Grateful Butterflies

Hi everyone!  I have a couple cards to share with you.  I had some time to stamp this weekend just for fun!  Don't cha just LOVE that!?!

This first card is for the Embellish Magazine challenge, to use Kraft, Aqua Mist, Sweet Blush and stitching on your card.  OK, ummmm, I totally forgot to write down the STITCHING part of the challenge on my post-it note!  So, can we pretend that I sewed the pom-pom fringe on my card?  Please?  The sentiment is from Verve's amazing Thankful Hearts set.

I used my SU butterfly dies and embossing folders for this one, I also used my new SU border punch.  The beautiful rose flower is from Zva Creative as are all the pink pearls.  I found the pom-pom fringe at Craft Warehouse and it comes in LOTS of colors!  I had to buy 5 -2 shades of pink, white and 2 shades of yellow, fun fun!!



This next card uses Ippity's Where You Should Be set.  I love this stamp, can you believe this is the first time I used it?  This one is REALLY CAS.  A small piece of Bella Blvd paper ("Nana's Apron" piece), kiwi kiss border punch, some primas and rhinestones.  Easy peasy!

Some of you may have noticed I didn't post a DT card for this week's H{ippity} Hop.  I am sad to announce that I had to step down from the team.  It was a difficult decision for me as you all know my love for Unity/Ippity stamps and the girls on the team.  But I had a bit too much on my plate and my family time was suffering.  Sometimes these decisions must be made.

Never fear!  You will see PLENTY of Unity/Ippity creations from me and you can still buy Ippity Stamps from me!  AND I just re-ordered Where You Should Be, so my PayPal buttons are back up and running!!  There is one day of my SALE left, so check it out.
