Simple Butterfly card

Good Morning Ladies, 

Welcome into June, lets hope we get some sunnier weather, yesterday definitely had a chill in the air .
We had our hair cut yesterday and I had some colour though, I went a little lighter this time,  Paul and the girls seem to like it, although I have to ask Paul as he is a man of few words and  doesn't notice subtle changes! I have been tempted to die my hair bright pink and cut into a mohawk to see if he notices that!  πŸ€£πŸ˜… 

Today's card is a very simple design, I saw something similar on Pinterest,  so I sat and had splay on Sunday morning, I die cut a circle into a piece of scrap copy paper (thin as possible), I then trimmed it down to fit my card size and laid it over, I took my SU Dictionary stamp and stamped through the circle aperture in my scrap paper.  This gave me my base card,  it took me a while to find a sentiment that was the right font etc but went for "thinking of you " in a very simple font.
I stamped and punched out the butterfly and used my Zig Clean colour pens to colour it in.  I used 3 tiny black gems to adorn the butterflies body and adhered him to the centre of the stamped  circle.
I really like this super simple design, I hope you do too. 

I hope that you are  having a lovely day, 

Love and hugs to all of you,

    Hope everyone is having a good day whatever you’re doing.

  4. Hello Sandra and everyone,
    I LOVE LOVE LOVE your card it is really beautiful and the sentiment is perfect.
    PET scan was fine, I will get the results when I go back for my clinic appointment in a weeks time, fingers crossed all will be OK
    SANDRA men don’t you just love them - they do not notice things like hair cuts. He might just notice if you have a Mohawk style!! πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

    Take care everyone and stay safe, hugs Brenda xxx
