Here They Come Again!

I had every intention last week of making my weekly butterfly card and sending it in the mail, despite the fact that I was attending Convention and had a house full of guests . . . riiiiiigggghhhhhhttt!!! I actually DID make a card last Sunday, but haven't photographed it or anything. But, I did ANOTHER card yesterday that combined two of the challenges on SCS - TLC180 and CC178 (this makes butterfly #49).

I used the most FAB stamps from Kitchen Sink! I have been DYING to try these stamps forever. My good friend Connie (hey, girl!!) brought hers all the way from Arizona for me to play with when she was here for Convention last week. Sad for her, she may NEVER get them back (I do believe I used the phrase "Cold, dead fingers!" when I called her to tell her when she would get them back from me!!) These stamps are NOT for the wimpy stamper, as they do take a bit of a learning curve to get them lined up (some of them are 4-step stamps, meaning there are four stamps whose images are layered on top of each other!!

Here is a link to their AWESOME 3-step stamp sets (ENABLER ALERT!!!):

The instructions for making this funky "spring fold" can be found here:
