Fluttering By With A New Project & Something Tasty...

Hiya guys! I hope you are having a fabulous weekend! I only have a few minutes before I have to hop in the shower to get ready for a family get together tonight, but I wanted to hop online right quick and blog a bit. I wanted to share this project with you. It's another note card gift set, but it was inspired by the butterfly challenge over at Bitten By The Bug 2.  I can't tell you the last time I participated in a challenge of any kind...it's been ages! But I have been trying to do better at blog hopping and happened across this blog and was so inspired by all of the gorgeous butterfly projects. So I decided to play along as well.

My project was cut with my Cricut and my Gypsy. I used the 'Tags, Bags, Boxes, & More' & 'Indie Art' cartridges on this one. The box is a window box from the TBBM cartridge and I welded the butterfly from IA into the window. This paper is from K & Company. I used a mixture of Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner and Helmar 450 Quick Dry to adhere everything together. I also brought in some bling and some ribbon. This box holds 12 note cards. Here it is:
 I added lots of dimension through several butterflies on the front...
 The side of the box so you can see the cards. I alternated between cream, brown, and yellow cards.
 Here are what the note cards look like:
 Also, yall know how I LOVE to cook, bake, etc, right?! Well I made some goodies to take to our family get together tonight wanted to share my lemon bundt cake with ya. I used a Paula Deen Recipe for this one. It is a recipe for these tasty little muffins called "Lemon Blossoms," but I made the recipe into a bundt cake instead of muffins. This recipe is delicious!!! If you would like to try it, HERE is the link to the recipe....(note: if you want to bake this in a bundt pan, the cooking time will vary from the recipe. I baked mine according to the directions on the back of the cake mix box.)
 YUM! Can't wait to dig in!
Ok, that's all for me today. Brandon and I are making the 12 hour drive back up to our home in PA tomorrow! It's a killer of a drive, but I am ready to be back home! I have really enjoyed time spent with family, but I'm ready to get back to my own bed and my own scrappy space. So, I'll see ya in a few days!

Scrappy hugs! Thanks for stoppin' by!
Pin It!
