Getting back in the creative groove

Happy Friday people!!  I know I have already apologized for my recent blogging absence - but things for me have been crazy.  I will spare you all the details - but let us just say - my creative juices and spirit were at zero!!  Hopefully this post will be a start to change all that.  So - we are moving on.......

This evening I want to share with you a card I made for a co -worker about 2 to 3 weeks ago as my appreciation and understanding that things don't always stay the same - and that could be a good thing!  I used some patterned paper from BG - Sweet Threads.  I am really sinking my teeth into all the 6 x 6 paper pads out there on the paper crafting market.  They are so perfect for card makers.  My card base is from PTI and the color is Hawaiian Shores.  I love PTI and the weight of their card stock!  I am also into circles right now for some reason.  Depending on how the arrangement of them are, and the colors - the eye really does go right to them - and it is very appealing.  I also punched out some butterflies using my Martha Stewart 3 in 1 butterfly punch.  I glued some of my circles directly on my card base and some I popped up with dimensionals or pop dots.  My sentiment comes from SU! "Flight of the butterfly".

To finish off my card, I added some bakers twine and a button from BG.  I will be back in a few days if not sooner with another creation.  Thanks for stopping in!!
