Ok, I’m one tired boy! LOL! I got into Manhattan a little early yesterday, I had to clean up the store from class the night before. I put away the tables and chairs and swept and put all of the displays back. It was a steady day, not too busy but a good flow of people. Barbara and I had Chop’d for lunch, it’s a salad place and you can get all kinds of different ones and it was delicious! I also got a nice walk in since it’s about 10 blocks from the store! I caught the 7:12 home and was back in my house by 8:15. As soon as I got home I stared to do my cutting for class and finished that around 10:30. This morning I have to go in a little early and head uptown to pick up some stuff for the store. I have to leave at 4:45 today to get the train out to Babylon where Andrew is going to pick me up so I can get to Scrap-A-Latte in time for tonight’s card class! Fingers crossed peeps!

If you have a minute and are so inclined my Brother and Sister-in-law have entered Daniel in a contest with Newsday for the cutest little boy on Long Island. You click HERE to go and cast your vote for him! Thanks! Just in case you need a little reminder of just how cute he is…

Now on to today’s card which is for this week’s Paper Players Clean & Simple Butterflies from Sandy

Paper Players #291

I kept mine super Clean & Simple! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe. My main panel is a piece of Solar White 80lb and all of my images and greeting are from the Hero Arts You’re So Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the flowers and the greeting in Tide Pool and the leaves in Forever Green. The panel is then adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My butterfly is from the Hero Arts Color Layering Butterflies and is stamped in Light Peach to Dark Peach Ombre in for the base layer and Unicorn White Pigment ink for the top. I added some Clear Fine Detail Embossing Powder to it and heat set it. The Coordinating Dies cut it out and a thin strip of Foam Tape adheres it to the card. Very simple indeed but I love that butterfly and the fun flowers! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thank you for coming by today! Have an amazing Thursday! 🙂
