Butterfly Birthday – LSC213

Well, we’re back from our mini vacation and glad to be home.  We have been visiting our sons in Nashville and Atlanta and had a great time.  It rained everyday in Atlanta so we had to limit our sight-seeing, but did get to visit The Carter Center- President Carter’s Library and Museum and enjoyed it very much.  We hope to be able to visit all the Presidential Libraries in the next couple of years.  We went to President Reagan’s Library in Simi Valley, CA last year and hope to get to the Clinton Library in Little Rock in a month or so.  It’s pretty thrilling to see how these remarkable men lived.

When I checked the SCS challenges I missed, I knew I had to catch up on a few.  I am starting with the Limited Supplies because we were to use Black and White only on our card, and as you know, these are my favorites.  And, I did get to a LSS in Atlanta and was able to find a set I have been wanting- Inkadinkado’s Patterned Bugs and thought the butterflies in flight image would be perfect for my card.  It is similar to the birds in flight image from the Birds Galore set which I also love.

It’s a real simple card, but I had a little trouble stamping the image because I don’t have a big acrylic block.  So I took a CD case apart and used the clear top and it turned out pretty good.  I also used a couple of new MS punches I picked up at Wal-Mart in Atlanta.  Hope you like it!

You Rock!!! My First ATC – WT208

Greetings to all!  I was so excited to see the Ways to Use It challenge on SCS today which is to make an Artist Trading Card or ATC.  ATC’s are 2 1/2 X 3 1/2 inches and are perfect for little tags, cards or for trading your work with other crafters.  Here’s my first effort and I am now addicted!  You can make 10 card bases from one sheet of cardstock and form a little production line on your table and in no time your project is done.  Check this link for the cutting instructions.

My First ATCMy great friend Lisa loaned me this cute little set – thanks Lisa! Isn’t that puppy precious?

Hope your week has been fun. 

Many Blessings,

Diane
