Butterfly Blog Linky Party & MME Card!!!


Greetings to all my butterfly loving blog hopping friends!!!

Spring is just around the corner and my very sweet friend Eva had a fabulous idea for a blog hop!  When she shared it with me I just couldn't help but say YES!!!

On this hop there are actually also prizes to be won, so be sure you start at Eva's blog to get all of the sweet details!

I decided to play along with the My Mind's Eye Challenge 21 for this card.  I have so many beautiful MME papers sitting in my scrap space it is a shame not to enjoy them!  My idea was to create a masculine card and to include butterflies on it, while still trying to keep a manly appeal.  Was I successful? 
Here are some details
I just *had* to use the packaging from the trims that come with this glorious Lost 'N Found collection!!! 

Everything on this card is My Mind's Eye except for a bit of vintage lace, 1 Epiphany flower button that was created with MME papers, white and blue thread and florist wire for my large butterfly.

This card is going to my sweet hubby.  We have our challenges and it's a busy life raising two toddler boys but he can make me laugh until tears come to my eyes!  There's a joy in that that you can't easily put to words, but this sentiment was perfect for what I needed to say. 

Well, I hope you are enjoying "Springing Ahead" with Daylight Savings Time today!  Thank you so much for popping on over and have a Super Scrappity weekend!!!

Your card is brillant - all those wonderful textures and subtle pattern combinations. Thanks for coming by and leaving such a kind comment on my Haiku mini-book. I'm just stunned by what's happened in Japan now.
