Rainbow Butterfly...TIME OUT Challenge #29~Inspired by Words, CAS(E) this Sketch #119, So Suzy Stamps April Challenge~Birthday

Hello!

I'm beginning with an apology, not because I'm subjecting you to yet another butterfly stamp *grin*, but on account of the 'internet greeblies' that have been tampering with my commenting AND (to my surprise) my FB messages AND to my emails!  Comments are being eaten, FB message notifications are being received, however, no text appears, and my emails are making their own decisions as to what is/isn't spam.  Grrrr to the hooligans!  Anyway, some notes (random selection) appeared that were sent several days ago, which means that I owe responses to some of you! Bear with me....though you may think I've been ignoring you, such is not the case at all!  I've just been *ignorant* of the missing messages. Mega-apologies...and I hope, please, I'll be forgiven!  Goal #1: catching up. Goal #2: resolving the mystery!

Oh yes, add to that the extraordinarily long time for mail delivery I've been experiencing!  A pre-Easter sent card arrived just today, while other cards/orders, have been taking up to a month to arrive!  Snail mail...oh yes!

Anyway, in hopes that this post will arrive safely, I'll put on my 'tout suite' suit...

Introducing my rainbow inked "newish' butterfly (So Suzy Stamps)...had to give it another play date,,,posing this way...


and that way.  I should have used darker green, but...in real life, it's more showy, as is the Wink of Stella-ing.


Off to CAS(E) this Sketch #119 (a bit of a stretch, I suspect...)


TIME OUT Challenge #29~Inspired by Words  'You can't make a Rainbow without a little Rain'




NOTE: Absolutely honoured and delighted to be selected the winner over at So Suzy Stamps. THANK YOU ever so much!

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

  3. So very pretty, Carol! Love the colors and you can post butterfly cards as often as you please in my humble estimation. One simply cannot go wrong with that idea. So sorry that you have had a time of it with delivery (or rather none delivery)of comments and mail. Hope those gremlins settle down for you! Hugs!

  7. Sounds like your electronics are not playing nice with you Carol! Boo to that! lol That is the way it is with electronics, awesome when they work and totally frustrating when they don't. I love, love, love your card and it is looking pretty darn showy to me so I can imagine how beautiful it is in real life! Hugs, Brenda

  13. And yet another fabulous butterfly - what fun to give it rainbow wings! You are just amazing with them. You probably will put them on your Christmas cards and that will fly! Chuckle - my personal challenge for you, but probably not, since you are so good with them!

    And don't beat yourself up too much! ;) We all have those 'not so much fun/frustrating' times with things. Hopefully, you'll solve the mystery soon! ;)
    Oh, and just so you don't think I'm ignoring YOU...you always leave the sweetest comments on my blog (thank you so much!). Though, I can't reply to your comments because it has a 'no reply' for the email address. Not trying to frustrate you more, though I didn't know if you were aware of it. Would love to reply back to you. ;) Hugs
