Paper and Ink Imaginings

just playing with paper and ink


Butterfly Circle Birthday Card

This is card #2 for my mother-in-law – her birthday is next week.

I had been looking at a Reverse Confetti stamp set that has a butterfly wreath. Pretty. BUT, no disposable income to be found in my craft wallet.

Do I have a small butterfly stamp that I can use with the Gina K. Designs wreath builder?? (YES)

Rooster Love Card

And November begins…

I finished the paperwork I was working on for the in-laws early in the week, and even found time to stamp and color a few things before other chores took over (making a birthday cake, cleaning the house).

I am hoping that a few fun size bags of M&Ms will lure my mojo to the craft table this afternoon!

Have a great Friday!
