Dawn and I shopped the scrapbook store last week and I bought the Memory box die. It is called the reverse butterfly collage. Here is the link   It makes such an easy and elegant card. Sorry about this link. It takes you to Memory Box, but you have to type in Reverse Butterfly collage.
Last week Linda F, Emily & I got together and made a bunch of them. We used the 'smooch' background. I am not sure what it is really called. There is a video, but generally it is a watercolor background. We used a craft sheet and 'smooched' 3 colors of distress ink on the sheet. Then we spritzed it. Sometimes one color at a time works better. Using a 4x6 piece of transparency, we picked up the colors and applied them wherever we wanted them on the background. 

                       Had fun with these, and as you can see, the dp looks great for the backgrounds.
Thanks for looking....

Today is a great day for blogging. It is early in the morning, but it looks overcast and cloudy. I chose blogging over baking. Good day for that too, only with blogging you don't have to do dishes!
Yes, speaking of dishes.. we had company, family for the last ten days. I love having Dawn as she and I craft or 'die cut' our little hands out, and as a bonus I get to enjoy my grandson Johnathon. 

             Yes, we are related, we both have a shaker card obsession!
              Dawn did all these cards with cute designer papers, 

Hopefully, no one sees these cards before they get them!
