Thank You Butterflies!

I hope everyone is having a great week so far!  We are getting back into the swing of things around here!  Trevor goes back to work tomorrow so I'll be really on my own on "Titanic Tuesday"!  I was so excited to sit down in the craft room this afternoon and get some Thank You cards done.   I can't wait to get back in there and get a few birthday cards done!  Hope you can forgive me for being MIA for the end of 2012!

I decided to keep the cards simple since I needed 6 of them and only had a small block of time to get them done!  I loved the colours from the Pals Paper Arts Challenge this week.  Who doesn't love Melon Mambo, Basic Black and Basic Grey together?!  I mean seriously?!  I popped these colours into this week's Retro Sketches challenge sketch and voila!

I had been itching to get out my honeycomb embossing folder! It can be found in the new spring catalogue!  I love it!  I think you may see it on several upcoming cards (my apologies in advance!).  I'm sure you all knew that I would be buying the new Bitty Butterfly punch!  I mean come on?!  A tiny little butterfly?  How could I resist?!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Basic Grey, Melon Mambo, Whisper White
Stamps: Itty Bitty Banners, Papillon Potpourri
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Bitty Butterfly Punch, Elegant Butterfly Punch, Bitty Banners Framelit Die,  Window Frames Framelits Die, Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

A couple of pictures from our trip to our to visit my parents.  They have a ton of snow!  It was so cold the day I took these!  Caleb is such a great help!  My dad and Caleb worked for hours making a jump for their sliding run!  They sure do love the snow and loved being at Papa and Grannie's house!

Thanks for stopping by!  I will be back on Wednesday with a new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches!


  1. Love this! Sweet and simple - perfect!

  2. I agree this is one fantastic color combo and one fantastic card too!

  3. Love your clean and simple card, Jen! Love the embossed honeycomb background! It really helps to showcase your pretty punched butterfly! Thanks for joining us for the color challenge at PPA! Hope you'll join us later this month for the sketch challenge too!
