love you always....

Hello friends.... wow!!  2012 is almost over!! Time sure does fly doesn't it??  The holiday rush is over for another year.   Hope everyone had a wonderful Christimas!! I did... I got a Nook from my boys!!!  

I don't know about you, but I haven't had the time to get any crafting done and if I had the time I just didn't feel like making anything.  That was until I saw the inspiration photo for the December PTI blog hop.  I wasn't able to play along, but the photos were so pretty that I just had to make something.  So I combined it with the current PTI "Make it Monday" challenge.  I only played in a few MIM's this year and if they continue it in 2013 I hope to play along more.


For this card I revisited the "glitter buttons" MIM.  I used the PTI anniversary set Pretty Peonies and the matching dies.   After die cutting the butterfly from Soft Stone cardstock I stamped the butterfly with VersaMark watermark ink, white embossing powder applied and then heat set.  The oval frame was die cut from white cardstock, stamped with VersaMark, clear embossing powder applied and heat set.  The leafy branches are a Taylored Expressions die and they were die cut from vellum and then some Ice Stickles applied to them as well.   Along the edge of the card I adhered a paper doily border, some Soft Stone ribbon and then layered everything else up and finished by adhering the glitter button and the sentiment. Here is a detail shot showing the butterfly a little better.  Picture isn't so great... sigh.... 

Thanks for stopping by....
