Thinking back when....

Hi all- I wanted to pop in and share another creation - and also share with you that today is my 4th wedding anniversary!  I was thinking back today 4 yrs. ago at different times where I was - and what I was doing before Chris and I said our " I do's".  That day was the happiest day of my life.  I found my soul mate, and my best friend.  The best part is that we get closer each and every year.  I love him more and more every day, and the great thing was - I knew how I felt about him the moment I laid eyes on him Dec 13, 2003 - our first date!  It was meant to be for sure!

Today I thought I would share my "Just because" card I made for a co worker.  Bonnie is pretty new to my dept. at work - and you could tell she was a little overwhelmed with everything that she has to learn, and I made her this card to perk her up - and also because I found out from her she liked butterflies like I do!  So - I knew I had bought this new "Flower butterfly" stamp.  That isn't the name - just what I am calling it.  I love browns and blues together!

I used some pattern paper from that same pad I used a couple of posts ago from MM called "Just Chillin" - embossed a piece of scrap blue paper with one of my cuttlebug folders, and added some chocolate ribbon from PTI.   I stamped the butterfly flower image on this scallop die cut, colored it with some copics, and added some gold stickles to make it pop!  I also added an epoxy brad in the middle that really went well with all the colors.

Before I go - I posted on one of the forums at Two Peas in a bucket if anyone new where I could find one of the Dark Pink Cuttlebug machines.  They were sold exclusively thru HSN last year - and since my V2 machine broke - I am looking to replace it.  If any of you crafters know where I could get one from someone that might be selling theirs - PLEASE contact me!!  I want one really bad!!! 

Thanks everyone!!  Night!!
Stay Inspired!,

    @Rachel - I don't know the name of the folder because I bought the new version of the cuttlebug machine and it came with the machine wrapped in thin plastic. It didn't have a name. So sorry! :o( Thanks for your well wishes for my anniversary!
