{Special Post} Say It Big with Beautiful Butterflies by Melissa + 25% Off on Select Products + A Giveaway

Hey, STAMPlorations friends! We have a special post today -- courtesy of STAMPgirl Melissa, who created 11 butterfly-themed cards. Plus we've got a special sale starting today until September 30 and a giveaway found at the end of this post.

Hi, STAMP friends! Melissa here again. I'm back in from the farm fields and flower gardens for a quick post with 11 bold butterfly-ful cards to share with you today.

If you were here before for my Bold Birds post you'll know that I've been spending lots of time outside this year. My husband and I have started a farm, "Promised Land Farm," and we've been doing a lot of work to get the farm started.  We have been enjoying starting some flower gardens for our own enjoyment and to attract the many pollinators that we have flying and fluttering around.

Our daughters have also been collecting Monarch butterfly larvae and we have been enjoying seeing the Monarch butterflies emerging from their Chrysalides.

So, in honor of our fluttery friends, here are the 11 cards that I have to share with you. I love all of the featured products and thoroughly enjoyed making these cards. Once again, in keeping with my busy season of life and the need to be in the fields and gardens, I'm going to simply share my cards with you. Please see the end of this post for product links. Thanks and enjoy!

Once again, I'm sure you can tell how much fun I had with these lovely products! I had originally planned on making 6 cards, but was flooded with a flutter of ideas. I really had to make myself stop because I had other things to tend to in my life! These products are so much fun though!! I hope that you'll come visit me at my blog and Instagram to see more of these cards.

If you are looking for me I'll be in the gardens and fields! 

Grace and Peace, Melissa
