Sara K and Butterflies

Wow, this is a record for my blog....four cards in two days and I am not done!!  Sending DH to Home Depot for a wheel-barrel so I can start working on the yard. My son-in-law took his WB back last fall :(  and I miss it ...just makes cleaning the yard up so much easier you fill it and take it to the woods out back and dump! I like easy!! We have so much work to do outside and I need to find a big source of energy to paint the shed and front porch railing,  pull weeds, plant flowers, etc. I cleaned all the window a month ago and that was a mistake for they all need wash again due to the pollen. YUCK...hate washing windows!

This sweet card was stamped with  Sara K., "Country Girl" . Gosh, I love Sara K stamps for they are so sweet, endearing and nostalgic which makes me smile just looking at them!  This so reminds me of my great grandfathers and great aunts homes where they had huge gardens, barns and of course chickens! I remember my great grandmother running around the yard trying to catch one. Every time she got near it would flap it's wings and fly in the other direction...too funny! Don't you love the green and orange colors together?  This card was made for two challenges!

!. Simple Scrapping Crafts, card challenge and it is to make your own back ground. Easy peezy!! I took white card stock and embossed it with a Cuttlebug folder. Then I took green and orange colorbox eye cats and lightly went over the raised area's with them. I love doing this for you can make your background paper the exact same colors as you color your image.

Woweeeeeeeeeeee! Colleen -- You are ROCKIN' these challenges and doing a fantastic job. I LOVE the whole "orange" theme and think it's a great color, that for some reason I don't use enough. You have NOW inspired me to create and color more with it, because it's wonderful.

ALL of your cards have been amazing and you are better every day! Way to GO!!


PS: I have a request for you to think about. Will your PLEASE (pretty please) consider shutting of the "WORD VERIFICATION" for yours comments. I get them wrong every time and then it takes me forever to post my comment! THANK YOU!!! ;)
