Butterfly Kitty

How about something that's just cute today?  It's a sweet way to start out the week.  This is a birthday card made special for a kitty-loving friend, and it uses the other half of the Tutti Designs Butterfly Oval which was on my previous card.  Butterfly Oval for Butterfly Kitty.  This Penny Black stamp is pretty old, but it's just as adorable now as it ever was.




Copic coloring and Mintay "Springtime" papers, some stitched dies... lots of fun in this card.




I'll list all supplies below.

Speaking of springtime and fun, it's busy days at our house.  We've been in the process of trading our current motorhome in on a new one.  Same size, but an upgrade.  It's like buying a car and a house at the same time, so lots involved, including unpacking our current motorhome and giving it one last courtesy cleaning.  We're picking up the new one on Thursday.  Looks like another fun spring, summer, and fall ahead of us!

I'll see you here again on Wednesday.  Take care, and have a happy day!


Stamps:  Penny Black Butterfly Kitty, Power Poppy Under Glass sentiment  Paper:  Neenah Classic white, Mintay Springtime designer paper  Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Garden Green  Coloring:  Copic markers  Accessories:  Rhinestone, Wink of Stella on the butterfly, Scotch brand foam mounting tape to pop up sentiment circle  Dies:  Tutti Designs Butterfly Oval, Memory Box Stitched Circle Layers, Taylored Expressions Stitched Rectangle Stacklets, Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Scalloped Stackables

What a sweet adorable card Leslie! Everything about this card makes me smile. Love how you used the other half of the butterfly oval die cut, and the gingham pink border, so pretty. Yes this PB stamp is pretty old as I think I have this one myself. Your new home sounds exciting - I bet you can't wait to do some more travelling! Have a wonderful day.

OMG How adorable! Such a sweet image and I've got my eye on that die. I'm trying my hardest not to buy anything new since I have soooooooo much that hasn't seen the light of day yet, but with my love for butterflies, I may not be able to resist. Hope the purchase all goes well. I'm still waiting for you to make your way to H Town on one of those trips. :)

Oh, this whimsical kitty makes me smile even though I am a dog lover! Your card is adorable and I love the bit of pink surrounded by bright green leaves. You get me every time with the stitching! I love it when you do it but forget to pull out my little machine to add it to my cards. Wonderful that you got a new motor home!
