Friend...and some happy news!

Had to stop in today with a card from a new set! This one is thanks to Keva! I knew I did not need it...then she posted with it and posted with it again....and again.....and ok fine...it was in my cart! Now it is in my hands! Thanks Keva! We all enable each other SO well!

I had the girls over this weekend (Amy and Jen) and we got lots of crafty time in! Here is one of the several cards I made this weekend...

I love the CAS look here! Coloring the grass and leaves were so much fun! And I just love the butterfly! You probably can't see but the insides of her wings are glittery!
