Butterflies and Glitter

Thanks to all my stamping buddies and PTI pals for stopping by, leaving comments and sending encouraging messages. Your support is very much appreciated. Yesterday, Charlie and I were both off work and took in a lot of the free Olympic activities throughout the city. Took lots of pictures, laughed a lot, met some nice people and had a glorious day. But those pictures are for another post (Jeannie 0_o). Here are a few more cards from the "archives".

This is the card I made for SIL's birthday last year. Tri-folded, nestabilities, and glittered butterflies. I think the verbage is Stampin' Up but the Chinese calligraphy is from a set I've had for a really long time and I don't know the manufacturer. Next...

A more recent card, glitter free, that I made on special request for one of Charlie's co-workers who landed a promotion. Pretty simple lay-out. The Chinese character is a Dream Weaver Stencil and I used their crackle-paste technique and coloured with stipple brushes and chalk and pigment inks. And lastly...

A card I made for no reason whatsoever that has a glittered butterfly. Sigh. Using up the larger pieces of scraps from my bin and the last of a ribbon sampler.

Well, on review, I would have to say that I got my monies worth on that Cuttlebug die-cut/embossing folder. I should probably put it away for a while.

Okay, this is my last picture for this post. This is Olive. My sister's dog. We think she's a shitzhu/poodle cross (sorry 'bout the spelling). We love her. She's a great dog with a quirky personality. Since I don't have a dog of my own, yet, I have to live vicariously through Olive and heaven bless her she lets me...

Craft-on everyone!
