Butterfly Cards for Operation Write Home

Hi Dreamers,
I am back today with a few more of the Charity cards.  The cards will go to Operation Write Home and Card Care Connections.    I also made a few for my friend--and one or two for my own "to send" box.
The theme for today is: butterflies.  I went a bit crazy making butterfly cards.  I made lots of color variations, but I am just showing one of each here.  On the first card, I was inspired by a card in a Stampin' Up catalog.
Card #1

Stamps: all from Stampin' Up
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Punches: Postage stamp- Stampin Up
Dies: small label - Amuse Studios

Card #2

Stamps: Scrolls - Basic Grey; Sentiment - Amuse Studios
Ink: Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip - Stampin Up
CS: white
Orange jewels
Butterfly die cuts- Sizzix

**********A few fun challenges for my Butterfly Charity Cards:

Operation Write Home ODBD Challenge: insects
The Sisterhood of Crafters: white on white--2nd card
Through the craft room door: anything goes
Craft Your Passions: no DP---2nd card
4 Krafty Girlz: anything goes

Coming up in Dreamland:  More of the Doll Border cards and more of the Charity cards.  I have been making more cards all week!  I am going to finish up the 20 I have out on my work table and then that will be all for the charity cards.  I will get them packed up and sent off.  Still a bit of work to do with those.  But, all for a good cause.  I hope you are having a great week!  Love ya.
