"A" for Effort?

Although I had EVERY intention of trying to upload this post so that it would show up while I was out of town, I just ran out of time! I DID get the card made before I left . . . does THAT count???

I recently started playing and making butterflies with this Spellbinders die called "Bugs" . . . I really like how the butterflies come out when then are "reverse stenciled." For a tutorial on how I did this, click on the link below:

Reverse Stenciling

This makes card #46 in my "Follow the Butterflies" challenge (there is a link at the right for more info). I swear, it feels like sometimes the only cards I make have butterflies on them!! I still have 58 more to go . . .

I also did a two-fer card as far as SCS challenges go on this one. CC174 - Groovy Guava, Barely Banana and Chocolate Chip; and SC184.

I stopped on my way home from river rafting by Jackson Hole at our family's condo in Bear Lake. I think I am trying to have WAY too much fun this summer! I'll only be here 'til tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon, then I'm back home again . . . 'til next weekend!! It sure is making the summer fly by!!

Be sure to check out the butterflies on Donya's blog today! Can't wait to get my hands on THOSE!!
