Joan's Challenge #11

Good Morning, I'm off today and plan on playing and cleaning house today. Gotta work tomorrow, bummer uh? Anyway, Joan posted the new challenge this week and it's the first card I made. A friend of mine also had knee surgery this week so she's getting this card, so Sandra, here it is. It's on it's way. I teased her and told her some people will do anything to get a card from me hehe. She's a fantastic ball player and yep, that's how she did this a few years back. See, all that fun does catch up to you. Joan ask us to use :
  • Use the colors Peach and blue (teal)
  • Use some Butterflies
  • Add something Frillie
I used Heartfelt Creations new HCPC 3375 Flora Grande 1 stamp set for the flowers and Spellbinders Blossoms 3, Stampin Up butterfly and Martha Stewart border punch.

and I want to give a BIG ole Thanks to Lizzy from Chubby Kitty for the award. She has just started her blog so go check her out!!!!!
I am so honored she thought of me..... I am to tell 5 things about myself. You all already know more about me than I do hehe. but.....

1. I drink coffee with sugar and cream
2. Never ever add salt to anything
3.Don't fry foods
4. Will usually choose salty over sweet
5. My favorite wine is Gewurztraminer

Now I am going to let who ever doesn't have this grab it.......so have it!!!! Be nice, no pushing please...

Beautiful card, love the colors and those butterflies are my favorite. Hmmm...cleaning and playing, I guess it is needed, I always get my chores done before playing, see I listen to my mom :) Have a great weekend, even if you need to work. Thanks for the shout out for Lizzy, love learning more about a person, I am with you with salt and my family hates it since I don't add it when I cook either, guess I should add some.....I take sweet over salt, yum.

This is beautiful, Olga. I especially like what you did with that border punch. I own it but I just can't get it to sing like you.

I've got to say - this looks amazing Olga! :)

Wow at the flourish bling trailing behind the butterfly. Love the punch border, and a fabulous colour scheme too. One of my favourite cards. :)
