Have you seen a butterfly laugh?

Howdy folks!

Well, it's another Tuesday and with this month winding down I am starting to get anxious for the return of my all time fave show... sing it with me now... Glee! :)
My fellow Gleek and bloggin' buddy, Kadie, turned me on to the Glee Project reality series this summer which turned out to be one of the extra nice benefits of finally having high-speed internet. I've been watching the shows here and even though the finale took place this past Sunday, I have to wait until Thursday before I can watch the episode online and see who won (because I refuse to peek early and spoil the surprise). ;)
I have my favorites and hopefully one of them will win and then I will be really excited for the new season to start already!

Ok, ok, enough TV talk... onto today's card. This is actually one of the new Laugh girls that I colored up for the CC Designs booth at Summer CHA. I know that I've mentioned before how these new cuties have quickly become my faves of Christine's designs and I can't wait to watch the line grow and expand with all sorts of new Laugh characters. This card features Butterfly Laugh and with her arms spread out wide like that she looked to me like she was wanting to give someone a BIG hug... thus the sentiment I paired with her.
I also used one of the new CC Designs Daisy Chain cutters up along the border. Because I had so much color and pattern going on with Butterfly, the embellishments and the background paper, I kept the border kinda tone on tone with just a bit of inking on the edges to help it stand out. All in all this card makes me smile... hope it makes you smile too. :)

TTYL!

Totally adorable card! I was hoping you were watching The Glee Project - remember when I said I was going to e-mail you (time really gets away from me lately!)? That was one of the things I wanted to ask you your thoughts about! I just watched the finale today and I won't give anything away, but I thought it was a wonderful finale! :-)Traci

kadie said...

Hey Dearie!!
I can finally pop over and read your post :) I was in the same boat as you, so as soon as I saw my name and GP together in your post (thanks for the shout out! xoxo), I had to stop reading just in case, because I don't have cable and had to wait until today too!!
I've been avoiding anything GP oriented this whole week, in anticipation for today! haha
But I wanted you to know that this card and the others this week are totally adorable and inspiring, as always!! Fantastic layouts and product collaborations. There isn't a day that doesn't go by that I'm not inspired by your talent and creativity. Big Hugs and happy finale watching FINALLY! Woot woot!!
