~For Someone Special-Mother's Day


Time for another fun challenge over at Di's Digis!  This week we are asking to see your Flowers Everywhere creations and what a perfect time- Mother's Day is right around the corner:-)



My card features the super cute image from Di's shop called For Someone Special and it is for someone special indeed-my mom.   I have used some older Echo Park pattern papers and some gorgeous news papers from Paper Garden.  Speaking of Paper Garden, I was asked to join a contest for Mother's Days card and this is my card I have entered with and used some of the gorgeous papers I was sent in a sample pack, so I would love it if you could pop over here-Paper-Garden's Mother's Day Card Contest and vote for my card (Card #14)....pretty please:-)  Paper Garden is a fabulous Canadian company and their products are wonderful.  The papers I have used are: Stardream Aquamarine, Essie Pearlized White and Stardream Kunzite.

Be sure to also head on over to the Di's Digi Challenge blog to see the gorgeous creations from my team mates and to enter for your chance to win a super fun prize!  You can also win digis just for using one of Di's images too, so why not!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and a Happy Mother's Day to all the mommas out there!

~Butterfly Fairy


Happy Weekend!  We get a long weekend here as the kids had no school on Friday or tomorrow so it has been nice!  Got a chance to have a few good sleep in days, got caught up on laundry and housework-yes as fun as that is, but necessary right??  Anyway, I have a card to share with you to day that is for our new challenge over at Di's Digis.  The challenge this time around is to use pastel colors. 



Now this one certainly was  challenge for me.  I generally don't use pastel much but found this older Echo Park paper and thought it fit the bill perfectly!   The image is a cute new one called Butterfly Fairy and I have used the current sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesdays 2 for my layout.  

Our wonderful sponsor this time around is The Cutting Cafe and the prize is 3 items of choice from the shop.  Be sure to pop by the challenge blog to see the gorgeous creations from my team mates and then enter your card as well!

Have a super week everyone and thanks for stopping by!
