Myra's beautiful butterfly Card
Today's card is just so beautiful, created by our dear Myra, Myra I think you have designed
Such a stunning card, it's clean and simple, which highlights perfectly the stunning dies, which are
Of course Creative Expressions Majestic Monarch, I fell in love with this die when you used it many months ago on a set of boxed notelets and have been ever since, you really know how to show this die at it's very best.
The addition of a few of Sue Wilson's Peony dies, both open and complete petals and the little touch of Trailing Ivy, also designed by Sue Wilson of Creative Expressions, gives the perfect finishing touch. I love the colour you have chosen as well Myra, thank you so much for sharing thus stunning card with all of us xxx
Well today is supposed to be a day of rest, right??? Well not here, we have a football tournament today, thankfully this afternoon, I really wasn't keen on going but the girls said that they would like me to watch so I kind of have to go, I am desperate to get in the craft room, although I think my mojo my have buried itself on the beach in Spain!
I can do some crafting tomorrow when I am home alone, Paul was supposed to be away, thankfully it got cancelled as I am a little to dependant physically at the moment, after almost three days in the car, the last day (was supposed to be a couple of hours journey for an early afternoon ferry) but we got caught on the motorway in the centre of Paris behind 1512 tractors taking part in a demonstration because of the low prices of various produce! The chose the main route to Ch. de Gualle airport and Calais, we were sat for over two hours, we therefore missed our ferry and ended up getting home at ten at night rather than tea time ! I have to say that my husband rarely swears about anything, which made it more of a shock when he decided to honk the horn many times and shout the most colourful language at the farmers as we passed, the look on the girls faces was a picture, followed by fist pumping and "go Dad" !!!
So that day we were in the car for almost 18 hours!! Ouch is all I will say! The other reason I was relieved is because he is away all week next week! Thank goodness Sue and Pat are both home!
Well I must get organised, the post holiday Roast Dinner is on the menu today, I do miss proper vegetables when we are away.
Karen, I hope your run goes well today, you go girl!!!! Xxx
