Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Well, I seem to be making a lot of butterfly cards right now. I guess I am just in a butterfly kind of mood? I have been wanting to try the technique I used on this card for awhile and I keep just not doing it. Well, today was the day (thanks to a bit of a nudge from my nephew) and I love how it turned out, but I have a couple of things still to work on with it.

Butterflies and roses

Butterflies and roses

Second guessing myself, something I do a lot. I had the idea for this card in my head, and I had to get it out. I think it turned out kind of cool, but I have been second guessing myself about it quite a bit. The thing is that I have a weird feeling that I have seen something similar to the background roses somewhere else. One way or the other it was a fun card to make!

Puppy party

When our pup turned one we had a birthday party for him. Honestly, it was more for the kids than anything else. I do try and spoil him a bit on his ‘special day’. Our first pup was a rescue dog and we had no idea when his birthday was, so we celebrated the day he joined our family as “Calvin Dog Day” He had a weakness for strawberry ice cream so he always got some on that day. (There was a year he was the only one to get any of the strawberries my grandfather grew in his garden)

New card style! Well, I have made swing cards in the past, just not for awhile. This is the first time that I have had any up in my store. I needed a bit of a challenge and this was a good one. There are definitely some things I still need to work on with this style of card, but I think it turned out pretty well.
