Birthday Butterflies

 Hello and welcome crafty friends!
I'm popping in (at the last minute) with
a card I made for a couple challenges:

(This post contains affiliate links, at no additional cost to you!)

I used the Shower of Flutters stencil and blended three shades of
magenta from bottom left to almost top right, leaving some
white space at the corner. Using images from the
Trendy Butterflies stamp set, I randomly stamped over the
outlines of some of the butterflies. I placed the stencil back over
the images and splattered (too much!) black paint over the panel.
I trimmed the panel using the Crazy Double Running Stitch die
in the largest size. I then die cut twice, the Happy Birthday from
the Everyday Sentiments die set, stacked and glued to the card.

This card is much more vibrant in real life, but the day I
took the pictures, it was very overcast. Ugh!
Well, that's it for now. Thank you for
visiting, and I hope that you have a great
rest of your day!

Hello and welcome crafty peeps.
On July 21, 2022, we lost our dear sister Lindsey.
To say that we miss her tremendously, not to mention her fun, 
snarky sense of humor would be an understatement.

In her honor, for the new challenge at the
we invite you to create a project that was inspired

Some of you may have known that Lindsey and I shared a love
for the show, Dr. Who, especially the 10th Doctor, played by David Tennant.
For my card, I used papers with a galaxy/star theme. I printed
the TARDIS (free clipart) and colored it with spectrum noir markers.
The sentiment is a quote by the 10th Doctor, also printed out.
 I thought it also tied in with Lindsey's love of reading.

In her honor, we'd love to see 
your projects that were inspired by Lindsey. 
(Please make sure that you let us know what it is, as it
may not be obvious).  Clicking on her name above will take you
to her blog, where you can view it for inspiration.

Edna and the Sisterhood send our love to her family, friends,
and crafty friends worldwide.
