Great Friend

Good morning everyone! What a beautiful Saturday morning it is here in Western Colorado! We have two soccer games today. This is the last day for the soccer season. Then next Saturday and Sunday is the tournament. Then we will just have to wait and see if Nick makes the cut to the new academy team. He has a lot of great competition!

Today's card is one that I had sketched out from somewhere. It does look different than I had originally sketched but I really like the way it turned out. I inked up the whole greeting in Kiwi Kiss but then used the Basic Black marker to ink up the 'friend' part of the greeting before stamping. The butterfly in this set does not come with antenna. I had seen the idea of giving the butterfly antenna using the stem of the leaf from this set. So, I cut out two stems from the leaf and glued them to the back of the butterfly and you get antenna!! I thought it was pretty clever! However, if you are not inclined to want to cut out that tiny leaf stem, the butterfly looks just fabulous without antenna! I hope you are all inspired today! Have a great weekend!
