TGIF Everyone. For those of you who work outside the home, I know how wonderful Fridays are. I once heard a cute little saying. . . . "Let Fridays Be Fruitful and Multiply". I always liked that sentiment. Even for those who don't work outside the home, there's just something relaxing and wonderful about Fridays. Don't you think? What makes it even better for me is that (other than church Sunday), I don't have any commitments this weekend. I can just chill out with my family.
I saw this "quilting" by paper piecing technique on a blog this week and thought I'd give it a try. I added a mini crocheted doily in the center, and then die cut a butterfly that I painted and glittered, then added some tiny pearl accents to the center of the butterfly's body.
Here are the challenges I'm entering with this card:
http://www.simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.com/2012/08/simon-says-lets-play-bingo.html - Simon Says Stamp - Let's Play Bingo - My Bingo Includes Glitter (on the butterfly), Diecut (butterfly), and the Free Square.
http://mfpspeedytv.ning.com/page/simple-salutations-challenge-6-08-08-12 - Mark's Finest Papers - Simple Salutations Challenge #6 - Use a Butterfly - I also used a stamp from Mark's Finest Papers for the "Simple Salutation". This Happy Birthday stamp is from their Pansy Riot stamp set.
http://foreverfriendschallengeblog.blogspot.com/2012/08/fortnightly-challenge-no42.html - Forever Friends Challenge Blog - Fortnightly Challenge #42 - Something New (my patterned papers) - I had to redeem myself. You must include an animal for the challenges on Forever Friends' Challenge Blog. So, here is my butterfly. I really want to qualify for this awesome challenge as I'm a bit of a wool felt addict.

Whatever your plans are for the weekend, I hope you enjoy yourself. I'd love to hear what your plans are for the weekend. Hopefully, they include some crafting. I know I will be doing some creating, and LOTS of chillin' out. That's what weekends are for, right?
