Birthday Butterflies


Well, this evening I have my bags all packed, ready to head south tomorrow morning! Hubby and I are taking a quick trip to Gulf Shores...just 9 or 10 days. It has been unusually cold down there, but nothing like it has been around here. Grand Rapids, MI set some records for cold weather. We had -14 last week! So you can see, I'm looking forward to some warmth...and butterflies! They always make me think of summertime. This b-day card is for a friend whose birthday is the day after we get back so I had to get it done now.


It is a one-layer card using almost all Fun Stampers Journey products...only the sequins are not. The butterflies (from the "Enjoy the Journey" set) have either "Sparkle Dust" or "Journey Glaze" on them to dress them up a bit. And the natural and black twine tied along the fold is that nice stiff kind FSJ sells. Love it! The sentiment and inks are all FSJ too!
Fun Stampers Journey is a great new crafting company...lots of new products, new ideas and designs and a whole new way to earn money or product doing what you love: crafting! If this sounds interesting to you take a look at my FSJ wesite. If you'd like to order some of the lovely products, why not consider having a workshop and earn some hostess gifts!
For those of you who do not live near me, you can have an "on-line party" that you host...you just invite your friends to look at the FSJ catalog on our website and order right there indicating they are "attending" YOUR party! Very easy! You can just send invites via emails, post to your Facebook friends, hand out postcards, etc. Interested? Let me know! Leave a comment or email me at Fivensandie@aol.com.
