Kiss It Goodbye...

summer, that is! I head back to work week after next, and I send my baby off to middle school the following Wednesday. Forget where did summer go - where they hey did eleven years go?!

Between now and then, though, I've got a little time left to squeeze in some crafting. Not as much as I'd hoped (Well, the scrapbook's caught up to April. Sort of.) but some...

This week's project was inspired by the Color Splash challenge over at City Crafters. This time, it was a splash of green:

This bee-yootiful Unity butterfly is part of a set of four - and they're all big, like this - that has been the best investment! When you're living on the shoestring, it's not all about cheap; it's about getting a good value, (Yes, I'm still turning into my mother.) and at Unity, you can often do both! I got this set of versatile stamps on sale! :)

The rest of the recipe:
Green leaf ribbon - from Really Reasonable Ribbon
CS - all Bazzill
Sentiment - Verve, cut with a Labels 4 Nestie
I made the swirly paper by inking up a Cuttlebug embossing folder with white Color Box pigment ink and running black CS through.
Organza ribbon - from the stash.

Have a wonderful weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by!
Please leave a comment and come again soon!
