Be Inspired # 32 Hearts and Butterflies

Wow I have not posted since Wed. well I have been pretty busy I re-did 2 flower beds in my yard and than a cook out yesterday with the family I also was having problems with my blog had to take off my followers for now I couldn't open my blog until I removed it.
I have one more little tidbit to share today before I get to my cards I saw a mother black bear with her 2 cubs today the mama was standing by the side of the road and the 2 babies where up the tree behind her. I swear I have to start carrying my camera everywhere I go.
Now for my cards Cuttlebug Challenge this past week was to use the heart and butterfly combo sets if you have them those I don't have so just did butterflies I also did Try a New Technique from Splitcoast Stampers which was a hinge card you can also check out a video on this tech by Wendy HERE. Yes they are addictive I did 2 of them.

I love these cards. They are very beautiful. I love the way the top of the card swings up to reveal the message.

Nice job on both of them. My favorite is the butterfly one though. This one is going on my list to try too. I would love it if you cased my teapot!

Yes, I was wondering where you were. It is so hard to get involved in life and not post. I know that route extremely well. Sometimes it is hard to get motivated after taking a couple of days off. Yikes!

Hubba Bubba, these cards are so so nice. I don't think they are busy at all, but ya know me :>

Your flower turned out awesome! Let's see some more.
