It's the Weekend!

Yeah.... the weekend is here.  Last night met a  few friends at the Imperial Club for a few cocktails and a BBQ dinner.  This was one of a few fundraisers coming down the pipe for a girls basketball team who will be travelling to Florida to play.  It seem half the town of Dresden was there too support the girls so had an opportunity to visit with people I haven't seen in a while. Today my plans are to head to Chatham and attend a copic class at my favourite local stamping store The Paper Pickle where Linda Heavens will be teaching colouring with copics.  Should be fun and will learn lots I am sure and since the weather here in southwestern Ontario refuses to cooperate and allow the sun to shine makes it ok to be indoors.

Here is a card I gave a friend for her birthday.  I found it to be simple but elegant.  I picked out a mustard colour base layered brown, some beautiful DP, and yellow netting type material, then embossed a piece of shiny brown paper through the cuttlebug where I added a gem to the centre of the flower.  With my butterfly spellbinders template cut out 1 large butterfly and 1 smaller butterfly  from copper colour "tin" sheet, glued them together and added 3 gems to their body.  Taaa daaa complete.......... a simple / elegant card and could be used for many occasions.............   Happy Mother's Day to all and have a great weekend.
