Simply Create Too Challenge No. Think Spring

 Hi Stampers...I made it to CA in my new car on $65 worth of gas. Gas is now $4.85 here. Going back to AZ won't be as cheap I'm afraid. I drove for an hour in a pretty nasty rainstorm, but all in all it was a great trip for my first time alone (except for my little mutt who was my faithful traveling companion).

If you guessed IPad Next Generation as my big surprise, you were right! So much fun to use...that is when I get a chance in between caring for my 4 yr. old grand-daughter.

Before I left, I made a card for the Simply Create Too challenge, It's Spring. I wanted to use bright spring colors and my butterfly dies from Cheery Lynn Designs. So I used an A2 white card base and placed strips of textured cs across. Then added the diecut butterlies cut from the same cs. The work is cut using a Cuttlebug diecut alphabet called Olivia and the "i" has a bit of bling.

So until mid-April posts will be few and far between while I enjoy my CA family. 

Be well.
Blessings,
Erica
