Hello blogger fans. I have had some people ask me, 'when do u find the time to craft with having a part time job & having 3 kids?'
ANSWER- My 10 yr old goes to school all day & my 4 yr old (yup turned 4 on Sept 16) goes to preschool half days M-F in the afternoons (12:30-3:30 pm), which is when my 18 month old naps.....so, I get some stuff in there and then I'm usually up until 11:00pm-midnight after all the kids go to bed......so ya, needless to say, hubs and I have not gone to bed at the same time for quite some time.....I think he misses me.
Onto my card.
Well, I initially made this for the Sugar Nellie Facebook Challenge of a One layer card. Then I missed the deadline *poop*, so I opted to save it for another great challenge. Then the Less is More Challenge of CAS wanting to get 1000 entries came up & TA-DA....I could use my fabby wee one layered card!
Meet Butterfly Girl. I stamped her with memento black ink right onto my kraft cardstock & colored only aspects of her with my watercolor pencils. I used my opaque white gel pen to make all the dots you see. The butterfly line on the bottom is my MS butterfly punch & the wee ones flying around are cut from that same punch line. Who needs a small punch when you got this baby!! woohooo!! I did some faux stitching and complimented my card with a sentiment from my Garden Whimsy SU set. Oh & don't forget the sponging & glitter! Now I don't do CAS very often or very well so what you see is what you get! LOL
