Thinking of You

This is so not like me!! TWO cards in one day...YIKES!! My husband is away tonight--it's O.K. if we go to bed with stamping stuff EVERYWHERE!! (Don't tell!)

I really wanted to get this done for Melissa Phillips' latest photo challenge...
Ain't it purdy?! It's from Leslie's Creative Mint. Had to get that butterfly in there...and some spring flowers...

I've used some Papertrey paper, stamps and dies...and some other pretty odds & ends, too. The sentiment is from Waltzing Mouse. I have distressed all the edges, which is part of Papertrey's Make It Monday Challenge. I always like that look, and I almost always ink my edges, but for some reason, I don't usually take the time to distress them. I just used my kids Fiskars (open) to do it. Thought they might be less likely to take off a finger than all my sharp little paper scissors. Anyway...here it is...


She's kinda tall and slender...about 6 1/4" x 3 1/4", I think. I like that size and shape for some reason.

Hope you enjoyed the card...I really enjoyed the challenge!!

Thanks again for stopping today!!
