Silhouettes at the Sisterhood

It's that time again. The Sisterhood's challenge this week is silhouettes. With alost no exceptions, all of my silhouette images are floral...and I've never even inked up this stamp before!

 So my Essence of Love stamp finally saw some ink, as did the sentiment, which is from Verve's Happy Hello. I sponged a little around the sentiment, pulled out this butterfly that I'd totally forgotten about and highlighted around it with a Spica Glitter Pen. The patterned papers were some old ones from my collection of neverending paper.

Get over to the Sisterhood and show us your best Silhouette creation!

Did I mention this was a Viva La Verve Sketch? Week 2 baby! I'm hoping to get all of them done by tomorrow. Yep - last minute as usual. LOL Seems sometimes the ol' mojo works best that way.

I haven't been around blogland much - been running, riding (bikes and horses), trying to get stuff done and the most time consuming, travelling for work. I'm really tired of Calgary =)

I'm hoping to get around more - and training up for a 10 miler right before we head off to San Francisco and Napa, which I'm almost counting down the days for now. I absolutely need a vacation!

I was really hoping this card would make it to it's intended receiver with plenty of time to spare, but life happened and now it won't make it for probably another few days, but at least the intent was there?! LOL

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday. Thanks so much for stopping by.
