Tuesday Trigger

Hi there! I finally had a chance to make a card for the most recent "Tuesday Trigger" over at Moxie Fab World! Yay!! You can check out the inspiration photo and all of the details by clicking HERE!!!
Here's what I came up with:

I love this quote. It's one of my favorites. I printed it in Microsoft Word (font=papyrus). The butterflies are punched from some background paper that I created myself using Microsoft Word (font=calibri) and definitions of caterpillar, flutter, and butterfly from Here's a closer look at the butterflies:

For the punched butterfly that contains the actual word "butterfly," I made its silhouette red (instead of black) and only adhered the very center of the butterfly so that I could pull its wings up to make it look like it was fluttering by. Here's a closer look at that:

What do you think? I hope you like my creation!

Did any of you watch the Super Bowl? I saw some of it---in between cooking up some fun Super Bowl food! We had bruschetta, spinach dip with wheat crackers, and boneless buffalo wings (with carrot sticks and celery sticks on the side). It was festive and delish!! I have to admit that I was happy for the Saints! It's always fun to see a team win for the very first time ever in their franchise history!!! And overall, I think it was a good game!

Hope you had a GREAT weekend! Thanks for stopping by!!

Lisa, this card is so fun! Love how you made your own printed paper- such a genius idea!

Your Superbowl food sounds yummy! I think maybe you should start posting more pics of your food creations. ;)
