I had one more card to make from my Tin of Cards kit when I noticed that this week’s Use Your Stuff Challenge  is to use Kraft cardstock.  Fab Friday’s Color Challenge this week is Calypso Coral, Pool Party, and So Saffron.  I combined the two challenges and created this card.  It’s hard to tell in the picture, but the butterflies are heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  Each butterfly also has 3 pearls down the center.

I wanted a matching polka dot envelope so I used the Designer Series Paper Stacks-Subtles.

Here’s some more cards from the Tin of Cards kit.  Yes, Janeen, these are yours!  Janeen and her very talented sixth grade son were at my Tin of Cards class, but didn’t have time to finish before they needed to leave for soccer practice. I finished these three for them. Note to everyone who comes to my classes- if you want me to make some of your cards for you, just say you need to go to soccer practice and I’ll get the rest done for you. 🙂  Hope you like them Janeen!  I’ll drop them off today!

Super Man took Keegan to our Okoboji Bible camp this weekend to help the camp get ready for the summer.  Unfortunately Super Man got super sick.  We think he got food poisoning. (Not from the camp, but from a restaurant they went to Saturday night.) Super Man drives a manual transmission car and decided to teach Keegan a little bit on how to drive it on Saturday morning.  Good thing, because after his short lesson yesterday, Keegan had to drive Super Man all the way home today.  He only stalled three times on a four hour drive.  Not bad for day two of driving with a stick shift!  Keegan is 15 and has a driving permit.

Abby and I stayed home because she had vocal concerts on Friday and Sunday and she babysat her four favorite boys on Saturday night.  The three year old told her she was his best friend!  That made her day!  Her vocal concerts were really good too!  Hope you had a good weekend!

    Thanks Cindy! Super Man recovered nicely. Keegan is quite proud he can drive a stick now.

    Hi Beth,
    First of all, kudos to Keegan for getting Super Man home safely. Hope all is going better for him now.
    What a great card! I love these colors with kraft, they look so good together. My favorite part of your card is the window with the polka dot acrylic layer. Thanks for playing along at Fab Friday!
