Brushos and Butterfly


Hi everyone.  Playing some more with my Happy Little Stampers stamps.  This is part of the Butterfly Birthday set.  I simply heat embossed my butterfly and sentiment in white onto mixed media paper, and then sprinkled yellow, leaf green and turquoise brusho crystals and then misted lots of water.  Fun, easy and quick card to make. :)

It's been a busy start to the week.  We are having a heat pump installed (heating and A/C).  Yesterday, the furnace was installed and today it's the air conditioner.  It should be up and running by this afternoon! :)  Hubby and I have suffered through the heat this summer.  It's been exceptionally warmer than usual for our area, and I think it's just a sign of the way it's going to be.  The A/C should help keep us cool and feeling better in the summers from now on.  Speaking of feeling better, hubby is sick today and in bed.  Hopefully I'll be able to learn how to run the new system before the installers leave today.  Wish me luck! :)

Thanks for coming by for a visit!

beautiful in many ways - i think i might have to succumb to buying some brushos one of these days - they look like so much fun and give such a fantastic background

Very pretty card Loll, have loved lots of your cards lately, but my arthritis in my right hand has been horrible, hence not wanting to type too much of late, so just wanted to let you know, I have been watching your card making, just not commenting much, keep up the great work.
love
Donna

The Brushos are a great background for the lovely butterfly, Loll. Sorry your husband is sick. Maybe he'll feel better once the AC is up and running.

Can you hear me going "ooooh" ---if not, I DID! Love the look of the new HLS butterfly the way you've used it on this beautiful brusho background. Very bright look with the white embossing, really liked the sparkle of yellow that was tickling through the blues. Hope Mr. is soon over whatever has him sidelined just now, and again, glad the a/c is all installed. TFS & Hugs

Barb Ghig said...

You make me want to take out my Brushos to play...thanks :) I love the simplicity of this butterfly and the colors on your background are gorgeous! Another really beautiful card, Loll!
I hope you were able to learn your new A/C system, and that you've gotten some relief by now...I also hope DH is feeling better!
