About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.
The lovely banner was made especially for me by Amanda at Faery Ink Art & Design when I won her first blog challenge. family:";">

Outlawz Sunday Songs & Rhymes - Butterfly

 Outlawz Sunday Songs & Rhymes

Be inspired by the The Butterfly Song (If I Were a Butterfly) Psalty & Ernie Rettino

If I were a butterfly
I'd thank you, Lord, for giving me wings
And if I were a robin in a tree
I'd thank you, Lord, that I could sing
And if I were a fish in the sea
I'd wiggle my tail, and I'd giggle with glee
But I'd just thank you Father for making me me
'Cause you gave me a heart
And you gave me a smile
You gave me Jesus
And you made me your child
And I just thank you Father for making me me
If I were an elephant
I'd thank you, Lord, by raising my trunk
And if I were a kangaroo
I'd just hop right up to you
And if I were an octopus
I'd thank you, Lord, for my good looks
But I'd just thank you Father for making me me

Our sponsor is Oddball Art

I have used We are 3 papers from Rainbow Skies and Spring Butterflies paper sets
We are 3 sentiment from Miracles sentiment set
I printed Odd Ball Stamp Image No 204 Skyler and Friends large, coloured it with chalks, markers and gel pen.  Then scanned it and reduced it down to fit on my card.

I hope you will go over and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.
