PSS - Celebrate Butterfly Banners

Hi!  I hope you're doing well.  I had a great weekend and got lots done preparing the yard for spending more time outside.   The weather was beautiful  - sunny sky - and we were all in short sleeves and flip flops!  We vacuumed and washed the car,  all the outdoor furniture, stained the deck and even washed the dog!  What a surprise to wake up on Tuesday morning and see the ground blanketed with snow.  My first thought was "you've got to be kidding me!"  Mother Nature is sure a trickster isn't she?  I was totally fooled!



I'm playing along with the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge today. This time it's an inspiration photo.  I saw all the colorful banners and ribbons and thought some butterflies were in order.  I made the background by creating a wavy mask of clouds and inking up the edges with distress ink. The butterflies are colored in Copic markers and adhered with adhesive foam tape.   It's fun to see all the different takes on this photo and all the different stamp sets that were used in different ways.  What a creative bunch of people playing here!
Thanks for stopping by!  More dental work tomorrow so wish me luck!  Oh yes.. and THINK SPRING!! LOL!!
