Cute Card Thursday #130 and Kickin' it Old Skool with The Greeting Farm

Hellooooo out there.....Yesterday was such a fun day, with the Phindy's place Blog Hop.... The Christmas cuties are So darn Cute, and are available now at Phindy's Shop.  You still have time to hop along, if you are interested. 
All you have to do is just start back at

I promise that you will be saying "Awwww, how cute" all the way through the hop.  =)

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.  I know that I am.  I had a little bit of time last night, to spend crafting, so of course I decided to play along with this weeks Farm Fresh Friday over at The Greeting Farm.  TGF is "Kickin' It Old Skool"  I thought this would be a very cool idea, so I just HAD to use my Hello Ian stamp, and get right to work. 

While working on the card, I decided that I didn't want to use flowers on it, but rather something else, as an embellishment, so I used some pop up butterflies that I had gotten last year as a Christmas gift.  I rarely use them, and thought, Hmmmm, why not use some here?

Little did I know that when I decided that, I would then be able to enter this card into this weeks "Cute Card Thursday Challenge".  They want to see either a "Tweet" or a "Flutter"  using either birds, or butterflies, so there we go.....

My "Fluttering" TGF Old Skool card.

I did a little bit of paper piecing here, on Ian's hat, and scarf.  The papers that I used for this card are from Basic Gray called "Origins".  I colored my image using Copics, and the butterflies are from K&Company.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and checking out my "TGF Old Skool card".
