Butterfly & Cupcake Happy Birthday...

It's time again for the
challenge. 

This week's challenge is:
Shaker Card 
(plus a sentiment)


Butterfly Happy Birthday...


I enjoyed working with the Cutting Cafe's cutting files!  I used the Butterfly one first... I love the shape!  You know when you make a card and it just doesn't have the mojo for you?  This one was it... The recipient loved the card so I guess that's what matters most, right?
I added a line of very tiny green stickers around the entire butterfly and a vertical stripe as well.  I ended up using Glossy Accents over both stickers to ensure that they stayed put.  By adding the accent papers boxes, the Happy Birthday and some pearl embellishments, 
it was done!

My second card was using the Cupcake pattern... this was fun and it turned out pretty cute.  Adding the Happy Birthday tag with a fuzzy brad 
to finish it off.

Life Goes On...

Whoosh!  That was pretty well my week... Whoosh!  That was pretty well my days off...

WE had always wanted to challenge ourselves to walk to a movie.  We live higher up on the mountain/hill side and had always challenged ourselves to do it, so on Friday evening we set out for the 6km walk thru a local park to down town and then after the movie the 6km walk back.  ahem.... it was downhill going, so yeah, you guessed it, uphill back.  I'm not in too bad of shape but boy oh boy the main road up to our home is steep!  You drive it and it is deceiving... Boyd headed back thru the park ( it was uphill all the way) I headed across and then uphill and he picked me up with the vehicle while I was coming up.  I was glad to see Boyd!  We both did about the same distance but his route was definitely harder....

Thought for the day...

Life's like a movie.  Write your own ending...

I'm smilin' at the camera...
