Sorry about the absence but I had a whirlwind of a weekend. Lots of work and lots of play so instead of stressing about getting cards done and posting I just let it be for a couple days. :)
I actually started this card last week with the intention of entering it into the TGF yellow and blue DTT challenge but I didn't quite get it done in time. So I grabbed a couple Martha Stewart butterfly punches and decided to enter it into the Farm Fresh Friday punch challenge instead. ;)
The new Lovely Bean is the star of this show and I wanted it to look like she is fluttering right a long with her butterfly pals. I think the fun cloud paper really helps with that so I was lucky to find this last little piece of it in my scrap bag. Yep, I went to town with the random mix of scraps again and it felt good to fully use up a couple more pieces. What can I say... I'm determined to whittle down the piles of paper so that I don't have to put myself on a "no new paper diet". Gasp! Shock! The horror! I know, I know... it's blasphemous to even think about such a thing, especially with all of the new pretties previewed at CHA recently. I just have to find a bit more time to really get in the organizing/purging mode, which will hopefully happen in a week or two.
Okey dokey, I'm going to wrap this up. It's been good talkin' at'cha all again and I'll see ya in 24!
