CCC #114

IMG_6417


Last weekend I was at my girlfriends cottage with 5 others for a girls weekend!
Such a great time with friends, food, laughter, so much RAIN, naps, games and constant talking. Love these ladies so much, they are my neighbours at home but getting away with them is too much fun! I slept until lunch time on Monday and I'm still tired from the late nights and because I guess we are not 20 anymore!  LOL

Now it's time for a new Cue Card at CASology!

This week's cue word is:



I decided to go literal this week and make a butterfly my focal image. Fall is here and the Monarch are well along their migration path to Mexico for this year.  To create my Monarch I stamped my butterfly image using Memento Tuxedo Black and shaded the spots blending together two yellow Copic markers--Y35 and Y38. I detailed the butterfly with clear Wink of Stella. After adding my sentiment I stamped the last word on yellow cardstock and popped it up.

Head on over to CASology today to learn what the 'cue card' means to you, how you can play along and see the all the cards created by the Design Team to inspire you. I can't wait to see what you do!
