A Little Pink

Prickley Pear:  Thank Heaven (sentiment), Mini Butterflies Die

After a weekend of decluttering and organizing, I’m ready to return to the daily routine!  I love the end result of such a project, but what a mess sometimes!  It needed done.  We’ve lived here two years now and haven’t really felt like we’re completely settled because we haven’t taken the time to stop and think about how to best organize some of the main rooms!  Granted, we moved here two weeks before DS3 was born and things were a little crazy for a while, but it’s time to buckle down and focus on getting things in place around here!  Next up?  The pantry.  Wish us luck…

Since it’s Monday, it’s time for a Prickley Pear creation.  When I received the sentiment stamp in the mail, I wondered how I was going to use it as most of my stamps and papers revolve around little boys in this household of male dominance!  I do have one niece who I feel a bit sorry for sometimes with all the boys she’s surrounded with, so it may come in handy!

Switching gears to pink, I found some girly pink decorative paper and went to work.  I used my mini butterflies die to cut out three butterflies, dry embossed the largest one, added gemstones and adhered them in what I hope is a decent pattern!  I rounded the card corners to soften things a bit and my card was complete!  I keep looking at it, trying to figure out if there is something else I should add, but I think I like the simplicity of it!

Now off to my day!  The sun is shining and it looks like it’s going to be a rather warm one!

Happy Monday!
