Scrapbookaholic by Abby Challenge #1

This is such an exciting day for me! Today is my first posting as a design team member for Abby.   For this challenge we picked from a list of March holidays which you can find by clicking here.  Today so happens to be learning about butterflies day, so I decided to do a card with a butterfly on it. 




Did you know that there are about 28,000 different species of butterflies worldwide and that they cannot fly if their body temperature is less than 86 degrees?  Butterflies can only see red, green, and yellow colors.  I don't think that this would work very well for a crafter, but it might make for fun challenge one day!  I hope you enjoyed my little buttefly!

Recipe:
Designer's Calendar
Pink by Design's stamp of the month Fly away with me
Pink by Design's swirls background stamp
Lagoon stickles

You can go to Scrapbookaholic by Abby to join in the fun. The challenge is being sponsored by Cosmo Cricket and she has a great give away for it!  All you have to do is choose a fun holiday for March which you can find by clicking here, create a project and link it to Mr. Linky on Abby's website.   Most importantly have fun with it!! The deadline for the challenge is Saturday March 26th at 12:00pm PST .

Have a great day and God bless!

Zeni! This is super cute thank you for the facts I love learning things like that and I so glad there are others who love to give fun facts! I do not know how old your kids are or if you have an iPhone but yesterday I saw a game on the iPhone that lets your build your own butterfly they get to pick the wings and body and there are all different species and colors that they can combine I thought it looked neat. I have a 3 year old so he might like it I thought about putting it on his iPod for him. It is free! This card is adorable. I love all the cool things designer's calendar has! I have yet to make a calendar but I have used for so much for other things! Thank you for sharing! I am honored to be on this team with you!
