Yup! Yet another post. . . . .

. . . . .and two days in a row this time!

What can I say? I had lots of time to craft yesterday and I am even entering a few challenges, which I don't do often enough! My card today is for the new Lawnscaping challenge, which is to use patterned paper.



I decided to play with Lawn Fawn's pretty, "Flutter By" clear set and used some more of the sweet, Echo Park paper from their 6x6, "Country Drive" paper pad. Here's the result.


This EP paper is so fun! Do you see the two little ladybugs crawling in the grass? I cut those out from the same piece of patterned paper as the butterflies. The sentiment is from the same "Flutter By" set but I cut it apart to fit my design - love doing that!

I'm planning on getting a few things done around the house this morning and then heading outside again - I sure picked a fabulous week to take off from work - this weather is glorious!

Thanks for the visit! Hope it's sunny where you are - enjoy your day! :)
