Thanks Ever So Much Erin!

Hello there..happy, happy Monday!  We ended up with an absolutely beautiful weekend.  They called for lots of rain, but thankfully we only had a small shower on Friday and Saturday night.  It was so nice to have sun and mid 70s for the weekend.  I also had a fairly quiet weekend with Ryan and Jonathon since Pat was camping with Collin and Marcel.  

I have been looking forward to playing along with Erin's 1000th blog post challenge.  She always rocks the May Arts ribbon so her challenge for us was perfect...make a card with May Arts goodies.  To say the May Arts ribbon is fabulous is an understatement.  It ties bows perfectly!  I decided to play along used the current Retro Sketch....and also to used up some of my patterned paper.  I'm currently loving the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss paper pack.

And...if you haven't stopped by Erin's blog...she is a gem of a friend...we love comparing work and boy stories.  Even though we haven't met in person, I'm sure we'd have no problem chatting live too!

Before I go, here's a picture of the campers from the YMCA Indian Guides camps.  The boys decided on a cabin this weekend instead of tents.  Love all their happy faces!

Hi Lynn,
I think you don't use patterned paper very often? Mostly you treat us with perfect stamped work (-:
Since I love butterflies, I do like this card very much! And your bow is perfect indeed!
Have a nice day

Love this pretty, feminine card! Lovely colours. Glad your campers were dry all weekend - it rained on and off (every 1/2 hour, it seemed) here all weekend while my son was off canoeing with the Air Cadets. EVERYTHING was soggy when he got home last night! YUCK!
