Happy Fiday!!!!

Wow! I just spent 3 hours on eBay looking at children/youth books for our library, we have a tiny budget so I need a lot of bang for my buck! I love children books so much more than most adult fiction mostly for the simple fact they have illustrations!  Using this weeks sketch courtesy of  Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge,
 I created a card using Lori Boyds Butterfly image from her Lolllipops Series.  I just love the cute wings,  (Aly's Sunday Sketch) & (Sentimental Sundays)don't you? Lori ever so generously gifted these to me Thank you!!! I followed along with the color challenge at Lori Designs Challenges to celebrate her first challenge.



   Happily last week I got my mega dp supply in consisting of lots of yummy and new(Polly Craft Challenges)and Dotty (Incy Wincy) & Spotty (Basic Grey Challenges) BG and stupendous Cosmo Cricket life is amazing! This Olivia paper pad by BG works perfectly for this challenge!


Isn't that butterfly a real Cutie-Patootie?(Paper Play) (Pile It On) perfect for a child (One Stop Craft)? I think so! I Embossed (Some Odd Girl)my larger Die-Cut (Stampin' B's)circle and then sanded it for a touch of Distressing (Do You Stack Up)
I have but a few of those Glittered (Stampavie & More)brads left ...you will be missed! 
I tried to create my challenge list with a bit more pizazz, does it work? Or, simply make you dizzy!

I would like to let you know I am doing a tutorial on a technique to give those buttons a face lift tomorrow so be sure to stop by here or over to Sketches In Thyme for the Sassy Saturday's Tips Tricks & Tutorials.
