Butterflies: A Challenge... and a Special!

Happy September!! I love September. It still feels a little like summer, and the temps come down to a more comfortable level. But there is plenty of time for summery stuff! What is more summery than butterflies? I bet you have tons of summer photos that could use a little butterfly somethin-somethin :)

Well, I needed a wedding card for my dear friend Jill, who got married last night. Congrats Jillie-bean! (forgive the grainy photo) I worked with this lady for 6 years and I really miss working with her. She is a fabulous nurse :) She had to have a bright and happy wedding card. 

I used this sketch from Fab Friday to come up with this:

Now, I know you are looking at this and saying "That says happy birthday. That's not a wedding card!" Well, this is not exactly the card she got. I gave her the card before I took a photo, so I made another one. There is a certain young lady who has a birthday coming up that I thought would like this card design also. 

I also made this envelope gift bag for the Recycled Challenge #2 over at There is a video there on how to make a little gift bag from an envelope! How cute is that?! I actually made this first, then decided I needed a matching card :)

As for the special I mentioned in the title, here it is!

This month I am going to try something new to me. The Hostess Code! I will have an on-line workshop open for the month of September. If you place an order of $35 with me using the September Hostess code 49PT9E3N
 then I will send you a two-card kit featuring the Butterfly Bundle! 

Do you want to host your own Virtual or Real Life Workshop? I'm game! Just contact me to find out how!

Great job with the envelope bag and card. Love the color combination and the unexpected (but good lookin') burlap ribbon. Tfs

I love the sanded background on your card! The butterfly looks really cool layered over the scrap of ribbon and I wouldn't have thought to try that. Great card! Thanks for joining us at Fab Friday!

I really like how you layered the larger butterfly with the natural trim! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
