It Was Almost Like A Song

The challenge this week at Eureka Stamps Challenge Blog is to create a card or project that is Inspired By the Lyrics To a Song.  I was totally planning on using this beautiful butterfly image to recreate the song "Butterfly Kisses" by Bob Carlisle.  But, since I couldn't quite figure out how write out Butterfly Kisses in the small space I  had left myslef, I switched it to something that would fit, and that was "Endless Love".  My Mother-in-Law loves that song, and this little gift is especially for her, so....it all worked out just fine.
My Mother-in-Law has also fallen in love with the IPhone game, Draw Something.  So, I bought her this stylus for her IPhone so that she can use it to draw her pictures.  For those of you who play Draw Something, and would like a good stylus, DON'T go to WalMart or Target.  They cost about $13 each there.  I found a great deal on EBay for $3.90 I got an assortment of 10 styluses - one in each color of the rainbow.  They work great, had free shipping, and you will LOVE them.  They arrived in about three days.
I used some of my brand new washi tape from Freckled Fawn on this little project that I won this last week at Pile It On Challenge Blog.  This little bookmark was a fancy way of presenting her stylus to her, and I simply attached it to the paper and added some ribbon and flowers to make it look special.  She got the gold one out of my little "rainbow" of styluses.  They have a soft drawing pad on the end - and work perfectly on the IPhones for many things - not just Draw Something.  FUN!

No Matter Which Challenges - Challenge #6 - Ribbons & Bows - How fun!  I've used digital butterfly images from Eureka Stamps, and ribbons and bows made of seam binding.
