Cardabilities #21

Good day to you all out there! Well, another Cardabilities challenge has come around and now its time to share! Here is sketch #21:

Here is my take on it:
I got to use some new die cuts that have been waiting to get used. Lets be honest, with the holidays and back to back family visits plus just life happening, I have NOT been crafting. This was a good chance to get it going again. It was a lot of fun and I like how it turned out. I even got to send it out to a friend right away which always feels good. I don't like making a card and then putting in a pile of other cards that just collect dust. What about you??

I took some old tissue paper that I had sitting around and folded it up a few times and then cut my butterfly out of it. It really adds a lot of dimension and flounce to it! Other stamps are Papertrey Ink and the printed paper medallion is Cosmo Cricket.

This marks the middle of the longest month of the year, and it feels good to have it moving! It has been so bitter cold and of course you can't forget the two huge snow storms that showed us what they were made of. I think they were calling this last one a Snow Bomb? Well, what will they come up with next?

Anyway, what are you all up to this holiday weekend? We have been discussing Martin Luther King Jr. a lot this week and I feel so grateful for visionary people who help make this world a better place. What a wonderful person to celebrate this week.

Have a happy weekend!
