Fluttering by with Dynamic Duos

Hi again.  That UFO box of mine is getting a workout.  It's really fun to find items that work for a challenge card.  When I saw the Dynamic Duos challenge, I thought about these leaves that I had stamped a while back.  (Probably at least a year ago.) They didn't work for what I wanted that day and got tossed in the box.



Don't these pieces work perfectly for this challenge? I love it when that happens!


The butterfly was from a friend's punch.  She brought it for Stamp and Share and I punched a few of these beauties before she left.  I hadn't found just the right image to put them on until now.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Growing Green (retired), Blooming with Kindness
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Paper:  Acrylic Pad, Basic Black
Other:  Butterfly Punch (?)

Your response to my thoughts on blogging yesterday are heartwarming!  I'm not going to give up entirely and in a few months when the boys are in kindergarten and preschool, I'll be back full steam ahead.  Honestly, it's so hard to cut back. Making cards helps keep my sanity and I love to share and see what you are doing too.  It's hard to cut back on what you love.  I'll be around.  Thanks for the love!

I'm so glad you could stop by.

Enjoy!

Beautiful Bonnie, love your CAS scene and the black butterfly. Your cards are always so fresh. I have this punch but not sure where it is. I think MS?

Marisa said...

Gorgeous CAS card, BOnnie!! Love it.

I have the b'fly punch, and it's by Martha Stewart. Your cards are beautiful, Bonnie. As for Stamp and Share, I love doing that here, too. I didn't know there was a name for it, though!

The butterfly punch is Martha Stewart (I have it.) Funny you should mention sanity... When people ask me if making cards saves money, I tell them (after I stop laughing) " No, but it's cheaper than therapy."
