Shades of Gray

While cleaning off my sadly neglected crafting desk, I ran across some items I had purchased at a StampFest event in Orlando last year. Yes, I never stopped collecting new toys! I pulled together a few other scraps that were laying around on the table and came up with this quick, very simple card. I am thinking I see pattern of pink butterflies in my work lately. Maybe it's a promise of spring being on the way? Surely hope so!!

Skeleton Key Butterfly

Hi!! I can't believe it has been over two years since I have posted on my blog! There have been a lot of changes and challenges over the past two years, so I guess the time has just slipped away. For anyone who ever read this blog back then, Kyli is now cancer free and just celebrated her seventh birthday! I also have a grandson who is sixteen months old. He was just diagnosed with a lifelong condition that will present a whole different set of challenges, but he is just as cute as he can be and such a fun guy to be around. Sadly, I lost my father back in January. My husband and I spent a great deal of time getting his house ready to sell and get him moved down to Florida with us. He made the permanent move in June.
There was so much more, but I really wanted to share this card. It is one of a couple I made this weekend. I haven't spent much time in my stamping room and it took a while to come up with the first card, but this one seemed to come together pretty easily. I saw the idea of using a key for the body of a butterfly while wasting time on Pinterest and just had to try it. I think it came out pretty well!
