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!
Hugs,

Carol...you are a week early with your TO card-we expect you to be the last one in!! Great to see you so early, it made me smile. This is some awesome stamping! And wow to the stencil use. I still can't get into them. Thanks for joining TO-you could enter this into the 'things with wings' at UNiko x

Carole said...

Beautiful card CArol...as are all the others you have blogged recently. Love the colours involved.....very pretty and butterflies are always a favourite!

Jeanne said...

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!

Brenda said...

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

Oh, how I wish I lived close so I could send my computer guru hubby over to help solve the mystery!!! Hope you get things figured out!! I love your butterfly cards and I think that this one is so perfect in this rainbow of colors!!! I think it fits the sketch totally!! The background behind your butterfly looks so good and is most masterfully done!! Such a sweet, happy, and so bright Birthday wish for someone!!! Perfectly done!! Enjoy your day!!

That butterfly looks magnificent in its rainbow gown! Also love the background!

Cornelia (fun stamping) said...

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!

Shelly said...

Beautiful!
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

Bobby said...

What could be more glorious than a rainbow butterfly,except maybe one as frilly as this one. I love the added background touch, too, Carol.

Kim Heggins said...

Wow...another gorgeous butterfly. I love your fabulous background paired with your sweet butterfly, just so pretty.

Pam said...

That butterfly is gorgeous. Fabulous inking!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Sorry to hear of all your device woes, Carol! So frustrating! Luckily it hasn't had a negative impact on your excellent artistic talent! This is breathtaking!! Hugs, Darnell

Julia Altermann said...

Goodness, I think I should maybe already send you a christmas card now to make sure you get it in time ;)

Greta said...

Oh so beautiful, Carol!

Kylie said...

Ah don't you just love it when computers/the internet do weird and wonderful things. Hope it is resolved very soon. It must be so frustrating.

Love seeing your beautiful butterfly creations and this is no exception. I have to say that the dotted background is the perfect touch too. Beautiful!
