Butterfly Kisses




Very excited today as hubby is returning from his trip to California.  Normally I'm the one traveling for business and he's been at home by himself.  I have a lot more respect for the hard work he does to allow me to travel for a job I love and also personally at times.  It hasn't been all bad, but the little one has decided temper tantrums are a good thing around dinner time and it's been hard.  Thankful for a sunny day yesterday where they could play outside and I could get some work done around the house and work in my office while being able to still watch them.

I did get a few hours to do some stamping on Saturday night and probably could have done a little more, but with the time change figured I better not test the waters and get my sleep while I needed it.


I've been trying to play in some of the Our Craft Lounge challenges since I've gotten a few more of their sets.  This week was Distressed & Stressed.  Hopefully I did mine good enough, it's a little out of my comfort range but I finally used the Donna Salazar Distresser I purchased over a year ago.  The sketch is one of Mary Jo's over at TechoStamper that is for a one-on-one challenge at one of the yahoo groups I'm on.

The twill ribbon is stamped on and then I stitched across the top.  I sponged my butterfly with some various colors and adhered it with dimensionals.
Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!
