Butterfly Shine

Monday, March 3, 2014

Good Morning!
Another snow day here.
It's kind of a good thing since instead of cleaning and doing laundry yesterday,
I sat on the couch for hours and cried while reading The Fault In Our Stars.
It's sweet and funny, but also very emotional.
 Because I work in a K-8 school, I tend to read a lot of young adult/teen fiction.
I really enjoy it. Some of my favorite novels were written for children.

I did take a break from the book long enough, not to toss in a load of laundry, but to play around a little more with my color shine sprays. 
I did run the dishwasher ;)

I sprayed the color shine sprays onto a butterfly mask and then turned it over onto a piece of cardstock.  I made a mint version too.

Thanks for coming by today!

  1. What beautiful cards. Those butterflies are gorgeous.

  2. Those butterflies are just gorgeous. Another thing I need to try with my new Heidi Swapp sprays. I read The Fault in Our Stars, too. Wonderful book. With 2 teenaged daughters, I enjoy YA fiction that my girls would read, too.

  3. Kara both of your card are so gorgeous! So creative to use the ampersand as the butterfly body! I am heading to Michael's today to look at the shimmer sprays. I have to thank you for inspiring me to try some new techniques--get out of my safety zone!

  4. My 16 year old read the book and passed it to me to read as well. I sobbed! I love your cards especially the clever way you stamped the sentiments.

  5. This is very pretty, Kara. I too cried so much reading that book. I had to stop :(

  6. OMGosh...
    I just finished it last night too!!
    I don't recommend reading while walking on the treadmill...
    Patrick thought I was possibly having a heart attack
    or after using some anti wrinkle cream that apparently strips the skin off your face...
    hurt like a mother!!
    But love these gorgeous beauties...
    I'm so getting some of these sprays on my next trip to Mike's!! :)

  7. Wow are getting really good with those sprays! Love your pretty butterfly and little sentiment banner. Thanks for the link about the SSS giveaway...that would be a fun one to win!

  8. Gorgeous butterflies--love the ampersand bodies! TFS all the fun techniques using the sprays.
