Isn't it May? Which means that...


...Spring is here!!! (Well..sort of.) ;) Hi everyone, I hope you are all keeping dry/warm/safe from all this crazy weather. Since it doesn't look like May out my window, I thought I would create something that closely resembled it.
Aren't those the sweetest monarchs? It is a new image from The Digi Shack. I colored in a butterfly, then realized that she needed a partner to flutter about with. I had this fun scrap piece of b/w DP but it was too busy for the outside of the card. I decided to decorate the inside (a fabulous addition that so many crafters do - excluding me) and let it peek out a bit. Nothing fancy at all with this card, I think it took me about 10 minutes to make, 5 of those minutes spent looking for that love brad. haha!
Now pay attention: All week long Toni will be revealing her new lineup of stamps in her shoppe. Oh my word, you don't want to miss the fun things happening this week over there. Here's a few hints for what to expect tomorrow: grab a flower lei, put your hands on your hips, bend your knees. Now wait for the music. haha! It will be worth it, I promise, because the prizes that she's offering is so generous!
Okay, I am going to run some errands, then grab coffee and donuts and hang out at a friend's house this morning. Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone!
*Love and Aloha*
