No more winter

I have had it with winter. It is colder today than yesterday. How is that possible? Once again we are trapped in the house. This is day 4. Must. Go. Out. Soon! :)
So, in protest, I made a spring card. I love these butterfly stamps from Stampendous and the Sugared papers from Basic Grey.

I wish the sparkle showed up better. The whole butterfly was accented with my Spica Glitter pen. She was colored in with Copics.
Supplies:
Patterned paper-Basic Grey (Sugared)
Stamps-Stampendous (Flutterfly Friends)
Ink-Memento (Tuxedo Black), Versamark (Watermark)
Ribbon-SEI (Dill Collection)
Cardstock-Papertrey Ink (Kraft, Lavendar Moon, Ripe Avocado)
Tools-Nestabilities, Copics, Spica Glitter Pen, Fiskars Threading Water Border Punch

thanks for stopping by!

ME. TOO.

Seriously, your card is a BEAUTIFUL reminder that it won't always be so cold that the snot in our nose freezes:). Ok, sorry about that last line...it just slipped out unexpectedly, which could be a direct result of the impact this freezing cold weather is having on me.

Wishing you lots of hot chocolate and blankets! Stay warm!

Hugs,
Amy

Very cute, Kim! Sorry to hear you are snowed in (or whatever). We are supposed to get a little teeny tiny bit today but it will turn to rain...darn! I want a white Christmas! Anyway, this little image is adorable and I can see enough of the glitter to know it is even cuter IRL!

Gorgeousness!! Your card warms me right up! And sorry about the sending the storm your way. We are bloody freezing here. And the roads are terrible. It took me 20 mins to drive 3kms to work. And no, I don't walk...Haha!!
