Your Favorite Pet or Animal....

Good Morning everyone! Glorious sunshine today and I hear all week! Humidity but let's not get picky...its sun!!!

Since my favorite pet is my Yorkies and High Hopes has yet to get some little Yorkies
(maybe someday - hint, hint LOL), I picked a butterfly. I am not sure if this is a classified as an animal but anyway I find them graceful, peaceful and just a pleasure to watch! I can't wait to see my first one of the year.

This is High Hopes stamp is called 'Bedelia Butterfly'. Predictably I embossed with black and coloured with Tombow markers. I screwed up her wings by adding a colour I picked up by mistake and then I feverishly tried to fix. It was not at all what I had envisioned but I really like what happened. I couldn't likely do it again if I tried.

The sentiment 'This bud's for you' is also from High Hopes. I cut the sentiment with my Nesties die cuts, added a bow and little charm from my stash of 'stuff' and of course Stickles.

That's it and thanks for stopping by.
