What a busy day! My daughter goes to a local college and takes the car for her commute. Friday is her day off - thus it's my day to have my car! Actually I really like dragging her along with me to help me load up groceries. We enjoy spending our time together talking as we run from errand to errand and usually stop and have lunch together. The rest of the week it's school and work for her, and keeping the house in order for me. My husband is having some friends over to play cards tonight and I'm cooking for them. Of course they had to pick a Friday during Lent so I had to get creative with the menu since no meat is allowed.
I'm slipping this one in just under the wire at Retro Sketches. I just couldn't pass this one by. I love the simplicity of the design and enjoyed trying to find different ways to fussy it up a bit. I used a background die for the base to add some layers. I moved the sentiment to the bottom and stamped it on a border die. It still seemed to need a little something so I added a bit of ribbon and a bow - and my latest addiction. YES! Those bitty wooden accent pieces that I'm starting to see at more stores. I hate paying shipping so if I can find it at a store near home ... I'm there! I found this butterfly at Joann's.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend!
