Dreaming of Butterflies


Just stopping by with a CAS card on this nice HOT  Monday to say I hope everyone has a wonderful week.  And you're probably already "dreaming" about Friday - right!

The butterfly and background is from a set called Flores Suaves from SU and can be found in the Spanish catalog.  I've seen Jaydee use this stamp set several times and finally decided I NEEDED it!  If fact, my card is very similar to several of the ones she did.  It's a very pretty set that not only includes the butterfly and background, but also a single rose and a bee.  The "Dream" sentiment is from Inkadinkadoo. 

I'll enter this in the challenge at Paper Play Challenges (theme: things with wings).

(Can you believe how short this post is!  I must be sick or something! LOL!  I will try be more chatty on my next post though....I know you can hardly wait!)

Thanks for stopping by...........
Lynn
