Butterfly Scraps...More My Time Made Easy 25

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, January 6, 2010 @ 10:00 PM |

Hello Friends! This is going to be a short & sweet post, I promise! I had some "me" time today so I took advantage & made a card to share with you more of the new My Time Made Easy LLC © Pretty Impressions: All A Flutter & All A Flutter Sentiments stamp sets, My Time Made Easy LLC © Pretty Printables: Fluttering By & Shutt-erfly.

Lauren & Tracey will be sharing some incredible projects today, so please be sure to stop by & show them some love!

Here is my Butterfly card made from scraps:
The My Time Made Easy LLC © Pretty Impressions: All A Flutter Sentiments stamp set is full of so many beautiful sayings, making it difficult to just choose one! I am super happy with the one I chose :) If you click the picture, it will enlarge & you will be able to read the sentiment in its entirety.

You may have noticed I have been creating many projects using the beautiful My Time Made Easy LLC © Pretty Printables: Fluttering By & Shutt-erfly. As like most of you, I hoard my scraps!! If I can squeeze at least 1 more flower from a piece of leftover cs, I save it!!! I made this card from those left over pieces of gorgeous cs that I just didn't have the heart to toss! I stitched several pieces of scraps together from my previous projects using My Time Made Easy LLC © Pretty Printables: Fluttering By & Shutt-erfly. I would like to give a BIG shout out to my fellow Just Us Girls DT member, Kristin! In case you haven't heard the news, Kristin has been chosen to join the Color Throwdown DT! Yeah!! Way to go :) It just so happens that Lauren is sponsoring this week's CTD74 & has inspired the palette for this week's color inspiration! So of course, I showed my love & support for my both of my sweet friends & played along! Funny thing is, I met BOTH Lauren & Kristin through Lauren's prior My Time To Create challenges :) I hope to meet many more wonderful people through upcoming challenges ;) Please be sure to visit Lauren, Kristin & ALL the girls at the Color Throwdown for amazing inspiration!

To make the sweet little butterfly embellishment, I inked up the solid "outline" butterfly image from the MTME © All A Flutter set with SU Chocolate Chip ink & stamped it on a scrap piece of the MTME © Shutt-erfly Pink Dot digi paper x 2 then cut it out & adhered it to my card using a brad. I gave it some antennae from twine in my stash! The left upper flower was made from the MTME © Fluttering-By Brown Definitions paper layered x 4 & the mid to left lower flower was made from several layers using a mix of both MTME © Fluttering-By MTME © Shutt-erfly scraps. I think this qualifies for Nichole's Scrap-tastic challenge :)

Sort of short & sweet right? I had so much to share :) Thanks for looking & remember if you create something, anything using these products, please share! I will be back tomorrow to share a few more treats :) Be Sweet!
