Golden Kraft Butterfly Birthday

I can’t believe that my four day weekend is almost done and that Christmas was three days ago! I have been having a very nice weekend, I actually got to straighten up my house a little yesterday and worked on some of my projects. Last night I went to Fridays for dinner with Anthony and Bill. We got to see our friend Meg and wish her happy holidays. When we were finished with dinner we decided to take a ride out East and see our friend Shane sing with his friend Greg. They play at a place called The View, it’s right on the water in Oakdale. We sat at the bar and had a few drinks and enjoyed the music. Shane was quite surprised and happy that we showed up. he said that it made his night! Here are a few pictures from last night…

A nice way to end a Saturday! 🙂

My card that I have for you today uses a layout similar to one from a few weeks ago. For the card base I used a piece of Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of Mossy Meadow. I cut a piece of Kraft Card Stock to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and used the stamps from the Butterfly Basics Photopolymer Stamp Set to heat emboss the dashed line down the left side and greeting in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The fern is stamped in Mossy Meadow. I heat embossed the small butterflies with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder too and punched them out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch. My large butterfly is a piece of Gold Foil Sheet cut out with the Butterfly Thinlits. Some Glue Dots adhere them all to the card. For a little added interest I fluffed up the wings on them all. I love the Mossy Meadow, Kraft and Gold together and the images in the stamp set are just great! I hope that you like my card for today and that you all fully enjoy your Sunday! I thank you for stopping by to share in my day, another 3 day week ahead! Woo hoo! 🙂
