1st Oldie Moldie Monday 2012

I have this wonderful pad of Making Memories paper called English Garden - I don't think I have hardly used any of it so I got it out and started making cards - I believe with the blue rose paper I have made 5 cards - and then I had to try out my new Silhouette machine and I cut the butterfly with it.  It was one of the free shapes you get.  I embossed the butterflies and then layered them to add some dimension to the card.  I tied some bakers twine around the butterfly. 

The stamps used on the top two cards are Hero Arts stamps.  I have gotten so much use out of this set - they is one more stamp in the set - Just Saying Hello.  I used a SRM sticker to complete the butterfly card.

The midweek challenge on the Operation Write Home card blog Stars and Stamps was to make a thank you card in honor of Dixie - our east coast shipper - who has retired from shipping so hopefully she can make more beautiful cards. 

So in 2012 dig into your old supplies and show them some love.  It is amazing how beautiful those papers still are.
