I've got two little "sweet'um"s (not the Muppet one! ;)) today for ya...made with that adorable Cosmo Cricket line, "Girl Friday". This paper is IDEAL for girls birthdays, tea parties, or for anything vintage girly. I don't like using just "girly" because that makes me think hot pink and purple; colors that just blast in your face. These colors are so sweet and lovely...

I have wanted this paper for a long time, and I finally got it on Tuesday, scoring a fantastic deal: the Cosmo Cricket "Everafter and "Girl Friday" double deck at Michaels, usually twenty bucks each, I got two for ten!
Hey, who doesn't like saving money on scrapping supplies? ;)

Now that I'm finished with that little happy dance, here is a card is for Caardvarks sketch,

Used my Martha Stewart stamp set that I got for Christmas - I believe there are punches to go with these butterflies, but I can't be sure.

Guess what? I went ahead and got an Etsy shop! Well, I'm under 18, so it's a sister shop with my (duh!) sister who knits...here it is...let me know what you think, please? I listed the first butterfly card here. So, feel free to break the news to me if I'm doing something horribly wrong. ;) And for those who know about the Etsy teams, could you help me on that, because I'm trying to figure out what exactly you do in one of them, but I can't find any link on the site that is clear on that subject.

Anywho, these cards were inspired by Lucy Abrams, who makes beautiful cards with fantastic butterflies...she also makes fantastic cards with Nestabilities; she inspired me to buy them!

Thanks for poppin' by!
