Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you have all acclimatised to the cooler weather once again, all four of our children asked to have the heating on last night! They were told to go and get a jumper, heating on in June, whatever next?! I will admit to going and getting a hot wheat bag to take to bed as Paul is on nights and boy is that bed chilly with out him, I think it's not having something to tuck your feet under that makes it seem colder, my circulation is quite poor so my feet are a nightmare to keep warm, I think it's hereditary as my mum's toes always look blue/ purple and two of my girls have been diagnosed with Reynauds, poor Sophie suffered with Chilblains all winter. I wonder if we'll get to wear Flip-flops before August?!
Today's card is a a very 'girly' pink card. One thing I really Love about Stampin'Up! Is that they have everything you need in each colour, so you can buy Ink pad, Card, Designer Paper and Ribbon, jewels etc in every colour, so there is no trying to find card to match your ink of pretty papers, that has all been done for you. This card is stamped in 'Powder Pink' and 'Pear Pizazz',
If you haven't guessed by now that's my favourite green !
The Stamp set is Butterfly Basics, which I initially bought just for the gorgeous Fern leaf, although I have grown to love every element.
There are matching Butterfly dies that go with the set, which I used to die cut the two butterflies. I stamped my Sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments and punched it out, embellishing with a tiny pink rose. I then added some twine tied in a bow and a rose to the centre of my butterfly.
I hope you like my card.
Janet, I hope you have time to relax a little today, before you go knitting and Nattering. XXX
Margaret, I hope you have a quieter day too, xxx
Lilian, I think your job is kind of special so I wonder if you'd miss it if you stopped all together, is there no way you could cut down gradually? I'm pretty sure that between your garden, sewing and stamping /card making will keep you fairly busy. XXX
Have a lovely day ladies, whatever you are up to,
Love and hugs
