Ten Minute Tuesday!


Don't you love this Elegant Butterfly Punch? It does add a touch of elegance all on it's own, which is exactly why I chose it for today's Ten Minute Tuesday! To add a little background interest I heat embossed three small butterflies in the background in white. Hope you can see them! The lighting this time of year is so interesting and changes from day to day so had a tough time getting them to show well. But they're there! You could also stamp them with a color.... ooh, that's a good idea! I'll be right back with that.

Alrighty! Now we can get started.... I actually rewrote the tutorial using pictures of this card instead.  Saved a minute by not having to emboss, too!

Did you notice I traded a card out for a piece of chocolate?
Wouldn't it be fun to have one of these show up on your desk on a Monday morning? Maybe you could start a new tradition! They make wonderful party favors also.

My favorite chocolate ..... dark chocolate with sea salt!
Just found it at our new Whole Foods here in Boise.
It's the best and a small piece each night finishes off the day very nicely, thank you.

As I do each Tuesday, here's the link for your free PDF tutorial.
