Butterflies, recycling, Magnolia, what else?

I'm cuttin' it close, I know, I know, but I simply had to get in on the MDU challenge of butterflies! My baby went down for a nap, I set the kids up with a movie and off I went; creating this beauty!  I also wanted to get in on the TOMIC challenge of recycling, with the same piece of packing I showed you the other day (see pic below). I placed a SU punched butterfly out of that material under the MS punched butterfly......can u see it! YAY! 

The word SWEET is from the JUSTWORDZ Everyday stamp set. (PS- the JUSTWORDZ blog hop is at the top of my blog HERE if you are interested in participating!)

I have more exciting news to share....I'll be back in a mo, I have to get this linked up!

I got the latest Magnolia Ink Magazine today!
Looked on the back cover and guess what!!??!!
Guess what!??!?!?!?
One my cards was chosen by Steph at the Simon Says Stamp Blog to be displayed on the back cover of the Magnolia Ink Magazine!
YAY!! I was so excited! I almost peed my pants!!



My Card with Tilda sitting on a branch! Woot Woot!
