Something to Brighten Your Day ......
Good Morning Ladies,
A little something to brighten your day today from me!! I have had this 'Butterfly Gala' stamp set since before Christmas and the Gingham Gala Papers too but I haven't got round to playing with them, so while Paul was busy doing his accounts on the Lap Top last night and sat and played.
The background stamp I used is from a stamp set called 'Tempting Textures', I popped into my Stamperatus and stamped all of my backgrounds, just wiping the stamp over between colours. I then stamped and punched out all of the butterflies in matching colour card and ink. I placed my stamped background back in the Stamperatus and placed the butterfly where I wanted it to be, while holding it in place I positioned the little 'antenna' stamp and the sentiment, then removed the butterfly, inked up the stamps and stamped those onto each colour background. I added a little glue to the back of the Butterfly and placed him onto the card so that the 'antenna' where positioned correctly.
I took four little Rhinestones and stuck them down the length of the butterfly's abdomen.
To finish the card I inked the edges with matching ink and popped the toppers onto a piece of matching Gingham paper and then on to a little notecard.
The colours I used for these cards are:
Lemon Lime Twist
I hope this card brings a little sunshine into your day. xxx
Like Lilian our house was quite cold yesterday, everyone seems to migrate to the kitchen because the Aga stays on and really warms the room, it is the warmest room in the house by far, I quite like it because the kitchen becomes the social hub of the house rather than the girls being up in their bedrooms doing their own thing. The only down side is, when they are in the kitchen they eat! Sophie has taken a real interest in cooking lately too, which I love, there is no better way to bond and have fun with your children than when teaching them 'life skills'. They have no idea see as they didn't have compulsory 'Home Economics' like we had, we were taught everything from making a bed to ironing a shirt and then all of the basic cooking skills.
I am hoping to see Sue today, which will be so lovely, these weeks soon roll around don't they.!
I hope you have a lovely day however you are spending it,
Love and hugs to all of you,
