Hi everyone!
I'm back to blogging again, and had a wonderful Christmas. I hope you all did too!

I had to laugh when I saw the challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper..."anything BUT Christmas...I'm done with the holidays!"

I am totally opposite. That is NEVER the case for me. As I have said many times before, I LOVE Christmas! I collect more Christmas stamps and dies then anything else.( And I do make Christmas cards all year long.) The saddest day is always the day I take down the tree and decorations. But that won't be for awhile yet for me.... I'm still sitting here blogging away with my Christmas tree lights on and enjoying every minute!

BUT... I dug around and found this butterfly card to share today, and it should fit the bill for the SIP challenge!

I started out with MFT blueprints #20, which is hard for me NOT too use, I like it so much. The butterfly, leaves and flourish are from Memory Box, and the circle from Lil Inker. 

I added a bit of Wink to the butterfly.

I'm entering this at:

SIP Challenge 28 - No Christmas 800

Pixies Snippets Playground (Snippets for my butterfly)

Pixies Crafty Workshop

Have a great day!

Really beautiful card Laurie! LOVE th colours and what a fabulous butterfly too.

I'm so with you about feeling sad when it's time to take the Christmas decorations down. I hear of people dismantling everything practically the day after Christmas Day itself and feel really sorry for them :(
