Butterflies are my FAVORITE!!!
About a week or so ago, my friend Brenda came over to play with me. I didn't have much mojo going on so I just stamped this little My Favorite Things Pure Innocence stamp from the set Butterfly Kisses. Of course I HAD to have this one since she is a BUTTERFLY after all and you know how I feel about those!!! Or maybe you don't? My name is Vanessa which means "butterfly" in Greek (though I'm NOT Greek! LOL). My mom had an affection for them herself and actually has a butterfly tattoo on her chest. Shhh, don't tell her I told you!!! hehe So I suppose my own affection for butterflies began before I was even born. I just simply ADORE them!!! My son's new thing is to say things are his "favorite". For instance, the other day out of nowhere he says "Avery (his little sister) is my favorite!" Yesterday he told my husband "Oatmeal is my favorite!" So, this inspired the title to my post today... "Butterflies are MY favorite!!!" :)
Last night, I was wanting to get up to my scrap area to play but I was glued to the TV watching Cupcake Wars! Luckily, the next episode that was on was one I'd seen before so I did eventually make my way on up. LOL I really need to get cable up there, I think I'd be more inclined to visit my space more often. I do have a TV/VCR up there so I popped in a movie (My Life in Ruins) and decided what I wanted to do with her! I had already paper pieced her with papers from the DCWV All About Girls mat stack so I thumbed through to find a background paper for my card. I really liked the words "Set your <3 on something beautiful." I have something in the works so I will update you on that SOON! I will just say that I am super excited!!! I ended up using some pink velvet paper to fill in the space on the side... and the TOP due to my paper trimmer being uncooperative. :P I added some teal colored ribbon along the top to balance the border on the bottom and to cover up where my paper was pieced together. Lastly, I added a BEAUTIFUL pink rose by Prima Flowers and some self-adhesive pearls. I hope you enjoy her!!!
