Butterfly Birthday

Hi Everyone!

Lots to talk about today, so pull up a chair and grab a good beverage.

First, if you haven't read about my chance to be a Delightful Daisy and win a $15 Gift Certificate to Two Peas, go read about it here.

Second, this is my last card for this week. The hubs is deploying on Sunday for Afghanistan and I am going to spend the week soaking up all the time I can with him. I will do my best though to surf around blog land and keep up with what everyone is doing. I will post Delightful Daisy awards on Friday.

Third, I want to share a blog award that was given to me by Ann Marie over at Stampin' Anne. I was so honored to receive this award. Thank you so much for thinking of me, Anne!
The rules of the Liebster Award are simple:

1.) THANK the person who bestowed it on you, with a link to their blog
2.) ACCEPT the award by posting it on your blog
3.) SHARE the bloggin' love with 3-5 fellow bloggers.

So, here are some fellow bloggers that I am proud to share this award with. I really wish I could have picked more than 5...that was really hard!

1. Bev at Savor the Journey
2. Broni at Splashes of Watercolor
3. Jackie at Kreate with me 2
4. Fiona at Leaves from my Notebook
5. Becky at Diamond in the Rough

Finally, I suppose we should talk about my card! LOL! This was such an easy card to do mainly because of the
patterned paper which is from Cosmo Cricket's "Togetherness" pad. Now, I have to apologize for the crooked picture. I am so terrible at taking pictures! Normally I scan all my cards; but I didn't with this one because I wanted to show the butterflies along the center and I didn't want to squish them!

Here is the list of challenges I am entering this card into, which is not nearly as long as the last one. Wow! Wasn't that insane?!

1. 365 Cards: Use at least 3 1" circles on your card

2. Craft Your Passion: Anything Goes

3. Cupcake Craft Challenges: Use Red

4. Outlawz Monday Birthday Challenge: Make a birthday card and use butterflies

5. Ginger Loft: Red

6. Techno Monday Lunch Sketches: Sketch
