Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

Had a really bad day yesterday was so tired from lots of coughing throughout the night and day I just wanted to sleep all the time in between the coughing bouts.
I am on my third week of this coughing, and I feel like it's never going to end.
In any rate enough of my complaining as there are some people a lot worse off than me, but it does help sometimes to have a moan.

Later in the evening I did manage to play for a short while with my John Lockwood media plates again so I can join the Butterfly Challenge which I haven't managed to do for a few of the challenges lately.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I used memento inks to ink up my media plate then I used a feather to give it some texture.
Lastly I stamped some butterflies, and a wave sentiment that was a freebie stamp form a craft mag. 
A very quick card to make.

Thank you so much for your visit, and your precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Sorry to hear you are still feeling rough it's horrible when you have a cough and all you want to do is go to sleep :( Dont forget I'm usually awake in the silly hours myself if you ever want to message me on fb or something for someone to chat to ;)
Take care of yourself,
Hugs Kaz xx

So beautiful Jenny! Love your palette, these colours work so well together. Your focal panel is lovely with the blending and the subtle butterfly images, and I adore how you carried the theme to background as well. So gorgeous. hugs :)

You have a good moan Jenny. There's quite a lot I feel like moaning about at the moment. Seriously though I do hope you will soon be feeling better. There seem to be so many people with that sort of thing at the moment.

Your card is lovely. The colours are pretty and it's a lovely sentiment. Barbxx
