Butterfly Kisses

How can it be that something you want to mass produce can take SO LONG to make??? Is it because I only get to stamp about 30 minutes at one time - and that's on a really good day and I only have really good days which allow me to stamp 2 maybe 3 times a week if I'm lucky? LOL

These cards are totally CASE'd from Prairie Paper & Ink, check out Amy's blog; I love her work.

The base card is Whisper White layered with Chocolate Chip in which I distressed the edges. Then I added a layer of Purely Pomegranate a small piece of DP (4" x 4"), then I tied it together with the Chocolate Chip ribbon. The butterfly is from Papertrey's Butterfly Kisses set - I never use that set enough!

I used the Nestabilities for the scalloped and embossed rectangle in which the butterfly is stamped on. The Just Because and Thank You are from Papertrey's Paper Tray set and are both stamped in Chocolate Chip. Lastly I added the flower and brad in the lower left-hand corner.

What do you think? I love these colors together; a few things I'd do differently, but overall I thought they turned out nice.

Today has been a rough day; our oldest had 2 baby teeth pulled - yeah baby teeth - no biggy right? Well, it is when they aren't even REMOTELY loose. I was with her; they did 3 "tubes" of shots - holy moly! Me...I'd be crying! I, um, truly, totally, HATE THE DENTIST. Love my dentist; just hate the work they do. LOL! She was a real trooper! She's doing good this evening, she's had some ice cream and an orange. Next week she gets 3 more pulled as well as getting all her bottom braces on - whew - we'll need a break after that; momma's heart can't handle it!

Thanks for peeking in; I hope you have a marvelous week!!! ~M.
