Good Morning Ladies,
Firstly I want to send hugs to Janet, I was so sorry to read your sad news yesterday, there are only 2 of the 8 siblings of my Mum alive now so I understand how you feel, its so sad to see a generation disappear, hugs coming your way my lovely.
Now I apologise for anyone offended by my 'multi-directional' Butterflies, after seeing your comment I went and did a bit of research and I want to reassure you that butterflies can fly in all directions including downwards, so just imagine that there is a delicious Honeysuckle bush in bottom corner of card and it is flying to drink some delicious Nectar. I hope that puts your minds at rest, for instance there were plenty of cabbage whites flying over the garage roof to swoop down onto my cabbage plants. 🤣😆😉
Today's card features a majestic Dragonfly, for this card I really wanted to use Navy and yellow (no idea why, it was just on my mind). So I stamped the background in Daffodil Delight, I added some Night of Navy dots too. I stamped the detail part of Dragonfly in Daffodil Delight too, then die cut the detail top layer in Night of Navy card and glued them together. I decided to die cut one of my SU Stitched Nested Labels, to mount the Dragonfly on, to lift it off the background. To finish the card I added a piece of Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon and I took a piece of white twine and coloured it with Daffodils Delight Blend (alcohol marker), I tied this over the Gingham ribbon and tied a knot. I thought the Dragonfly needed some sparkle so I gave him a swish of glitter pen! What do you think? (I am going to add sentiment as I need it.
Paul and I had a great day 'working' in the 'Office' aka 'My Craft Room', although he had 3 meetings during the morning so I had to be 🤫 quiet. !! Lol I have to say that I am sure he drinks a lot more tea at home than he does at work.!! I am looking forward to working alongside him again today.
I hope you have a lovely day too,
Love and hugs to all of you,
