Butterfly Milestone

75 . . . 75 . . . I can hardly believe that this card makes card #75 in my "Follow the Butterflies" challenge. Which means, ladies (and gents, for the few of ya that are out there!), that I have only 29 more to go!! I can hardly believe it. Today it is official . . . we will be picking my son up in Germany in exacly SEVEN months!! (Can't WAIT for September 5th!!) If you are new to my blog, the details for this challenge can be viewed if you hit the link on the sidebar to the right. There is also a slideshow of all 75 of the butterfly cards I have created thus far. WOW! Can't believe I have done so many already (although I am starting to feel creatively stumped . . . that's a LOT of butterflies!)

I have tried UBER hard to use a new/different butterfly on every card. I actually discovered a couple months ago that I accidentally DID use one of 'em twice! Can you believe it??? Sad, sad, sad . . . but I guess it was bound to happen! BONUS points to anyone who spotted it and can tell me the two cards I did that with!! (Good luck with that!!)

This card is a double-challenge card I did for my gallery on SCS. I incorporated last Monday's technique lover's challenge (TLC206 - recessed window), and SC214. This card took me well over an hour to finish, but I had fun and learned something new!! HERE is a link to Judy's tutorial on how to create a recessed window (you can adapt it to any size you want!)

This is just gorgeous! I wouldn't have thought that I'd like the combination of colors, but they work beautifully!

Another butterfly beauty! Can't believe the time has gone like that. Seems you just started doing this recently!

Congratulations Wendy! 75 butterfly cards, and they are all wonderful! It's okay if you used one twice...we'll never tell.

Wendy,
Your butterfly cards are gorgeous. I bought a paper with butterflies and thought about you! I am glad you are going to be able to pick up your son!
