Good Morning...

Popping in with two quick cards inspired by Jay Gee's Challenge #5.  I loved the colors and they immediately called out for me to use some of my new My Mind's Eye Paper...and the butterflies I had on hand were perfect to make a couple of quick birthday cards.  These are some of the final cards for my mum's friend.  Hope you like them...a little stitching, a sentiment and some gems...and off we go!
I'm off to get my day started...but first need to go sew a hole in Ryan's baseball pants.  He's desperately hoping that the first baseball practice of the season doesn't get cancelled today due to rain! 

Hope your weekend gets off to a fabulous start!

Ingredients:  Butterflies:  Little Yellow Bicycle; Ink:  SU Chocolate Chip; Kaiser Kraft Gems:  Stamps:  Hero Arts; DSP:  My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose
