I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I'm loving this warmer weather. We went to the lake for the first time this season. It was felt good to be there. We are starting to make some preparations for the summer!!! Unfortunately I caught a bug. It has knocked me on my butt. The doctor says I need to rest for a few days. I checked with my 2 year old boss. I'm not sure I'll get a day off. No worries...we will make the best of it.
Today's card features an old retired stamp called Swallowtail from Stampin Up. I managed to pick this guy up at a garage sale. I'm so surprised that anyone would part with such a gorgeous stamp.
When I inked it up I realized just how big this stamp is. It is huge! You really can't fit it on the a card front. I couldn't bear to cut the butterfly...so this was my solution.
