2013 Artisan Finalist Blog Hop - Day 5

Today we are "officially" half way through sharing our Artisan entries!! It's been so much fun seeing all the wonderful creations done by my blog hop buddies ... and I have REALLY appreciated your comments and emails. Ya pretty much have been makin' my week a happy place!! (Which is a GOOD thing because starting on Monday and ending - thankfully - this afternoon I had 150 skin-test patches TAPED to my BACK!! I know, I know ... TMI ... we're just trying to figure out WHAT ingredient in SUNSCREEN I am allergic to!! ICK!!)

Card #4 ... this is one big ol' butterfly!! This card looked WAY better in my head!!! And it actually looks kinda fun and sparkly in PERSON ... just wasn't QUITE what I had envisioned ... but I enjoyed trying to do something a LITTLE big different with this image ... so there ya have it! I have been affectionately referring to this stamp as "Mothra" ... and it has officially made me feel OLD because too many of my friends have NO IDEA what that means!! (If you don't either, just "Google" it ... sigh ...)

This is great! I love how you used the swallowtail stamp. I never would have thought to have used it that way.
