*OK... I Lied*

It is cold and wet in Calgary today.... it's a whopping 5*C right now (41*F) and it's raining. Let me tell you, this is not the weather I imagined for the last weekend of summer vacation!!! There should be more sunshine at the end of August... not to mention a lot more heat!!

I am enjoying some "me" time alone in the house this afternoon. I ran a few errands this morning and now Bruce and the boyz (plus four extra kids) are at the rec centre in the pool. My laundry is now done and I am sitting in front of "PS I Love You", surfing blogs and stamping. The perfect way to spend such a yucky day!

I decided to participate in Beate's current Weekend Sketch Challenge today so I've lied to you.... today you will not start seeing Halloween cards! Instead, it's a butterfly.

The patterened paper is by Time Flies Designs and I added Whisper White and Night of Navy cardstock. The butterly (The Angel Company, Butterfly Swirls) and the sentiment (Amuse) are stamped in Night of Navy Ink. The sentiment is stamped on to the other side of the patterned paper. I also added some green and blue Dew Drops along the seam for a little interest.

Now that I have this posted (and before the deadline too!) I'm going back to see if there is still creativity in me!!

Happy Sunday all!
