Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #257 Butterflies

Monica is hosting today's challenge and the theme is Butterflies!  As usual, anything you enter is fine, a card, a scrap layout, a mixed medium piece,  some home decor,  as long as it meets the Butterfly theme.

I made this album to give to my older sister for her April birthday, however, a nasty little thing called a coronavirus decided to explore our planet and cancel our get together. So, we agreed to celebrate when things return to some normalcy. The waterfall pages contain sentiments and pictures of the two of us through the decades.

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #256 Celebrations

Kim is hosting today's challenge and the theme is Celebrations
ATG. As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece,  some home decor as long as it meets the 'Celebrations' theme.

I choose to celebrate a best friend who I have known since grade 9, oh so many years ago. I have made this card while in COVID-19 seclusion and sent it to her as a small attempt to bring some cheer during this Shut Down of 2020, a just because  card.

I used a die-cut for the black swirls and the frame of the burlap sentiment which came from an old paper pack. The tag came from my stash, origin unknown. The stamped words on the tag are from Stampin Ups 'Amazing You' and ' Express Yourself' stamp sets.

Have a great shut-in- day!
