I finally made time to create a card………….
Of course, it helped that I have a dear friend whose birthday is today and I created this card for her!!! She has been quite ill with congestive heart failure and lung problems…so if you could add Melitta to your prayers, I know she will be grateful!!!
I have been busy working on projects for Pazzles, plus my youngest son, wife and two adorable grandsons came for a visit, so since the holidays I have been quite busy!
The “Woven Frame” was designed by me using Funtime Deluxe 2009 and was cut using my Craft Robo. I used Adobe Photoshop CS3 for the sentiment. The bottom layer of the butterflies and all of the cardstock layers were cut using my Pazzles “Inspiration Creative Cutter”.
