Well, today is a butterfly sort of day - which is just tickity-boo!!!
First, I created the card above for this weeks' challenge over at SUO Challenges - in Celebration of Butterflies. I pulled out all of my stamp sets that have butterflies - and finally decided on Great Friend which I haven't used much. I had fun applying the new Embossing Powder from the New Summer Mini!!!!! Woo Hooo for coloured embossing powder!!!!!
I stamped the images with Versa Mark then sprinkled a bit of embossing powder on, one at a time, until the image was totally covered. They aren't symmetrical like real butterflies - but just as fun to look at.
I used the Scalloped Dotted Ribbon Border punch, again, to create the edge around the oval. I know I'm going to keep using that technique!!!

Allison and I went to Tamye's last night for Marguerita Monday and THIS is the wonderful glittery purse I was so excited about. SOOOOOO simple and glamorous! I have a few other creations to share, but I 'll save them for later.
We used chunky glitter, so I can also see me coming up with a number of different glittery purses!!!! Too cute!

Lastly, here are some butterflies with a bit of bling that we created at the Extravaganza on Saturday. I just love this image, and love how we applied the ink to the stamp with sponge daubers in order to get the two colours. Wonderful idea!!!!

Well, the day is done. I went to a yoga class this afternoon for the first time in years - after having gone to physio yesterday. So, I need to put ice on my knee. I HAVE to keep up with the exercises, though, to continue to strengthen the muscles around my knee. I enjoyed the yoga and will go again!!!!
Tomorrow IS another busy day - full, full, full!!!!! Not sure that I'll stay out of trouble - but here's hoping???
Thanks for stopping by - Joan
