Fabulous Butterfly

Sorry about not keeping my promise to post this card last night.. My computer has been acting up. Who has time for that kind of interference with the important things like blogging??

This is the second card for my upcoming "Butterfly Tilda" card class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. To see the first card please click This class is scheduled for:

Thursday, April 30th, 11 am to 2:00 pm
Thursday, April 30th, 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Sunday, May 24th, 12 pm to 3 pm

Please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 to sign up for the class.

Oh, and if you can't make it to the class but would like to make two of these cards, please call Cranberry Hill at 408-736-9151 to purchase the Class Kit.

This card measures 6" x 6".

I am working on having more contrast on my colored images.. The colors actually look much softer and more blended in real life then on the photo. I guess now I will have to adjust the settings on my camera too..

The Butterfly Tilda is from the new Butterfly collection from Magnolia. This stamp is available for purchase at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. You can place your order online (here is the link) or call the store during business hours at 408-736-9151 to place your order.

Gorgeous Designer Paper is by My Minds Eye. The blue and the lined layers are the two sides of the same paper. The sentiment is by Hero Arts. I made the flowers the same way as on the card that I posted a few days.. Punched out scalloped circles and then cut into every scallop to make the petals.

Now, this is only for those who are interested to hear about my first workout on the treadmill in almost two years.. Do you know what the hardest part is about starting working out again? Starting and keeping up!! I used one of the pre-set programs on the treadmill, and it was "hilly".. It was actually pretty cool because I didn't have to change the speed or the incline, it was doing it on it's own.. The pre-set work out lasted 30 minutes, and by the end I was definitely huffing and puffing. I definitely feel my body being sore today, but it is a great feeling!! I will try my best to get on it at least 5 times a week..

so adorable Irina! sorry about the 'puter troubles....since you are talking about taking pictures of your you have a post on your blog about how you photograph your cards? I am trying to figure how to get the colors to stay true...even in natural light, too much light, makes the color change!
