Spring Butterfly

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Wow it feels like winter has returned here. It was really damp and cold today. Tonite our temps are going down to 29. Our tulips just opened so I hope it doesn't affect them.

Today was my day with my grandsons. They just came back from an Easter trip to San Antonio. They had a wonderful time sightseeing and they even were able to attend a San Antonio Spurs basketball game.

Ethan was the only one who had homework and he didn't need help. Aidin & I usually do his vocabulary together but he didn't have it this week.  I dropped Ethan off at basketball practice at :00 and headed home.

Aidin left his gym bag in my car and he has gym on Friday. I didn't want to drive 45 minutes back over there so my hubby will take it with him to work tomorrow. My daughter-in-laws office is near the airport where he works. I have to check the car because they usually leave something in there. Just forgot to look this week.

Now onto my card for this week. I made this one for the sketch challenge #380 on Splitcoaststampers. It was all about circles this week. I really didn't have any trouble with this one. Just deciding on what papers to use took me a little time. 

For my background, I used designer paper from Stampin Up's "cheerful treat" collection. The circles are cut with various other Stampin-Up designer paper in melon mambo, concord crush and lucky limeade.

For the rectangle panel I used melon mambo cardstock and cut it with a Martha Stewart lattice border punch.
My large butterfly image is from a soon to be released set from Marks Finest Papers - "daffodil greetings".
I used markers to color in melon mambo, lucky limeade and pool party. The spring sentiment is from the blessings stamp set - also from Marks Finest Papers.

I punched some small flowers and butterflies to complete my card. That's my card for today. So until next time........God bless.

Some other challenges:
1.  Celebrate the Occasion blog has a "just because' challenge.
2.  Crafty Sentiments Design has a "spring" challenge.
