CARDS, Crafty Creations Challenges

On the Wings of a Butterfly

This week’s Crafty Creations challenge is WHITE PLUS ONE COLOR.   I decided on  blue and white and used a layer of translucent vellum embossed with my cuttlebug.   The edge is punched with a Martha Stewart daisy punch.   The butterflies are cut with my Cricut and the HOME DECOR cartridge.  I cut two layers, one from the dp and another from light cardboard to create the die cut.  I added two tiny blue pearls on each, and popped them up on foam dimensional tape.   I glued the vellum discreetly under the butterflies and at the corner that is tucked into a slit in the base blue layer dp.

Well,  I said I’d be back to talk about camp which was truly exhausting and I must admit, not much of a vacation for us adults!  Our boys enjoyed it and I’m glad they did.  Hopefully they will retain some good memories as I have of my childhood camping experiences.  I have so much more respect for my parents and what they had to go through for our family vacations!!  lol

I was so happy to get home to my own bed and the modern conveniences of electricity,  dishwasher,  coffeemaker, and OH YES a toilet that  does not require me to do a dangerous balancing act;  holding my nose while squatting and trying not to let the bottoms of my pantlegs touch whatever is on the outhouse floor!!!

Thankfully we will be having a REAL VACATION in February when we go to Jamaica, where we will stay at an all inclusive resort where I won’t have to cook and clean for a change!!! Oh and I’m pretty sure I’ll have a toilette that I will not have to share with the racoons!  Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about!!

Thanks for stopping by today!

    Well, I left the comment about this one with the little girly one, it is cute too…lol

    So your camping was more than you bargained for…I was supposed to go labor day week-end, but coming out of surgery prevented me from it. . Maybe that was a good thing. SMILE Hugsxo
