Beautiful Butterflies....

I am so loving the green-ness of the season! All the trees, the grass, the gorgeous flowers that are blooming! LOVE IT! I can't seem to get enough of being outside, when I'm not working that is! I went for my run this morning, had a lot on my mind (as usual) intended to only run 4 miles but wound up at 5 1/2 when I realized OOOPS! My friend was coming over at 9:00 and I would barely make it back in time! YIKES! Good thing she's a runner, as well as a crafter too, so she completely understands getting lost in your thoughts on a good run! Anywaaaaaay! Early in the morning is a great time to see all the animals too! I run partly on a tree covered trail before going through a neighborhood to get to the final trail and I see all the deer, bunnies, beautiful birds etc...! I see lots of butterflies too! That's what I was thinking of when I was choosing which card to share today! This is another one from "The Rubber Cafe" and I just love it!



I chose a different color scheme here though from my norm as I had gotten some "Fun Flock" and I wanted to use it! I also happen to have my family room in this color scheme! If you can't tell, the blue Fun Flock is on the butterfly but also on the 3 stripes below on the bottom of the card. I used double sided sticky tape from SU, piled it on, put a scrap paper on top and rubbed it into the tape and then tapped the extra off! I'm loving how it turned out! I hope you did too!

Until next time....
