My 'Things with Wing's ' Challenge card


Good Monday Morning Ladies, 

I hope you are all well and had a good weekend, after my marathon crafting session on Friday evening and Saturday creating the 'Nappy Cake' for Becca's friend, I took the rest of Saturday 'off' and just chilled out, I spent time with the girls cooking some different things for tea from Pinterest,  which was both fun and delicious!

Today's card is my first 'Things with Wings' Challenge card,  I sat and had a play with my Very Versaille stamp set (background), I found a piece of Anne Marie card, do you all still have some in your stash ??? ( if not i can supply you 🤣😜)! any way it was my favourite colour in their collection,  I have been looking for something to use it on, then i saw a card on Pinterest that used a similar colour card with red, so that was my inspiration.  I used SU 'Real Red' to   stamp the script,  Pear Pizazz (as my old Olive has ran out) for the leaves.  I stamped and punched out the butterflies and used Real Red Blends to colour them, adding a swish of sparkle pen over them too.  I stamped the sentiment and die cut it and used foam pads to raise it off background, I then added my butterflies and added three sparkles.                                                                     I do hope you like it my lovelies. 

I hope you all have a good day, it is forecast to be a little bit milder thank goodness  

Love and hugs to all of you,

  2. Morning Everyone
    Lovely card today SANDRA.

    I received a telephone call yesterday afternoon from one of my Cousins letting me know that Dad's youngest Brother had passed away. This now means that there is only one Sister left out of five Brothers and two Sisters. Sad times.

    The CAFE is OPEN ready and waiting for you all.
    HUGS are on their way to you all.TAKE CARE AND STAY SAFE.xxxx

    1. Sending you some extra hugs xx

    2. Sorry to hear this 😔 Sending hugs xxx

    3. JANET, Sorry to hear about your uncle. Sending you gently hugs. xxx

  3. Your card is lovely SANDRA I love the colours and that little pop of red
    My only bug bear (and I’ve only just noticed it) is that I don’t like seeing butterflies fly upside down for some reason - do I think they’re nosediving to their death? I don’t know (sorry)
    Take care all xx

  6. Hi Sandra and ladies
    Well I see blogger has removed my thinking of you that was originally for Janet. Then deleted my apology for doing so.
    Lovely card Sandra. I love butterflies, but I’ve done some flying upside down in error. I also have lots of Ann Marie card that is waiting to be claimed when we can all get together again.
    A very mild day today so I’ve been out for a walk and hung some washing on the line. Not much on the cards today.
    Take care everyone and stay safe.

  7. Hi ladies.
    Love the card Sandra, pretty colours but yes no for butterflies going up side down.
    Walk this morning much milder but now sitting here I feel absolutely frozen so heating will have to come up a bit.
    I hope the day is good for you all ,stay safe xxx

  8. Hello, wet today but a bit warmer.

    Sandra love your card, I’ve seen many a butterfly going downwards, especially to land on flowers, they seem to flutter in all directions.

    Have finished my card for this week,!!! Yes I know early for me, used my Christmas craft stuff as it hasn’t been put away yet.

    Hope you are keeping safe, the numbers are really frightening now, so let’s hope those idiots who don’t care take notice and do what they should. Loads of people out and about over the weekend.

    Hugs to all Lilian

  9. Hi everyone
    Sorry I didn’t get in yesterday, but a lovely selection of challenge cards on display.
    Love your card today, and the colour combo is great.
    A lot milder today, but the wind is chilly, or it might just be me as I can’t seem to get warm lately whatever I do!
    Hope you’ve all had a good day. Hugs to you all xxx

  10. Hello Sandra and ladies,

    Take care everyone and please stay safe. Love Brenda xxx
