Bronze Butterfly

Begin with a plain white card base.  The entire card
front is covered with DP (designer paper aka scrapbook paper)
Over that place two difference sizes of Spellbinders beaded ovals.
The beaded ovals have an oval of DP that coordinates with 
the DP that covers the card base.

The flourishes and butterfly are from Cheery Lynn Designs.
The flourish is from a much larger die cut that has
been carefully cut apart.  (Victorian Flourish)
The butterfly has been cut from a bronze gift wrap that is
attached to card stock.

On Being Prehistoric

 I saw this phrase several months ago and it just stuck
in my mind.  I thought it was such a totally cute birthday
card for the right person.

 The stickers are from Hobby Lobby.  The puffy cutesy
ones would be great for a child's card.  
The realistic dinosaurs are wonderful for an adult.
The phrase is computer generated and the die cut
leaves are from a Cheery Lynn Designs die.

I have been gone from the blog-o-sphere for almost a
month. My part time job is agricultural statistics.
I gather raw data from farmers, ranchers, grain elevators etc.
I even go into fields and to counts and measures of
wheat and corn to assist the USDA in making the
 most accurate crop estimates possible.
Right now is the absolute busiest time of year for me.

Liebster Blog Award

Many thanks to Carol Norby for presenting me with the Leibster Blog Award. 
You can visit her blog for a whole lot of inspiration.

The origins of the Liebster Blog Award are somewhat unclear, but the general consensus is that it originated in Germany. Liebster, means favorite or dearest, and the Liebster Award is designed to showcase bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. Upon accepting the award, the recipient must pass it on to five more blogs of note.

Okay winners, here’s what you need to do.
