More Daisies & Rockin' Butterflies!

I am really hoping that Upsy Daisy does not become the new Heartfelt Thanks! Remember when Heartfelt Thanks came out and we all loved it SOOOO much that we practically loved it to DEATH??? It kinda wore out its welcome in a hurry. (Don't get me wrong, I actually LOVE HF Thanks, and have been using it with much more frequency lately!) This is an amazing set, though, and I just love those silhouetted flowers.

I went back to one of my old favorites - a "Z" fold card. These look super cool! Basically, whether your card is horizontal or vertical, you take the right front edge and fold it all the way back to the left front (folded) edge. Simple enough! I love how it looks every time!

AND . . . to those of you who have participated in my "Follow the Butterflies" challenge this week . . . ROCK ON!! The samples you have done are AMAZING! For those of you haven't participated yet . . . well, what are you WAITING for????

Stamps: Upsy Daisy, Small Script, Polka Dot bg
Paper: Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Real Red
Accessories: Large classic and scallop rectangle Nestabilities, paper piercing tool/mat, stylized silver hodgepodge hardward, May Arts black organza polka dot ribbon, small oval punch

Wendy, your card is Fantastic!! I love the color combo & the great fold!! I can see where that stamp set could become a favorite-very pretty!

I agree with you about HF and this set. I just got mine and am almost hesitant to use it so it doesn't get over-used!!

BUT, that said, I LOVE your card, the fold, the colors, everything!!!

Wendy . . . I saw one of your cards and your picture on split coast stampers . . . you don't look as old as I, but you didn't happen to go to LDS business college around 1984 did you? You look REALLY familiar to me and I knew a Wendy with reddish hair from SLC then . . . . .just wondering. . . check out my blog and say hi if you are the Wendy I think you are . . .

Beautiful card Wendy. Hope the set doesn't get overdone too. It's funny about that z fold, as you sent me one long ago and I remembered that the other day and made a sneak peek card with it. I haven't even posted the card yet, but love the fold and will credit you for my inspiration when I do!
