Polka Dot Butterfly Birthday Wishes!

Happy New Year everyone!!! Hope everyone enjoyed their time off. I managed to get 2 weeks off and I can't believe I only have 2 days left!! Tomorrow I'll be spending the entire day helping my brother and sister-in-law move into their new house. So really, that leaves me ONE day left!!! I definitely didn't get to do all that I wanted. Organizing my stamps will take a lot longer than I anticipated. I did manage to sew new curtains though! 
So over Christmas I made some Christmas cards for my good friend Leslie. She loved them so much that she requested a pack of birthday cards for her boyfriend's mom. Here's one of the cards that was part of the 8 pack. I still remember hating butterflies when I was at my very first Stampin' Up! workshop. Perhaps it was just a stamp that didn't appeal to me. I'm loving the Big Shot butterfly die!
