Strawberry Slush Butterfly

Hello & Happy Tuesday!

Hope you've all been enjoying the spring weather we've been having!
Here in PA it got to 83 degrees on Easter Sunday. I was almost ready to throw in the towel and ask for the AC to get put in the window but I managed. Yesterday it cooled down nicely and I decided to go down to my stamp room and do some rearranging and throwing old stuff away. I have a gallon size ziplock bag that is filled with buttons that are in my stash. I don't use them on cards much anymore because of the extra cost in mailing them. I may try to find a new home for them.

Anyways, today I am going to spend the afternoon in my stamp room again. I need to find a better way to store all my 12 x 12 DSP packs. I have tons since I started stamping in 2001. I have 12 x 12 paper holders that I picked up at AC Moore many years ago but they hold all my non SU dsp's and 12 x 12 cardstocks. I really have way toooo much paper! 
How do you store your 12 x 12 designer series papers?

So, today I have a quick card to share that I made last week for my customer.
She wanted something springy and for a young lady who was celebrating a birthday.

Since I was on a roll with using my Bold Butterfly Framelits I had to use them again for this card.
Of course all these colors are now retired In Colors but since I still have tons of it in my stash I will continue to use it.

Happy Birthday Card:

Stamps: Crazy About You
Ink: Strawberry Slush
Cardstock: Strawberry Slush, Mossy Meadow, Whisper White, All Abloom DSP
Accessories: Bold Butterfly Framlits, Butterfly Embossing Folder, Lg Oval & Scallop Circle Punches, Strawberry Slush Thick Twine, White Pearls, Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

I even used the Butterfly Embossing Folder on the white panel even though it's hard to see on the photo's. I really need to use this one more often. So pretty!


My thoughts today....

That's all for me today!
My craft room awaits!

Thanks for stopping by & have a terrific day!
