TSG Blog Hop (and Post #200!)!!

What better way to celebrate my 200th blog post than with a blog hop??? This is the first official There She Goes Design Team Blog Hop, and I'm SOOOO excited that the set I was given to "highlight" for all y'all is BUTTERFLY HAPPINESS!

We were also asked by Holly (McMillen - aka Toy on SCS) to use a famous quote as inspiration (she is the genius who came up with the blog hop idea in the first place!). My quote is from Roy Rogers:

"What's a butterfly garden without butterflies?"

So here is my garden of butterflies for you!! This is the first set I got from Jessica waaaayyyy back last fall (late summer??)! You KNOW how I am about butterflies, right??? I love all the beautiful images in this set, ESPECIALLY (believe it or not) the leaf vine! I have used that baby so many times I can hardly count 'em!

And also (believe it or not!) this has NOTHING to do with my "Follow the Butterflies" challenge, either!! (Since I have already used this set for the challenge, it is automatically DQ'd!!)!

Anyway, to continue on to the next stop of our terrific team's blog hop, take a gander at what Faith has created here:

Stampin' With Markie's Mom

Have a happy, sunshine-y day (as this card makes me think, should I say DREAM?, or SPRING!!!)!!

(BTW, if you would like to start at the beginning of our Blog Hop . . . check out Jessica's blog HERE!)

Stamps: Butterfly Happiness by There She Goes
Paper: Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Old Olive, Whisper White

COOLIO AFTERTHOUGHT!! After I posted this card, I went and looked at my blog and noticed that it is perfectly color-coordinated with my blog overall!! How cool!! What a great way to highlight my 200th, eh???
