Sorry to have been so quiet lately....life is running at a very hectic pace right now and my stamping time is suffering dearly! I know this is a busy time of year, but always forget just how busy it can get! The house is a disaster, we have two family birthdays this month (thankfully the dinner isn't until next weekend and Mother's Day is now over - phew), the plants I bought last weekend for my planters are still sitting on the deck waiting to be planted, and it's going to be an emotional weekend because we are having some very dear friends over for dinner before they move to Alberta. Yup, think I am officially a wreck LOL! Hopefully, I can get a lot done this long weekend so things are back in some semblance of ordered chaos :D
Enough whining, on to this week's Curtain Call Colour Challenge! Love the inspiration piece Stacey came up with for this week's colours. I bet someone had a lot of fun painting this adorable little play house! Being that there was green in the mix, my mind immediately went to flowers, but you'll be proud to know, I restrained myself and settled for butterflies instead LOL!
I have always loved how people use the grass image from SU's Inspired by Nature set in so many wonderful ways: from adding butterflies or flowers to turning some of the grass blades into cattails. That being said, I decided to give it a go. I must admit this set has been sorely neglected since I purchased it so today is its day to shine :D I also used Flight of the Butterfly, my beloved Swiss Dots embossing folder, and miracle of miracles, I even found a Garden Green button LOL! It felt soooo good to stamp and hopefully I can do some more this weekend!
