butterflies on my mind

i chanced upon some yummy butterflies some time ago on Ali's blog and me being me, I couldn't resist doing something of the same thing! I checked out the link Ali gave to purchase the butterflies, but found out that other people beat me to the punch! (absolutely no pun intended!) yep! there was nothing more to be had from good ole Martha's site :(

I searched high and low, until I finally found them on ebay (where else?). At the time, I wasn't too keen on bidding for some reason (the punchers were going for about $4.99).

Then about 2 weeks ago, I suddenly had the inclination to finally get them. Too late, there weren't that many people selling so I couldn't get them for a decent price - several people had already upped the ante and there was no other option but to bite the bullet!

Several girls have asked me about the butterfly that I used on one of my recent LOs - that's actually a stamped image of a butterfly which I merely hand cut. Thanks for your wonderful comments! That's one of my current favorites too! =)
