You Still Give Me Butterflies....

Hi all!

I am back from my trip to Alaska and it was AMAZING!!!!!!! I had a fabulous time with my Mom and my sister. Absolutely gorgeous scenery, we saw Mendenhall Glacier and the colors of blue in this glacier are indescribably beautiful; we saw so many waterfalls I lost count; we took a trip to the Misty Fjords and it was fantastic; Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway are just wonderful towns.
Then the wildlife... Bears, Bald Eagles a plenty, Mountain Goats; Seals, Porpoises and to top it off the Humpback Whales!!! All I can say is I want to go back and if you ever get the chance I highly recommend you go.

I will be trying to play a little catch up with all your blogs this week, I am sure I have missed some amazing creations.

My project for today is a card I made for Operation Write Home using their sketch. Pretty simple to make with just some cuts of pattern papers and some stickers.


Here is their sketch:



Supplies used: cardstock - tan, white; patterned paper - Brilliance from Hello Sunshine by American Crafts; stickers - Glitzers Garden by Glitz; stamp from "With Love" set by Whimsical Designs; ink Tuxedo Black by Memento.

You stated that your card was a simple one but while that may be true it is also simply beautiful !! Everything is so pretty-the butterflies, the colors, the embellishments and last, but not least, the sentiment. I am sure it will be sent joyfully and received joyfully ! Excellent Job !!

So glad you had a wonderful trip with your sister and Mom. Alaska is GORGEOUS!!! I actually lived in Alaska for 4 yrs and my oldest son was born there. My Husband was in the Air Force so it was an awesome opportunity to travel it. Loved it and the wild life is AMAZING!!!

While your card has alot going for it...what really struck me is your use of the corner punch and how well that worked with the overall design...I def need to remember that! TFS!!!
