How was your Weekend - any Creativity going on?

Why is it that weekends are so short?  Before you know it, it's time to start thinking of work or school. I had a goal this weekend to colour, cut and Glossy Accent some butterflies and I achieved that goal....unlike some of the loftier goals I set myself.  I'm a butterfly person and love to put them on cards, but get a bit miserly with them if I only have a few in my stash, hence the goal.   Here's a few of them, some glazed, some not, some coloured with watercolour markers, some with pencil crayons.......all ready to be used though.

The nice thing about weekends I find, is that sometimes I have the chance to chat with family overseas and today I bumped into a sister-in-law that I hadn't seen online for a while.  That was nice because it's her birthday on Monday, so I was able to wish her a happy birthday. 
Also to chat with a granddaughter who is experimenting with making her own webpage.  I could never have imagined that when I was her age.  Isn't technology wonderful!  I'll share more about the power of technology tomorrow.
Hope your weekend was wonderful and that maybe you got to enjoy some of our balmy weather too, I know my friend did.

  3. Glad I was able to inspire you Audrey. I love those Glossy Accents, they are always on my desk to dress up something or another. Just remember when you do a butterfly to break it down into portions, and use steady pressure. I do one wing at a time starting at the outside and working in to fill the whole wing.
