Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving
friends, and visitors.
I do hope you are enjoying your weekend, and

I also had a phone call from the hospital
offering me another appointment, and guess

The card and image used is a Hunkydory
Autumn Butterfly one from about 3 years ago.
The image came in 3 sections so I used

but it doesn't show in the photo.
I cut out my butterflies and coloured them with
Rusty Hinge, Pine Needles, DI, and also
Archival Ink Potting Soil.
I added some gold stickles to them too.
I also cut out my leaves, with some snippets card, and distress inked some, and used stickles and Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow Glitter on them.
The inside corners were made from the left
over pieces of the front corners, and one I had
Thank you so much for your visit and the
