Happy Mother's Day! Butterfly Card! Do you clean more than you Craft??

Happy National Scrapbooking Day! I hope you all get to spend a few hours crafting away in honor of such a special occasion! I am forever cleaning my craft room! It seems I enjoy the "stuff" more than the process!! So while I was moving stuff from place to place I put this cutie together:

The butterfly was an extra die I had made from Sizzix
Papers were in my "to be sorted" scrap pile
Grass from a border punch
Ribbon knot was in my scrap jar
Happy Mother's Day stamp by Docerela
Lady bug found while I was transferring stickers from one box to another
Handmade enamel dots because I found my jar of them

  2. Like the scene you created. The Butterfly popped up looks wonderful. Like the dotted ribbon bow. I cleaned out some of my craft room couple wks ago when I had a yard sale and sold a lot of Stampin' Up stamps, SU blocks in case & 2 former Cricuts (Cricut Exp 2 & the one prior to that). I have the Cricut Explore Air now and joined a yr subscription and can cut a lot of images on cartridges I do not own w/ the digital subscription. Was hesitant at joining up but it is so worth it. I made a scrapbook layout today using first digital subscription images from When I Was A Kid Cricut cartridge that I had not even heard of before.

  11. What a wonderful card!
    Yup, I feel like I am cleaning and organizing more than crafting! Collecting "stuff" is kind of an addiction - but at least I can put these items (most of them, anyway) to good use.

  12. Great card, wonderful colors and great die cuts. Thank you for joining us this week at HIMCR.

  13. Well - sometimes I feel like it takes me longer to clean up the mess I have made when I do a project than how long it took to do the project!!! LOL Your card is simply lovely - that butterfly looks poised to flit right off your page!! So sweet the way you created a little scene here - you are very good at that!! So fun!!

  14. Ok the butterfly is adorable! But what is this "clean" that you mentioned?

  17. Carri,

    Great card! I have been doing the same thing as you. I have been making cards with "found" items I have forgotten. It really makes me want to stay in there and see what else I can find :) I'm absolutely in love with your little ladybug!
