Good Friday Morning Ladies,
Have any of you got Snow, it has been forecast so many days this week I have stopped getting up, all excited to peek out of the curtains and see no more than a hard frost, I think part of it is the excitement of Paul having a 'snow day' , the roads around us are far to minor to be gritted, but Paul is very conscientious, so it would have to be completely impassable for him to not go in, however I do always say ''well make sure you can get back'' other wise I would have had to do a rescue mission on my 'Scooter'' 🤣🤣🤣
Can you picture it??? Snow piled up on the sides of the road, Paul stranded and frustrated that he couldn't get home, then out of the blizzard I appear on my scooter coming to the rescue!!!😂😂😂
Yay, Snow Day!!!
Anyway on to today's card, I am in a 'flourishing' phase at the moment, I have had the set of flourishes I used today for years but have never used them, they are by Inkadinkado, this set is called 'Dot Flourishes' I like the fact that it kind of leaves places for you to add pearls or sparkles....
So I cut a card base to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 in white card and then cut a mat of Balmy Blue, I stamped one of the flourishes in versamark (clear) ink and added some white embossing powder and heat set (I always use an anti static bag when used coloured E powder). I heat set it and added a few different sized gemstones. Next I die cut my butterfly, I cut two one in Whisper White, the other in Balmy Blue and glued them together, I decided on the position I wanted to use and glued the butterfly in place, making sure I folded the top wings so they popped up a little from the bottom.
To finish the card I added some gemstones down the back of the Butterfly and then die cut my sentiment. I then decided that the card looked a little bare so I randomly stamped some tiny butterflies around the card.
I hope you like it. xx
I received the most amazing 'Happy Mail' yesterday, after I did the Pocket Letter Swap with Danielle a lovely lady called Kay (kayzeekins cross) on youTube and Facebook contacted me and asked me if I would like to do a swap with her, so of course I agreed. Well her swap arrived yesterday and OMG it is so beautiful, there are so many lovely things that I cannot wait to share with you tomorrow, I will be doing a YouTube video on it as well. Receiving something like that really does brighten your day.
So thank you Kay if you look in xxx
I will be busy in my craft room again today, what are you all up to??
Sending Warm Snuggly Hugs to all of you,
