Don't you love the way kids say "flutterby" instead of "butterfly"?
Being a speech therapist by trade I love the way children develop language. Right now little David who is 2 and a few months will say "have it" (or more specifically he says "HAFF IT") instead of "I want it." For example if he drops an item on the floor out of his reach he will say "Omie, have it" which translates to "Omie, crawl on the floor under the table...watch out for the bread and butter I dropped and get my *fill in the blank* because I WANT IT NOW!" I know this for a fact. Yesterday when we were at Cheesecake Factory celebrating my son's 25th birthday he said "Have it" several times to me as he dropped his car, his truck, his book, his crayons and his Thomas the Train at leas 21 times each. I got very intimate with the floor under the table at Cheesecake Factory. I will admit the floor looked much worse when we left than when we were seated!
Here is today's Flutterby card:
HERE is a link to that card. (Unfortunately the link does not take you to the site of the original card.) I just see now where the card was also stitched. I should have done that, too! Now that I am pretty good at corraling my beast!
I used the new EK Success (Ok, it may not be new but it is new to me) to punch the butterflies. The punch I used has three settings...one with a fully punched out butterfly with the more intricate look, a second that actually just punches out part of the inside of the butterfly and the third setting is a shadow or base. In this card I only cut the "intricate" butterfly and the base. I mounted the butterflies on kraft cardstock and then put it on a white card base. The sentiment came from a Close to My Heart set I have. I didn't use any foam tape but the butterflies are just glued in the centers so the wings are free and slightly bent to give a bit of dimension.
I think I will have to make more Flutterby cards!
