Kind Thoughts

kindthoughts.jpg

Late night last night finishing up a big project, and not a lot of time to create just for (or time to brush off excess glitter before taking a picture, huh?). I used what was already on my table (All supplies are SU!) and was so happy that this week’s sketch was an easy one! The butterfly here is 3-D and an easy way to add a little something extra to anything (I did a scrapbook page with one here). I stamped three symmetrical butterflies and cut them out. I stamped another on the cardstock with the sentiment, and folded each cut out butterfly in half and adhered to the card. After everything was attached, I applied crystal effects over parts of the patterned paper and the butterfly wings, and dumped glitter all over. Pretty!

Make sure to check out what are sure to be fantastic interpretations of this sketch from Beate, Cami, Charmaine, Laurie, Lori, Mary Jo, and Sharon. I’ll be seeing a few of these lovely ladies in California soon and I’m so excited! So much to do yet, and so little time!

eta: Thank you for the sweet birthday wishes! Y’all have made me blush! I had a bunch of emails and private messages and have a stack of cards back home that I’ll open later. Thank you for thinking of me!
