Butterfly Kisses . . .

Hello Again My Friends!
Sorry for yet another post in the same day but what can I say?  I'm on a roll and lovin' it!   These 'spurts' don't happen often and I have to keep the creative juices flowing when they do!!!
I do hope you understand! 
At my age, a girl's gotta do - what a girl's gotta do!  LOL!

As you saw in my earlier post, I do enjoy a good sketch challenge!  And, I recently was introduced to an awesome one at the Cardabilities Sketch Blog.  
Here's the new sketch to create with . . .


And, here is my creation . . .

(View of the INSIDE)

I must admit these sketches are really making me THINK and be more creative!
I'm very fortunate to have all the wonderful crafting goodies I have available to me ... so many in fact, that sometimes I neglect (or just don't have enough hours in a day) to blow the dust off and use them.

Today, I did just that!  
Blew the dust off of my stencils and got creative!
As you see, not only on the front of my card, but on the inside panel as well!
LOVE when I finish a card inside & out!!

I even used a couple dies that had never been die cut yet!  OMG!  
This pretty 2 piece Impression Obsession 'Fancy Butterfly' die set that I've had for ages.
And, hiding under the Butterfly Kisses panel, the Spellbinder 'Wonderful Locket' die set.

Here are a few other challenges I'd love to share this creation with:
Brown Sugar Challenge - Birthday for a Girl
Sister Act Challenge #89 - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by and for all your kind words of encouragement!
I truly love what I'm doing (now that I'm retired) and so blessed to be able to share it with all of you out there in blogland!  Have a FABULOUS weekend!!
As always . . .
