Okay...so it looks as if I'm all into butterflies again! (Remember Butterfly week a while back?) I just can't seem to get enough of those pretty creatures! They are literally popping up everywhere! Today's post is full of some Summer stuff - a couple of cards and some photos...stuff. I hope your weekend is a terrific one. We are doing house projects and a mountain of laundry. Hopefully later I can get some stamping in and maybe a movie. Thank you for visiting today! Taylored Expressions sneak peeks start again on Monday - August - wow. How did that happen? Anyhoo...
First up, some butterfly cards. I was inspired recently by a pretty color scheme and wanted to do my take on it. Soft yellow, a pretty coral pink and a light blue. YUM. That's the first card here:
A simple design - could be used with any sort of punch. Mittens for Winter, Flowers, Leaves... I added a pop of color along the bottom with the yellow scallops. I used light brown ink to put some text on the butterflies with the big Hero Arts Friendship text stamp. They seemed too plain without it. Glue down the middle only - to get them to pop off the page.
Okay, so I was closing up shop after making the top card and something came into my head...GINGHAM! You guys know that comes into my head very often! hahaha. So I made the exact same card with gingham butterflies and substituted green for blue! Yay! The sentiments on both cards are from PTI.
The gingham butterfly card I made as a thank you card for my friend Jane who invited me up to the hills for dinner last night. I brought her a big bunch of sunflowers and that card. As I was driving up to her house I saw these AMAZING clouds in the distance. I had to take a snap out the windshield! Isn't that neat?
And this is why Jane is my friend...(not really)...because she had lemon drop fixin's chilling in the freezer awaiting my arrival! Score! She found this cool lemon sugar stuff at BevMo and put it on the rims.
Um, yes please!!!!!
Wonderful! Drinks followed by a wonderful dinner and wonderful conversation late into the night. A perfect Friday evening.
I bought some Ranier cherries earlier in the week and went to eat them this morning and they were so lovely I had to take pictures. Yeah, I take pictures of everything! I think they're so colorful and simply perfect as only nature can do.
Life is just a bowl of cherries! Happy Saturday!
