I mentioned the other day that I created a card for the Stamping 411 Blog challenge last week and missed the entry cutoff.  So I took the same materials for that card and turned it into a card using this weeks challenge.  I thought I would share this with you because I thought it was interesting to see how the same set of materials can make two different cards.

So here was the sketch for last week and the card I created:

stamp411-ssc107Flight-of-the-Butterfly Supplies include – Flight of the Butterfly stamp set; Butterfly Punch; Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper; Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry, and Melon Mambo card stock and classic ink; Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Ribbon; Big Shot die-cut machine and Perfect Details Texture Plate.

It doesn’t quite look like the sketch since my image was bigger and I moved it higher because I wanted it over my designer paper – the only dimensions I changed from my first card was cutting the rectangles slightly smaller so that I had room for the knot on the left side.

This was my swap card at our STARZ group meeting on Saturday night and I’ll be bringing some of these to convention to swap also.  If you are a demo and will be at convention I hope you will swap with me and say “Hi” – I would love to meet you.

Today is Ryan’s 13th birthday!  Yes, I officially have 3 teenage boys!  What is a mom to do……

Well I have to go frost cupcakes for him to take to tennis camp.  And then get ready for his birthday dinner and make him a card – which I will post later.  His birthday balloon is already in his room.  This is a tradition I have been doing for 17 years now – from Kyle’s first birthday. When they wake up on the morning of their birthday they have a special balloon in their room.  A few times I have had to run out late at night to go get one.  When they were little it was from the “balloon fairy” – but I’m quite sure they figured out it was really from mom.  The trick will be next year when Kyle goes off to college – how to get one into his dorm room – I guess I’ll have to get to know his room mate and have him do it for me.

Have a great day!
