I'm Kickin' it Old Skool

.......with The Greeting Farm that is.  The challenge was to use an older stamp/set (June/July 2009 and prior).  I had many ideas for this challenge, but haven't gotten around to any of them as I ended up really sick this week.  I think I have bronchitis, which doesn't appear to be going away anytime soon, so in between coughing constantly, chills from the fever and all over body aches, I have been really dragging.  Unfortunately that means I haven't been in the craft room this week either, well until today....I just had to get in there for awhile and make something.     
Instead of using an image as a focal point I used a saying from the now retired "Butterfly Wishes" set and added a couple punched butterflies to it.  To carry on the butterfly theme I added a panel of larger punched butterflies.  The papers are from My Minds Eye and have been stitched on the background edges.  I used two different Martha Stewart butterfly punches as well as a SU scallop border punch.  

I would also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Fab n' Funky - "Quote Me Happy" - use a longer quote
Gingersnap - GC70 Spicy Supply "Punches"
AiFactory - "Anything Goes" 
Charisma Cardz - "Anything Goes"
Crafty Sentiments - "Use Your Scraps" - all the DP used was scraps I pulled out of my drawer
Crafty Catz - "Stitching"
Allsorts - "Use at least 3 punches"
Sweet Stampin Challenge - "Stitching"
Ooh La La Creations - ""Sentiment" - use sentiment as your focal point
Tuesday Taggers - "It Takes All Sorts" - anything

Ok, time for me to get back into bed....I ache all over again.


Have a great day :)
