Happy Weekend everyone!!

It's a gorgeous sunny day in Montreal today!  Perfect for getting some work done outside the house!!

I have to say I've been feeling a little un-creative lately. We had very gloomy weather early this week and since them I'm having trouble waking up..LOL!! Today has helped a whole lot, so I hope to be showing you a lot more creations this week.

After removing tones of weeds outside, I came in for an hour to make this card (my hand was killing me..LOL):

I used my liquid pearls for the first time, it's the shiny purple you see on the butterfly image. This image was a freebie at Bugaboo Stamps a while ago and it's the first time I use it, isn't it pretty?

I used this great sketch from Freshly Made Sketches

and this photo inspiration from Die Cuttin' Divas:

I will be entering the following challenges:
1. Freshly Made Sketches, #34
2. Die Cuttin Divas, challenge 64 color combination
3. Catch the Bug Challenges, things with wings
4. Craft your days away, all creatures great and small
5. Crafty Calendar Challenge, things with wings
6. CES Challenges, farewell challenge, anything goes ;( 

HAPPY MOTHER'DAY to all of my fellow crafters!

Remember to..
love & create ...with a smile :)

I love your image choice. For some reason I keep over looking these great Butterfly designs. May have to dust them off and print them out soon. Thanks so much for joining in with us this week for the Catch The Bug Things With Wings Challenge with Bugaboo Stamps. I hope you enjoyed it enough to join us again for our next challenge. Right, I’m now going to FLY away and see what else I can find!
