Hello Calendar Girls,
To honour a dear longtime friend of mine who passed away early today, I would like to request that you create a beautiful card using the following guidelines:
Your card must be a fancy fold, and have apples stamped on it -and colored-
(OR, if you don't own any apples's stamps, apples can be incorporated on your cards via designer papers,stickers,dies etc..), plus have at least one 3-D butterfly on your card too.
The main colors used for this challenge are to be your own favourite colors (use at least two of them please, and tell us which ones they are once you blog it.)
Why the apples/butterflies combos you may ask?
My friend used to bring me tons and tons of beautiful apples from her garden at about this time of the year as the fall season just starts to appear, and today, at the hospice, she was covered in a gorgeous handmade blanket full of beautiful colorful butterflies as we said our final goodbye....A bigger 3-D all white sequined butterfly was placed on top of her heart too...♥
Please note: Your cards are NOT to be sympathy cards at all, please keep them ‘happy/festive’ - as a celebration of LIFE in general! ♥
♥ Hug a friend today...life's way too short!
Thank you and God Bless to all! ♥

So, I didn't have an apple stamp, so used some cool dp, and a new butterfly that I adore. I must admit that fancy fold didn't happen..... Yep, I couldn't follow simple directions. BUT, my interior might redeem me with its fancy folds.
I used red and green because this time of year they are my favorites! I think it is because to me they represent the start and finish of the season.
And, not to leave you hanging, here is the interior of the card!
Please, stop by the rest of the Calendar Girls blogs! They love luv!! Their links can be found on my sidebar!
Thanks for stopping by!
