A Spoon full of Butterflies!

Yes, the theme for today's Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge is Butterflies! I had so many stamps that have butterflies, and this one just was Hee-ing and Haw-ing to be used. The image actually does have a butterfly in it... LOL I just covered it up with one of my cut out butterflies -

So I colored up my Donkey... and yes this little Alota Rubberstamp image set is called "Michelle's Sweet Little Donkeys", is colored with my Copics, then highlighted with my white gel pen. The sky is chalk.
I started with a white card stock for the base, then used papers from DCWV, Garden Party stack. Love the colors and when I saw the butterflies I knew that was the paper I had to use. The bottom of the card is a border cut off of one paper, the Butterflies are from a pattern paper with lots of large butterflies off of it. I just cut out two of them. I matted my image with the same paper as my background paper, then used my Fiskar's Apron Lace Border punch and white card stock to create a lace border.

The sentiment "Donkey Hugs" is from the Alota set - wonderful sentiment I think ;0). I inked the edges of the sentiment.

I gel pen stitched the edges of the card. And take a close up look at that butterfly - Love it when the paper has the glitter - and the colors are just yummy -

Hope you will take a moment and visit A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge and see all the DT work. Really pretty cards this week! And this weeks Guest DT is Jessica Diedrich. My Buddy and fellow Dt from Stampavie and Club Anya! Love her stuff... heck just love her! :0)

Well Hubby is off again today - that usually means very little computer time for me. Busy day planned - he is going to mow more, and we are planning to wean Freddie and Pavo today... that means lots of "talking" between the pens. Darlene usually really gets upset when we take her babies from her - cries for a day or so. Freddie is Bella's first baby so we don't know how she will react.... But it is time, they are too old to be with their Mommas and so into the youth pen they will go - I'll let you know tomorrow how noisy it ended up around here today - :0)

Have a great Tuesday!

HUGS and-
