I had a bit of time to stamp for fun today! WooHoo! Of course, there are things around the house that I could have done, but I really needed to stamp!

This is the room I chose as my inspiration!

I am also doing The Corrosive Blog Challenge for the GUYS! This week we are make a card for the guys! Goodness that is so hard for me. I still added my fou fou bow and a butterfly. The butterfly is marine mist and only sports one gold pearl so I am thinking it can be a manly butterfly. The bow is brown? This is about as manly as I can get I am thinking.  This card is also for Speedy the Cats Friend Challenge #18!

I like to cheat the nesties from time to time to get more bang for my buck.  I am using the new lacey squares, but I needed a rectangle.  So, I cut out two and pieced together.  You really cannot tell and I think it looks great!  Thrilled about this look!

Verve Floral Whimsy and Serenity sets

ribbon, button, gold pearls, MS butterfly punch, Ranger distressing tool, spellbinders, nestabilities, sizzix embossing plate, lacey squares(made it a rectangle)
