    Brandy, you always amaze me with your creativity. I so love this butterfly card, I have made four of them so far, each one with a different twist. I think they are so fun to make and I appreciate you taking the time to share them with all of us, your viewers. You Rock!!

    Hi Brandy! Just posted a card I made patterned after this one, substituting a Fabulous Floret blossom in place of the butterfly. I also made mine a side fold card. I hope you’ll stop by for a look and that you’ll like it!

    Thank you, Brandy. I love your card ideas and videos! I have a new aqua painter I haven’t used much yet, so I am excited for an idea of how to use it.
    My 10yo daughter was watching with me, and says she thinks your glue was behind your Big Shot machine. 😉
    One of the SU stamp sets, “Remembering Your Birthday,” has a 2-part stamp that says “I remembered and thought …”, and the 2nd part is “But then I forgot! HAPPY BIRTHDAY” (with a little “belated” stuck in between the Happy and the Birthday).

    Brandy such a sweet card! A lot easier to do with the circle framelits than a punch(for centering and cut through to layers of cs). I like both the white and the yellow layer.

    Such a cute card, Brandy. I love the way you always put a special twist on a technique that always turns out so classy! Your videos are so much fun. I chuckle right along with you. You have inspired me to get Best of Butterflies, fishing line, hair jell, flashing …..all the fun stuff you use, not to forget “stamps” I didn’t think I was going to get….or at least put on my wish list. Thank you.

  23. Mary July 2, 2013 at 1:15 pm #
