Butterflies at Tag Tuesday

A fun little tag for Louise's Tag Tuesday "Butterflies" challenge over at Kard Krazy.  If you like butterflies, (even just a little bit) you will want to check out Louise's *gorgeous* butterfly tag book - Oh! My!  Absolutely stunning. (Be sure to check the challenge post and her newer post, which shows the inside.)

For my tag, I used my new Butterflies 2 Defined stamp from Red Lead (they are *so* becoming one of my fave companies, I tell ya.... another addiction), and some absolutely yummy paper from Crate Paper (the new Restoration Line, makes my mouth water).  Some Copics, lots of distressing (in both ink and edge distresser form), some rub-ons, some brads, some crochet trim, some vintage text.... all favorites. 

Hope you're having a fantastic weekend - the weather here is gorgeous (finally "only" in the 80s, LOL!).  I'm being naughty and doing nothing but reading outside on the deck, crafting, and watching the US Open (go Roger!).  Hope you're getting inky. :)

First thanks for your sweet comment on my blog about my one and only scrapling ... sorry!! Your scraplings are beautiful!! And, your tag is wonderful!! I am seeing more and more of Red Lead around the Internet. Not bad for a little local shop, right here in St. Louis!! I used to shop there and take classes there all the time but once they moved I just never visited their new store. Now, I think I will have to!!!
