Thank You Friend


Welcome back to Monday!  I had to take a few days off as we had national cheer leading competitions.  ALL of our teams placed in the top 5 which I think was GREAT!  We are coming along on this time and enjoying all the competitions even though it's taking a lot more of my time away from stamping.

Hubby was nice and let me take a nap yesterday after it was all said & done and regain some energy to stamp a few cards.  Today is the release for the new butterfly die set from The {Stamps} of Life.  I can never have enough butterfly stamps or die cuts.  The TSOL dies are wonderful and they cut super clean and easy!

I created my background using the type4background set and layered it on kraft.  I cut the butterfly die using craft and one the large wings with patterned paper.  Instead of using the small wing die cut I decided to stamp the wing directly on the die cut using the butterfly2build set.


My sentiment is from the new set messages4friend and added viva pearl pen to the circle die cut.

I used the current Card Positioning Systems sketch-I didn't get to play like I wanted to in their anniversary challenges so I had to hop back in here with their current sketch.  I've changed up the layout of it and added the beaded circle background.


Thanks for stopping by and visiting me today.  I know my posts have been sporadic, but I appreciate all my followers!
