Butterfly circles


I had a morning of the stupids.  I got called in to work for this morning.. turns out I didn’t listen to the date and it was actually for NEXT Friday.  Oops. 

So instead, I made a card with my 3 favourite things!  Butterflies, buttons, and ribbon.  Oh, one more – vintage book paper.  How can you go wrong with so many lovely goodies?

I had a lot of fun with this card, which is from sketch #33 (so great!) over at the fabulous Get Sketchy blog.  All of the lovely design team’s creations are amazing.  Go check them out.

I hand-cut the circles after tracing them from a little container I had.  Yep, random stuff around the house can be super useful for crafting.

And here’s the sketch I worked from:


Happy weekend.  Have a great one!


About Shauna

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.

    I hope you didn’t have to drive out to Sooke or the Cowichan Valley for work! That is silly they’d call you on a Friday morning regarding next Friday.
    I got one whole day of work the week. Since Spring Break I’ve been getting only 1-2 days a week. I should take up card making but I’ve taken up napping instead. It’s actually a pretty good hobby :) I keep saying I’ll take this time to learn Spanish… maybe once baby is born we’ll learn spanish together!
    Oh, and the butterfly cards are great!

    Haha, thanks!
    I really like your napping hobby. I’ve had to take up running, and am hoping that it’s not going to stay as a one time thing.
    Victoria called me Thursday night. It’s an automated system. so the computer voice said the date and I didn’t listen. I guess it does the call outs between a certain time every night and every morning, and as close to when the teacher put in the request as possible.

    Bless! I was always the one turning up at school on teacher training days! Love your scrumptious, happy card – it’s almost alive! Love the wordy butterflies – might have to borrow this idea!

    Oh no, Vicky! Well, at least it got you up and ready with a free holiday thrown in for good measure.
    Definitely borrow the wordy butterfly idea. I think I may have seen it over at Dawn McVey’s blog, or at least I saw something similar and adapted.

  5. Shauna this is beautiful!! What a fun take on the sketch!! Great job and thanks for playing along!!
