About Me

My photo
Hi, my name is Terri. I started crafting at an early age when my grandmothers taught me how to crochet and embroider on dish towels. Over the years I've tried many other crafting mediums, and have found my favorite in rubber stamping. My wonderful guy (Craig) supports me in everything I do........I'm very blessed!! I love learning new things and hopefully will inspire others to step out of their comfort zone and try a few new things. Thanks so much for stopping by....have a wonderful day!

MFP Simple Salutations #116 - Things With Wings

The first thing that came to mind when I saw the challenge title for this week was BUTTERFLIES! I think I have more butterfly stamps than any other thing in my stash.  I like the way they just flitter around looking like they don't have a care in the world!

The colors in this picture didn't turn out quite right, but it's the best I could get it.  The background is supposed to be more green.  I like this sketch - a nice layout for many types of cards!
