Love is like a Butterfly…

It’s a blustery and rainy evening here, but my workshop is nice and warm and cosy, perfect for an evening crafting ๐Ÿ˜‰

I made this monochromatic card with the lovely papers that arrived the other day from Angel Crafts, I had a peek at their online shop at lunchtime today and they were loading all the new prima papers on, oh my goodness they are gorgeous, especially the botanical one!

There are a few different bits n bobs on this card, I especially love the sentiment ๐Ÿ™‚

The Journey is Your Reward…

This is the card I made last night, I nearly forgot all about doing a post for it, I was waiting on the rock candy stickles drying off and it missed the boat last night ๐Ÿ˜‰

There is a story behind the button… you see I was on Ustream and had the card turned around to the camera, then forgot which way round it was and glued the butterfly upside down to the bottom of the card, the paper ripped a wee bit, so I needed to put something down to “hide” the rip lol
