Happiness Always...6 little butterflies...

Happy Tuesday! Almost forgot I made this little card for a group swap last week while at my mom's house. I mailed it from their little town post office, it was so quaint, wish I had my camera with me. It had old hardwood floors, white beadboarding, the old-timey brass mailboxes with little windows in them, it was so charming. And the best part: no line at all, unlike the Dallas post offices!

I used the new hostess set, Happiness Always, again. I just love this butterfly image! Have you been perusing the blogs with all the CHA sneak peeks? Well I did yesterday, and I saw a lot of butterflies and owls and even a few sock monkeys! *wink*

I also have to show you really quickly some wonderful blog candy I won and received from Enjoli over at Stamping Under the Sun. Isn't it fabulous?! She was so generous! She's in Hawaii, and I get so jealous just looking at her profile picture! She does great work, so be sure and check her out!


Well, I better get moving. I've been embarrassingly lazy and watched two movies on tv already! The best, Becoming Jane, about Jane Austen (my hero) that I've wanted to see forever. But I promised dh that I'd cook him dinner tonight (I know, I think that will be 4 times this summer!) so I'd better get moving!

Thanks for stopping by, and especially thank you to so many of you who visited my mom's blog and even left her comments! You are the bestest!! *cyber hugs*

Have you stamped something today!

I like the butterflies Angie. I looked at your mom's blog. The quilts are beautiful, i'm guilty of not leaving a post but I'll go back soon I'm sure. :)

Wow, this is fabulous. I love these butterflies, so why didn't I get this set? Congrats on your blog candy.

I love the quilt you got. I had thought about doing something like that for the boys, but I've already gotten rid of thier clothes. Bad mommy I am in that department. I'm going to pass the site onto my mom who is a huge quilter. I didn't pick up the sewing at all.

I love your birthday card. I think they should have picked it up. It is adorable.

Sorry I've put all of my comments into one post. Evan is sick again and I'm trying to catch up . . .

Oh, I love butterflies! This card is very pretty. It also nicely shows off four out of the six new colors. I've really liked all the samples you've made with this set. Maybe I'll be able to earn it since I didn't buy this one.
