You put the happy in my day....

I know I've been missing in action lately, I have a lot going on and really have had no extra time to take a deep breath let alone get busy in the craft room.  I was however, able to whip up this quick tag card using a By LORi Designs (Bug & Roo) image I already had coloured up months ago.  I love it when that happens!  It's not from the new release but from the adorable Bug & Roo stamp line.  Her name is Vivi2 and can be found {HERE}
The really cool thing about digital images is that you can cut them out using your Silhouette machine!!!  I found a great tutorial on the internet and got busy a while ago playing around.  She turned out quite big (approx. 4" high), but how cool is it to have a perfectly cut out image!!!  I  love how she turned out, even if after I coloured her up, her hair (to me) looked like popcorn... 

I've recently come into possession of a massive amount of paint chips.  I couldn't see them go to waste and I've seen some really cool and fun creations using them.  I used a Stampin' Up Butterfly  punch (thanks Ria ;) and a variety of  colourful paint chips to create this multi layered butterfly to accent my card.
Don't forget to check out the By LORi Designs Blog to see what the rest of the design team have to show you today!  You'll think spring is in the air! 
Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!
