Chasing Butterflies



Hello!!! Happy Friday!! On Monday I was telling you about The Secret Bunny swap on the Magnolia-licious yahoo group. (While you are there, please notice the beautiful homepage card made by my cyber friend Jacque! She inspired me to buy some eyelet lace to try on a card.)
Well here is a picture of the clear paint can that I decorated and filled with goodies for my partner, Patricia. Patricia received it yesterday, so I knew I could post it today. She said "even my husband was impressed". LOL! I know that if I can impress a husband then my work was worth it! LOL!

All images are part of the Chasing Butterflies collection that can be pre-ordered at Magnolia-licious, the store.

You can click on any of the images below to see them larger.

Some close ups of the can:


can you see the glitter on her wings?



Glitter on the bees wings too. Never too much glitter! LOL!


Can you see the the butterflies that I punched from DP? They are also glittered. and double layered so that the wings are folded up and not glued down.


On the top I made it so that the "card" was part of the can. Shown below is with the ribbon, then untied and open to see the inside where I wrote my message. :







The Back:


I hope that you enjoyed this! I have some small clear paint cans kicking around here...I think I might decorate a few and give them to some of the kids I like to give Easter goodies to. See, sometimes it works to my advantage to be a hoarder! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Have a Delightful Weekend!!
