Good Morning Ladies,
I have made another Challenge card to inspire you all. I think that when we see animals as a theme we think 'cats, Dogs etc' but i did say that you could use any form of God's Creatures, Birds (i think we all have some kind of bird), Bees, Butterflies, fish absolutely anything. I hope that helps those of you that were still unsure of what to use.
The butterfly die I used is from a new set in the Stampin'Up! Catalogue, it comes with a stunning corner die too! Its called 'Springtime Impressions Thinlits'
I die cut the Butterfly out of a piece of Whisper White paper and then i took the piece of paper I die cut it from and embossed it with a Butterfly embossing folder. I then took a piece of white paper a fraction smaller and swiped all five of the New In Colours: Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple punch, Call Me Clover and Blueberry Bushel across the paper to form a stripe. I mounted the embossed piece on top of the inked card and placed the die cut back in to the place i die cut it from, i popped a couple of dimensionals on the body of the butterfly to raise him off the page slightly do that the rainbow stripes shining brightly behind the Butterfly.
I added three different sized Glitter Enamel Dots to the body of the Butterfly and covered all of the butterflies with Wink of Stella Glitter pen, i couldn't capture the glitter effect on camera though Sorry.
I hope you like my card and that you are slightly clearer about the challenge.
We had another Frog incident on Monday night/Tuesday morning! We had gone to bed and Paul was pretty much asleep as soon as his head hit the pillow, I am still suffering from our long journey, so I was still awake at 1.45am, for some reason Milo had just jumped off of our bed and i could hear him playing in the corner of our bedroom. I turned my tablet around and shone it on him to see what he was doing, at first all i saw was a clothes label tag, so I let him play, he then made a funny noise that i remembered from earler in the day, so i shone the light on him again to see what he was getting frustrated about, that's when i lost my composure, i watched him teasing another bloody Frog, in our bedroom, how the heck did it get there?!!
I woke Paul who remained calm apart from one point when it jumped really high, he jumped on the end of the bed because I screamed!!!!
Looking back it was funny, althougjh I was terrified at the time.
I had a lovely day with Sue yesterday and i get to do it all again today with Pat!!!
I hope you have a lovely day today too,
Love and Hugs
