Fly Abandonedly


"Spread your wings and prepare to fly //  For you have become a butterfly  //  Fly abandonedly into the sun  //  If you should return to me  //  We truly were ment to be  //  So spread your wings and fly Butterfly"~Mariah Carey's Butterfly


Happy Friday! I have two clean and crisp cards featuring the rub-ons and stickers available in the Artful Delight August Card Kit up over on the Artful Delight Blog today. I also have a few tips and tricks that I've learned about using rub-ons! {They aren't the pesky creatures I once thought they were!}
I'm gearing up for a busy crafty weekend, how about you?
