A Kaleidoscope of Butterflies

Happy Monday!  I'm pairing two butterfly-themed cards to share today, and needed a good name for my post.  "Bunch of butterflies" just didn't have enough flair.  ;-)  I did a quick internet search, and learned that you can call a group of butterflies a kaleidoscope, swarm, rabble or flight.  I rather like 'kaleidoscope' the best!

Without further ado, the cards:


Mini-supply list for the card above:  sentiment - Think Big Favorites #16 - Papertrey Ink; K & Co. chipboard butterflies; Garden Silhouettes - Stampin' Up!



Mini-supply list for the card above:  sentiment - Absolutely Fabulous - Stampin' Up!; Mariposa papers - K & Co.; purple butterfly sticker - K & Co. 

Our visit with Mom here last week was wonderful.  We spent lots of time shopping, eating good food, and catching up with family (some of whom we hadn't seen in 30 years!).  We took early morning walks, and talked and talked.  I enjoyed every moment, and the week went by so fast.  Too fast.

Thanks for your visit today!

Ooh, these are gorgeous cards, Colleen. They are very striking.

I know you enjoyed your time with your mom and hated to see her go. I'm sure it built good memories, though.

Aren't those butterflies beautiful! AND the paper! The second one is so elegant with that amazing butterfly paper. Love the cheerfulness of the first with the polka dots and pretty pink butterflies. Also love how you used Garden Silhouettes. You made it look so happy and fun!
