Hope Butterfly

This weeks freebie at Delightful Inspiration is 'Hope Butterfly'.
I printed out a few of the images from the set that I rec'd
on Friday of last week.
Now that I am looking at the set, I used every one of them, even the 'hope'.
The border I printed twice, rotating it once!
The Flower I printed three times but only used two of them.
And the final creation with ribbon and the top wings cut with a craft knife.
 Thanks for coming by!
AND a big thanks to Faith for the Delightful HOPE BUTTERFLY set.

Canada's Thanksgiving

On October 10 Canada will celebrate their  
is challenging all crafters to make a card using fall colors or thanks or fall colors using pick.
Have you seen the new, updated, gorgeous look at DDCCB?
Jules did a fab job of re-doing the Daisy's blog and it looks so fresh and vibrant.
This was a fun and quick card since the leaf was colored weeks ago 
in anticipation of this fall challenge.
I used the Japanese screw punch to make the two holes,  then thread the twine through and tie on the leaf.
I used two different kraft papers and a leaf border punch.
This card, not counting the coloring of the leaf, took about five minutes, not
exactly my usual card!!!
Thanks for coming by!
