Can I Get a “Toot, Toot”?

Posted on

CAS-ual Fridays is hosting a challenge that asks participants to create a clean and simple card based on his or her blog header. My blog header is actually a photograph that my mother snapped of a butterfly on her Bottle Brush tree. It is such a happy and serene scene and it represents the way I feel when I am creating in my craft room. This was a great creative exercise and win or lose, I really love the card I created.

I couldn’t decide where I wanted to place the sentiment so I stamped it on a scrap of paper and took two different photos to decide.


Doing this visual exercise usually helps me when I can’t decide about placement or color of my sentiments.

There are still a few hours to join in on the challenge CAS-ual Fridays Toot Your Own Horn

Happy Stamping,

Paper crafting is my Yoga. It takes my mind off any stress that I might have at the time. My daughter loves to get involved in my projects too and it is a great way to connect with her. Sixteen years ago I began scrapbooking but, my new true love is card making!

  1. Such a pretty header and your card turned out awesome. I love that you shared such a useful method of deciding where to place things! Great tip! Glad you tooted your horn with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  2. Maureen, this is absolutely gorgeous!! It looks so real, and is the perfect representation for your blog header! Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays! We’re so glad you did!

    • I had to mask the stamp to make it appear as thought the butterflies wings were closed. This stamp is of a butterfly with both wings spread. This challenge pushed me a little to try new things and I enjoyed it a lot!

  3. Beautiful!! LOVE your butterfly, your card is simply lovely:)!! I love how you tried out the sentiment in both places…my choice would have been yours…great idea!! Wonderful take on your header!! Thanks for sharing your creativity this week at CAS-ual Fridays:)!!

  4. Thanks for the love. This project was fun to work on and I am thinking about using the image I created for my card as my logo for my business card. Thanks for the challenge!
