Butterflies in Flight

Hello friends and Happy Weekend to you!!

Yesterday I spotted the pile of 'stackables' I've had on the shelf for a VERY long time and thought it was about time I did something with them.  As mentioned in my last post, I have a couple of Fall Shows coming up (hopefully) and I'm ALWAYS in need of LOTS of birthday cards so here's what I've come up with to share with you today.

This particular package of stackables is from the Dufex Craft Products company.
I was going to share their website but I see it's no longer available ... sorry ... see, told you I've had these for a VERY long time!  LOL   

For this first card I've simply made a swiss dot embossed background and add the Tutti Designs Happy Birthday dies sentiment .


Here's card #2 created from the same sheet.  I don't have the coordinating extra butterflies on this one ... they were already popped out of the sheet so I guess somewhere along the line I've used them on another project.

I have used a couple more VERY old item to embellish my card and that is the Martha Stewart Trellis punch and the 3-in-1 butterfly punch.  I've used the same Tutti Designs Happy Birthday dies for the sentiment.

Here are a few challenges I'd like to share in:

Your Next Stamp Challenge #168 - Birthdays
2 Crafty Critter Crazies Challenge #54 (LAST CHALLENGE) - ATG Critters (butterflies)
A Bit More Time to Craft Challenge #145 - ATG (ends 10/14)
Creative Sketchy Girls Challenge #63 - Butterflies
Mod Squad Challenge - Butterflies
Creative Knockouts Challenge #419 - Wings & Things

  Well, that's it for me today!
Lots to do so I'd best get busy!

Enjoy your weekend, and PLEASE stay healthy & happy!
We're only given one life ... make each day count!  

As always,
