Butterfly!

Hello Everyone, how are you today, well I hope and enjoying some sunny warm weather.  Not Glastonbury of course and I'm just thinking of our crafty pal Flora here, she'll be getting good wear out of her fabulous floral wellies.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on Rebbeca, and yes it did take me ages to do it, it started life in Lei
th where I lived around 25 yrs ago, then it came to Musselbourgh with me for a few years and then I eventually finished it in Inverness, so all in all it was a work in progress for around 8years.

I don't tend to sew nowadays as my fingers tend to get quite sore, but maybe I'll take it up again, I also liked crosstitch.

A quiet day here, food shopping and a few chores around the house, but apart from that it's been a chilling sort of day, and here comes Alistair to settle down to watch the Mexico v Netherlands game, so time for me to move.
Here is my card for today;
I've made this card for my area manager who is leaving and I am quite vexed to see her go, she was very helpful last year when I was struggling at work and feel that she was very instrumental in my well managed return to work, and without that support I wouldn't have managed to continue there.

I've used LC stamps, I think they were one of the club stamp sets, I stamped the background and coloured it all with Promarkers, the Sentiment is part of the set.
Pearlised Torquoise Paper cut with SB Floral Ovel die Sentiment cut with another SB die, can't remember which one
Creative Expression Dazzler
Ribbon from my box
Liquid Pearls and Papermania gems
Glamour dust in Crystal

Well folks that's me for today, I hope you all enjoy the remainder of the weekend and see you soon,

Brilliant card Kate,
Love your background, I would never think of stamping and colouring for that. Love the central butterfly
I have been colouring over the weekend but nothing as good as your that's for sure.
Enjoy what's left of the evening
