I’m being Fresh today!

Hey everyone!  Hope you were as happy to hear Phil’s prediction as I was.  I never understand why we listen to a groundhog in the first place, but Spring early is a happy sign!

Today’s post is one of my favorites based on the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches – here’s the link: http://freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com/2013/01/freshly-made-sketches-71-sketch-by.html

So when I saw this sketch I had visions of a ladybug lovebug and a wonderful Valentine tag, but when I got down to the Craft Cave and started working something else took over.  First let me tell you that with butterflies all the rage I’ve been wanting to get the 2 butterfly punches from Stampin up, but I just couldn’t come to terms with the cost.  Yesterday I was at this craft store Right at Home Scrapbooking and gave myself $20 to spend.  Walking thru I found these cute die cuts of 3 butterflies for only $11 and they look exactly like the SU punches!  Can I tell you I LOVE them!  They are super cute and easy to use.  The other thing I bought was this paint that you use to make your own pearls – of course I can’t remember the name so I’ll have to come back and edit this, but all of the pearls on this card were made with this pearl paint.  So here’s the card I made for the sketch!

I love this card!  I think it’s so cute.  I’ll come back and list the supplies – I’m actually heading to a GS cookie booth with J right now.  Have a Magical Day!
