Thoughts of Butterflies

Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all having a great week! The weather here in Wisconsin is still mighty chilly (although they are forecasting a heat wave of 40 degrees this weekend). As most of you know, a few weeks ago I started working part-time at the university. Due to a lack of affordable parking on campus, I've been riding the city bus. Yesterday morning as I stood in the dark, sub-zero degree weather at 5:45am waiting for the bus, all I could think about was summer and butterflies. There is just something about butterflies that makes me feel happy (and believe me, I needed every happy thought I could muster up while I was standing there freezing my butt off). I know I've posted about my love of the DRS Designs butterfly stamps before but I just can't help but say it again. DRS Designs has a HUGE selection of gorgeous butterfly stamps. I love them all! You can find them all in the "Wild Things" catagory on the website. Here is a card I made using one of my favorite DRS butterfly stamps:

Supplies used: Stamps from DRS Designs, SU and Bazzill CS, Basic Grey DP, Me and My Big Ideas self adhesive rhinestons, glitter.

The layout is sketch # 100 from CPS and the colors came from last week's Color Throwdown Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a great day!

Beautiful card Heather :)

Funny your heatwave of 40 (degrees fahrenheit) would be much more favourable than our heatwave of 40 (degrees celsius!)

Keep dreaming butterflies - makes your day go faster :)
