So yesterday it got up to 40 degrees here in NW Missouri and right now it is 18 with a wind chill of 7! Gotta love crazy Missouri weather right? And tomorrow we are in for another snowstorm of 4-7 inches! Oh my! I am hoping we at least go to school tomorrow to get in a half day! I am tired of my lesson plans looking like football plays with all the x's and lines drawn everywhere! I am previewing two new books for my kiddos though, Sisters Grimm which is a series - I love series! I get very attached to characters! Some of my faves are Harry Potter and Percy Jackson for kids and Twilight and Shopaholic for older. And the other one is Granny Torelli Makes Soup - so if you know anything about these books, have comments, opinions, resources etc. please feel free to share!
And enough about work, onto today's card:
this is for the Viva la Verve challenge and it stretched me a bit!
It is a long skinny card - usually I just do standard and square so that was a challenge and then I didn't have rhinestones to match, which I was able to remedy by coloring some clear ones with my Adirondack alcohol markers!!!! I don't have that much Verve so I used Donna Downy for Unity for the stamps. The butterfly I cut and layered using my cricut. If you look closely you can see I glittered the butterfly up with rock candy stickles. Thanks for looking!
