Speedy Fox & Friends #212 - No DP

Ahhhhh!  Saturday!  We are down to the last weekend of the school year which means  CRAZY TIME at our house!   In the midst of all the year end dashing I always find myself pushing through  a bit of sadness as I realize that somehow another year has whizzed by and my children are a year closer to leaving the nest!  Having a sophomore in high school has really driven that point home this year!  So many changes!!!  Perhaps that's why I once again turned to this peaceful image for my   Speedy Fox & Friends sample.  

Our challenge this week at Speedy Fox & Friends is to create a card without using any designer paper.  

This stamp design has one butterfly image at the top of the design but I thought it might be fun to add a few more.  I stamped and colored a total of three extra butterflies, fussy cut them then popped one over the top of the printed butterfly within the design and randomly placed the other two.  I have once again used a sentiment from the Columns & Topiaries 

You can find all the details on the challenge and see fabulous inspiration from the DT at Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge
