Now that I don’t have to maintain Lily Pad Cards, moderate tons of comments there, reply to emails and plan posts I feel more creative all the time. I have time to craft just for fun, to visit your blogs and to leave you comments. And I also have time to play to other challenges than my own! Whooo whooo! So happy about it!

There are some fun challenges going on at the moment.

There is this one by Virginia (see yesterday’s post here), the Lawnscaping challenge and the June contest by Hero Arts.


So I thought I could try and combine all of them in one clean and simple card:


A card with rainbow colors, with butterflies made out of HA dies, a “thinking of you” sentiment and 4 different patterned papers. There you go! One card for all!!!!

Check out the stitches. I used my paper piercer to make 4 holes in each butterfly and then used my white gel pen to draw “stiches”. Learned that trick from Virginia.

I will get back to these challenges with more cards cause I love them!
