Good Morning Ladies,
Well I did eventually manage to get into my craft room yesterday afternoon, I needed to make my Notelets for the swaps over on the fb group, so I made myself go and sit in there until they were done.
I then made this card too which was on the same theme as some of the Notelets.
I embossed a piece of Melon Mambo card with the Lace Dynamic Embossing folder, then to highlight some of the detail I used a dauber and added a little Spun Sugar Distress Oxide across the raised areas. To create a base for my Butterflies to sit I stamped the largest Doily from the Dear Doily Stamp set, I used Perfect Medium to stamp with and added an Opal Mica powder to give a subtle pattern in the background. Before I adhered the doily I added a piece of the White Dotted Tulle ribbon across my card and then put the die cut vellum piece on top.
I stamped one large and 2 small butterflies from the Beauty Abounds stamp set, I stamped first onto white card that I had blended some Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink onto, using Melon Mambo ink and the repeated but stamping onto Vellum, to create an extra layer of wings for my butterflies.
I arranged the butterflies onto my card and added some sparkles to them all.
The sentiment is one of Sue Wilsons and I die cut it twice out of white card inked with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink.
I hope you like my card.
Believe me, when I had finished the card and notelets I was ready for a lie down, I am getting so frustrated at both the pain and feeling so unwell, but never mind.
Paul came home with a lovely gift from a lady that he works with, it was a jigsaw puzzle, she said that it would hopefully help keep my mind off of Google!! So thoughtful, I must make a thank you card for her today.
That's all from me today my lovelies, Thank you all so much for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers, I really appreciate it.
Love and hugs to all of you,
