Already halfway through the week! Like they promised yesterday it rained here all day. I did run over to Scrap-A-Latte and I spent some time with Renee. We went over this month’s sets for class and I picked out some paper. After I got home I watched a little YouTube on my Apple TV and then finally started to straighten up the Stampin’ Galley. There is still a lot more that needs to be done but I finally did start! I went over to my parent’s for dinner and Daniel discovered that he really likes corn, he had about four helpings! Back to my house and some craftiness before watching Limitless and then speaking to Carolyn on Skype for a little bit before calling it a night.
Today I’m back over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s sketch…
I played with some Hero Arts goodies to make my card. The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and I used another piece for the background. It’s created with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass, Chipped Sapphire and Picked Raspberry and a Mini Ink Blending Tool. The flowers are form the Hero Arts Let Love Grow Layering Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped them in Simon Says Stamp Teeny Bikini, Hot Mama, Green Apple, Green Leaf and Hero Arts Unicorn Ink right onto the background. Next up are a strip of Blackberry Bliss and a some Vellum, both are flagged and adhered to the card with SNAIL. My butterfly is from the Hero Arts Butterflies Layering Photopolymer Stamp Set. Some Simon Says Stamp Duckling, Rosie Cheeks and Teeny Bikini are used to stamp it and it’s cut out with the Coordinating Frame Cuts. A few pieces of Foam Tape hold it in place. My greeting is from the Hero Arts Thanks Stamp & Cuts. I cut it out from a piece of Black 110lb and Black Fun Foam, they are adhered to each other and the card with Multi-Matte Medium. There has to be some sequins so I adhered a few Pretty Pink Posh Spring Mix and Summer Mix randomly around the images. I needed a nice bright card to help chase away all of the rain and I think this one is perfect! I hope that you enjoy my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge.

Justin, this is a beautiful card. It is so bright and cheery and a nice change of pace from fall or holiday cards. I love all the colors and the design using the vellum to showcase the butterfly. Great job.
Thanks HJ! I needed a break from the Holidays! LOL! 🙂
ohhhhh…..I likey this card. A lot. Oh, please tell Daniel that corn is the best thing on the planet. After ice cream, dark chocolate, and buttered popcorn. LOL
Thank you so much Michael! I will tell Daniel your thoughts on corn! He is with you on the others already! LOL! 🙂

You must have known I needed a bright, beautiful, colorful, happy card to start this dismal day. I’m down with some kind of bug and boy, I just hate wasting a day lying around doing nothing of any consequence but that is how this day will turn out. You have yourself a Wonderful Wednesday and don’t forget to Thank a Veteran. None of us would be so blessed without them. Love ya, XO
Yes, I think that we both needed a bright card to perk us up! I’m sorry that you are still not feeling well. I’m don’t like to not feel like doing anything so I know what you mean. I hope that you are feeling better today, sending you well thoughts! Yes, we have to remember what Veteran’s Day is about! Love you too! XOXO 🙂
