I am having a lot of fun these days because I have Fall break from school and actually have time to play.  Yesterday I went up into the mountains to visit my friend, Bonnie, and we played all day.  She had not seen a lot of my new toys from convention so we did a lot of sharing.  I had seen a new type of card called a Funky Fold Card at Sweeet Designs By Cheryl and so we decided to see if we could make one.  We had so much fun with it. 

Bonnie shared some very precious butterfly paper that she had been saving for a special card.  We used some of the same ideas and then went our seperate ways to create our own version.  I love this look!!

I used a new Nellie Snellen die to cut the butterfly borders on each side of the card.  I used a new MS border/corner punch for the bottom and also the inside.  The butterfly is a Spellbinder die, layered and embossed, and the saying is from JustRite, cut out with oval Nesties.

I concentrated on the butterflies on this card for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.   I love the theme, BFF - Buttons, Butterflies, and Friend(ship).  I am so lucky to have so many wonderful friends.

Cute Card Thursday had the them of "What's Buggin You" so I used butterflies for this, also.

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC89) has the challenge to make the sentiment the focus.

Thank you, Bonnie, for letting me use some of your very special paper and an absolutely wonderful day!!

Hi there,
Beautiful card! I thought I'd hop over to visit you as we share the same name! And also, I wanted to let you know, you've won the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge (but they've put the wrong link under your name so you might want to get in touch with them about that). Congrats!!! Marie x
