I should be packing! Note the word should!

My schedule today includes cleaning up my craft room messes (yes, more than one) and packing for my trip.  I will do both later.....Mrs. A.  AKA:  Valery hosts a Butterfly Challenge and everyone knows when butterflies are fluttering by one must give them a place to rest....thus my card.....
As luck would have it, I was finishing up this card when I read this month's challenge (normally only 2 weeks, but this one is longer)  It's Butterfly Bingo.  So the line I chose was this....Diecuts, Butterfly and Designer Paper.  The diecuts are Poppystamps, the butterflies are also Poppystamp dies.  I am having a brain freeze right  now and could not tell you the paper line.  They are pieces left from a card I made a short time ago.  If I go back through my blog I'm sure I could find it.  It could be Marion Smith or Graphic 45.  Anyway, it is designer paper.  The twine is The Twinery.  The sentiment is from my computer.  Here's the inside:
I think now I should go back and get my packing finished.  Before I go, please have a look at the cards being shared on Valery's blog challenge.  And if you should see a butterfly or two, perhaps you would like to play along.  For rules (and there are only a few)  Check it out here

And last but surely not least, this card was made from snippets, I shall flutter over to visit Di and share this card on her snippet challenge.  For rules and to check it out flutter this way.

I almost forgot.  My husband was running errands as was I.  I guess my dogs don't like it when we both go away.  I should apologize to my neighbors....don't you think?

 FYI:  No animals were harmed during the filming of this video.  Though you would think they had been!

Honestly, now I shall continue with the tasks on my list.  Happy crafting everyone.  See you when I get back home.

  1. This is a lovely card...the colours are so pretty and the overall design is lovely. That is a gorgeous window die!

  2. Mary, your card is so lovely inside and out! I really like what you did on the other side of the window, your butterflies, the tags, and the wonderful colors!!

  3. Absolutely fabulous card Mary! You always use those Poppystamps dies so well whereas I have a little basket of bit and pieces on my desk and have been trying to make a card with them for months now - to no avail.

    Have a great holiday - and I did giggle at the 'doggie duet' :))

    Hugs, Di xx

  6. What a beautiful card Mary! I love that window and the scene outside the window. Your butterflies are so gorgeous. Love your sentiment on the flags and your inside is as beautiful as your outside. I hope you have a safe trip and enjoy yourselves. I got a kick out of your dogs, they were really missing you and the hubs. Then it looked like they weren't getting anywhere so they gave up. lol So cute they are!! Hugs

  7. I love the soft colours in this card and the butterflies are beautiful.

  10. Mary this is so lovely. The butterflies look as if you've backed with vellum? I love the harmony of the colours together and the inside is as always as gorgeous as the outside. Hope you enjoyed your trip. hugs Mrs A. (butterfly challenge).
