Did you see today's Limited Supply Challenge on SCS? NO TOOLS! Yikes! I decided to make it simple all the way with this card. The base is Bazzill Bling, cut to 4 1/4 by 5 1/2, but is a single layer, not a folded card. DP is Moxie Sweet & Sassy. The cream panel is actually a small notecard, and it is mounted on the other panels so that it opens a bit like a flap card. The notecards are in my stash and I'm trying to use stuff instead of hoarding! I stamped the Rhonna Farrer flourish in Certainly Celery, and the flower stamp from Baroque Motifs in Lavender Lace and Pretty in Pink. The butterfly is actually a Prima flower with one of the petals cut off. I saw it done here at Gleefully Done and copied the idea. The butterfly antennae are drawn with a black glaze pen. Inside I stamped Happy Easter. I think I overcorrected the brightness of the photo. So, if anyone is wondering why I have had so much time to post today (I think it's a record!), DS is home sick AGAIN!! When are all the germs going to be gone? He was sick all week, and went to school yesterday, but woke with a fever again this morning. Poor little guy. And poor us, paying for a full week of daycare when he only attended 2 days! Oh, well. This fuels my argument that I should quit my job, stay home and have another baby, get my school media certification and go back to work in a school library when the (hypothetical) baby is old enough for preschool.

I just had one of those weeks when I don't feel that I did anything well, because too many things are demanding my attention. My fix? Hide in my stamp room and play! Sorry for the ramble - thanks for looking!

Very cute card! Working at a school is way better, I gotta tell ya, all the vacations, no nights, summers off! My little guy is still having fevers and I had to pay for a full week of care too so I can totally relate. I hope your little guy feels better soon! He's been at my mom's for two days having a ball actually!
