Have a Great Day...Addicted to Stamps and More #111~Anything Goes (DT), CAS(E) this Sketch #90, CAS on Sunday #41~B & W with one colour

Hello...the long weekend flew by with lightning speed, and the same goes for time, in general!  It seems like only last week that I created a card for Addicted to Stamps and More, yet two have already passed.  Once again, I'm thrilled to join with the rest of the DT for this week's challenge:  Addicted to Stamps and More #111~Anything Goes. This time, though, we're including an optional twist - GET WELL/THINKING OF YOU for a former DT member, Marie.  I know a visit from you would cheer her immensely, and if you created a card, well, just imagine how much her spirits would be lifted!

My design was inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #90


 and CAS on Sunday #41~Black & White with One Colour.  I chose 'pink'...kind of a coral pink.

A simple little number...


The background paper, covered with little bikes,  prompted me to reach for my CB die, as does having my husband away for the remainder of the week, fulfilling his role as an official at the Tour of Alberta 6-day bike race.  It's pretty obvious where my mind was when I created this...and I hope the flutter of butterflies will bring a smile to Marie's face.

This week, the winner will receive a choice of 5 free digis from

Head over to see the dazzling delights from the ATSM DT.  Put on your crafting gear, make a card, and join us in the gallery.  I'm excited to see how Anything Goes inspires you!

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!

  1. This card made me smile big and perked up my day!! I have been stuck in bed today since I fell down the stairs yesterday and shook myself up a bit!! I have taken the time to visit and look at all your cards and you ALWAYS make me smile. I am sorry that you are on your own-some but I am glad that you have the weekend to look forward too!! I am impressed with all those butterflies riding on the handle bars of the bike -- is that a single stamp done over and over -- or is it a cluster of your favorite thing - butterflies!! The way you use butterflies inspires me!! I love that whenever I see a butterfly anything now I think of YOU my dear friend C!! Have a wonderful night!! Craft something extra for me since I won't be getting up tonight!! Maybe I can sneak into my craft room tomorrow! Hugs to you!!

  10. this is so sweet...love the flurry of butterflies...or is it swarm?

    aha:

    A group of butterflies is also called a "swarm", "rabble", "kaleidoscope" or "flutter" of butterflies.

  11. Love the DP background to your card, you obviously had your hubby on your mind when you reached for this. Great idea to link the CB die and stamp to it, a perfect marriage. The butterflies just add the feminine touch. :)
