I have another card to share today.
I have just been pumping these out, lol.
Actually this one was made last Friday night, during Friday Night Scrapbooking.
I used the same image as I did on yesterdays card.
I love that I can get so much use out of one stamp :)
After stamping the blossom branch I just coloured the flowers.
This butterfly stamp was one that my friend Myra had just purchased.
When I saw this stamp I knew what I wanted to do with it :)
First I stamped it on this dark purple paper.
Then I stamped it again on some pattern papers, and fussy cut just the butterfly out.
Adhered the body of the butterfly on the stamped image and bent up the wings.
Here is the inside of the card.
I had stamped this butterfly for the front of the card but felt like I didn't get a good solid image.
So I decided to use it inside the card...see nothing to waste for me ;)
I had bought this note pad with brown lined paper.
When I saw it I thought it would be perfect for the insides of my cards :)
As much as I love my recipe/index cards, I also like other options ;)
Onto My Day:
Another low key day.
Had the house to myself for a bit today as everyone worked.
Ashley didn't come home for lunch again today :(
I was going through our income taxes to send them out. And like always I got side tracked.
I found some old business paper work that needed to be shredded. So I figured now is as good a time as any.
Well I totally jammed the shredded. I mean so jammed that nothing I did would unjam it. The paper looked compressed into fibers so jammed.
So I tried different methods to unjam it. First reversing it. Then I tried a pulled apart paperclip. I pick for separating nuts (I have no idea where that came from). Finally I used a thin pearing knife.
Now before you all tell me how dangerous this is...I know you have all done the same, lol.
As I was doing this I called my friend but she wasn't in the office so I left a message.
As I was leaving the message, the shredder decided to eat the knife, lol
Like seriously, I forgot to turn off the shredder, lol.
I tried to pull the knife out..but no way was that shredder letting go.
I had to reverse it and it spit the knife out.
All the time fidgeting with the shredder and knife I was laughing while leaving a message on my friends voice mail.
Yup, my life in a nutshell. lol
Ohhhh maybe thats why I had the nut picker thingy, lol.
I hope you all had a creative Tuesday :)
Oh ya and I was able to get the cottage for my friends and my girls getaway for this summer, looking forward to August. Well actually looking forward to spring, as we got snow again today.
