Moving Along with the Times and Happy Campers Challenges


"Spring is in the Air" at Moving Along with the Times, and Happy Camper's theme is "Flutterby Butterfly". Spring is not in the air here in Central Wisconsin- more snow in the forecast:(   But I am trying to think spring and Easter in my card making and I was inspired by a pretty card on Pinterest to make an Easter cross out of butterflies. I punched the cross with a butterfly die from Memory Box and then again in a lighter pink for the layered butterflies. Layered the white on a darker pink and then on a white card, then added the sentiment (SU) and pink pearl to complete the card.

Just had to share a smile with you all today that a friend sent: 

Two little old ladies, Connie & Evelyn were sitting on a park bench outside
>the local town hall where a flower show was in progress. The short one,
>Connie, leaned over and said, 'Life is so boring. We never have any fun
>anymore. For $10.00 I'd take my clothes off and streak through that
>stupid, boring flower show!'
>
>'You're on!' said Evelyn, holding up a $10.00 bill.
>
>So Connie slowly fumbled her way out of her clothes and, completely
>naked, streaked (as fast as an old lady can) through the front door of the
>flower show.
>
>Waiting outside, her friend soon heard a huge commotion inside the hall,
>followed by loud applause and shrill whistling. Finally, the smiling
>Connie came through the exit door surrounded by a cheering, clapping crowd.
>
>'What happened?' asked Evelyn.
>
>'I won $1,000 as 1st prize for 'Best Dried Arrangement.. !'
>
>Life is short! Break the rules! Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly! Love truly,
>Laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that made you smile !

Stamping smiles, Karen

Thanks for the smile and I like how the butterflies look like they are flying off of the card.
