Cure For The Monday Blues...on Thursday

When I joined the Moxie Fab Thanks Blog Hop in November of last year, I came to know a blogger named Taheerah just a bit better.  Her creations are so whimsical, and I follow her on Facebook.  Recently, she created a new challenge called Cure For The Monday Blues.  I'm playing in the second challenge, and I'll share the inspiration pic in just a moment.



I created a butterfly-ful baby card, based on the plethora of 'flies I spy on the wall.  I also picked up on the soft peachy pink of the pillow shams, and the general softness of the whole scene.


My chipboard butterfly was wiped with white craft ink, then glittered.  I wish I had painted it white instead, 'cause I'm seeing too much chipboard-color.  Still, I think it is pretty.  The sentiment is new-to-me Papertrey Ink / Think Big Favorites #16.

Snow will be melting around here bit by bit as we are expecting temps in the 50s this weekend.  Though I love snow and winter, even I am ready for a bit of a thaw.  Well, really it's my arthritic joints that are hoping for the warmer weather ;-)



Stamps: Think Big Favorites #16 - PTI Paper: Mariposa Stack - DCWV; white - PTI Ink: Versafine Onyx Black - Tsukineko Fibers: white crochet lace Accessories & Tools: chipboard butterfly - Michael's $1.00 bin; pearls - Queen & Co.; iridescent glitter
