Love

This is for the House That Stamps Built Repeat Impressions Challenge. It was following a sketch. (J1311) http://www.thehousethatstampsbuilt.com/sketch-challenges/what-if-wednesday-sketch-challenge-j1311/

I  used the Fiskars butterfly shape template to create the template for the Iris fold. I used origami ATTOH  Butterfly paper and it worked SO much better than cardstock as it didn't  make the template so thick and heavy...it is very workable and thinner paper and worked like a charm!. The cs is Blue Raspberry and Florida Peach cs from GKD, dp is Basic Grey, white glitter paper from Doodlebug that I colored black. I used the Labels 4 Spellbinders Grand Calibur and small labels 4 as die cuts as well as cloud die cuts from PaperTrey. Then added some Smiley Flowers (Dress It Up Jess James Co), ribbon (Michaels). The inside was stamped with Billance Twlight blend and peacock and Versamagic Sea Breeze with the Hero Arts Sending Love stamps. Added some bling and it is Sending You Love.
