I made this card for the M.A.G. challenge by the page- challenge # 23. I also incorporated it into a Mother's Day card for the Celebrate the Occasion challenge # 11- Mother's Day. For the M.A.G. challenge you need to use the "Forever Young" Cricut cartridge, pg. 44 only. I missed last weeks challenge (shame on me), time got away from me, so I had to make sure I got this one done. For those that haven't done these, they are so much fun, you need to try one and you will see :) I think this butterfly should be called "ode to Gloria" because she oh so loves blue and I thought of her when I made it, lol.

I hope you can join in on the M.A.G. challenge and the Celebrate the Occasion challenge so we can see all of your lovely projects!! I hope you enjoy and have a wonderful day :)

*****AHHHHHHHHHHHH, I missed the M.A.G. challenge. For some reason I thought it ended on Thursday, but it ends on Wednesday night!!! Well, this is for CTO then, sorry M.A.G. (tear in my eye) ;)
