Joan's Gardens Butterfly


Hey everyone, having one of those days that everything that can go wrong is....ever have one of those? Been trying to catch up from our few days away, sometimes I am not sure it is worth it.lol This is the card that I created for Joan and her challenge this week to:
Use the colors Peach and blue (teal)
Use some Butterflies
Add something Frilly
at Joan's Gardens .
Rick and I were in Winston-Salem the other week for lunch (using a gift card we got as a gift) and I ran into JoAnn's and found this paper on sale by DCWV The Mariposa matpak and I fell in love. I wish that I was as happy with my card, but I am not. Not quite what I envisioned, but I will post anyway. I also picked up a couple of packs of little clear stamps there by Studio 112 and this butterfly was in one of them. I like it and the way it stamped. I also took a picture of the another one of the sets that I got and stamped the inside of my card with.


Hope your day is better than mine, and looking forward to a good one tomorrow. Take care and see you soon.

I think the card is lovely and what a great image with the paper. The colors and coloring of your sweet little butterfly is gorgeous. Have a better day and think about the fun time you had with hubby while you were away, maybe that will wash away those evil bad days we all have. :)

This is gorgeous, Patti! I love the Mariposa papers and your butterfly is beautiful! I hope you are having a better day today so far! I have to travel to MA for a few days so I will miss the yard sale at Betty's. I wish I could go! Jennie's stuff alone would be worth browsing - lol!
