Butterflies and t-shirts: Kristina's Challenge, finally!

I haven't gotten back into my scraproom since we've been back from our 10 day trip to Wisconsin. Can I tell you how much I missed my scraproom -- my hands itched. One day, I took Zack and we went to Michael's just to feel normal. And then we went to Joann's, because that is what we always do when we're at home. Go to one, then the other. And, I found 40 packets of beaded fringe on sale - hurray for a sale - which will make lots of new frames. I am almost to my goal of 400. If you are in Minneapolis, I am going to be at the Canterbury Show. I have so many new fun fabrics - yes, they still are not on Etsy, but go there, add me as a favorite, and check back soon to see the fabulous Paper Miniskirt Fabric Picture Frames. On to the cards...I did this one for Kristina's Color Challenge. While I had the extra colors/paper, I decided to do a few more:
This is from the Unity Stamp Co December Kit Of The Month. I just got the February kit in the mail today. Can't wait to use that deer! (see photo below). I still can't believe it's only $25 a month for a stamp club. Wow. They are fantastic. And every month they send you a coupon for a future, separate order. They MAKE you buy more...dang it. Their style is so shabby chic, it is forcing me to come out of my square, nice and neat comfort zone and do some things more shabbily. Still working on that. This next one was inspired by one off the Hero Arts website, using Kristina's colors:
Then I dug out my Gina K stamps which I haven't used in forever - I'm still not ready to put away pink and Valentine's stuff...guess that comes with having a boy and never getting to use it...so I used the Basic Grey to make this card for my neighbor who is pregnant. She doesn't know what she's having, but I decided to make it a girlie card anyways. Don't forget to add Paper Miniskirt's page to your Facebook favorites!

Hi there! I stumbled upon your blog through Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration #42. Great take on her challenge. I need to check out Unity for that stamp set and the T-Shirt one from Gina K is too cute. Great projects!
