A Big Thank You!

Yes, once again, I need to thank all of my followers and new followers. You guys really know how to respond to a girls cry to meet a goal. We surpassed my 100 follower goal before my personal goal of March 1. So who knows, maybe we will hit 200 by then. The support is awesome.

I also love reading all the wonderful comments everyone leaves for me. They really make me smile.

So here is a Thank you card for each of you who have have joined and to those of you that may stop by once in a while. 
Ok- I love this butterfly cut and have to admit it is the first time I am  using this cartridge. However, when cutting it, the antenna on the butterfly is very thin so I had to cut it a few times before I got it off the mat without it ripping. 

The sentiment looks messing, but is really meant that way and is part of the stamp-- it is a stamp set that has these little sprays on it to have  more of a distressed look to it.

I have also submitted it to the following challenge blogs. Check each of them out, there are some fantastic projects out there.


Here's how I did it...
Basic A2 card size with base paper from Bazzill
Pattern paper from Cosmo Cricket
All other paper from my scrap stash
Butterfly and layers cut at 2.75" from Rock Princess cart , p.67
Sentiments from Close to My Heart "A Little Thanks" stamp set
A bit of lace from my stash
Stickles, chalk, and doodles with my gel pen
