Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loveing
friends and visitors.
I do hope you all feeling okay and to anyone who
is under the weather or in pain big crafty hugs
being sent your way.
Here's hoping you will soon be feeling fine.

Well this week has gone really quickly again.
Thank crunchie it's Friday as the advert used to say.
 Mmmmmmmm I love chocolate so you can see
why I remembered that advert.

I have a quick card today that I have never shown
at least I don't think I have, but the old brain is
getting a little forgetful now so forgive me if I 


I used the Cupcake CD Floral Delights for the
The butterfly is  a Spellbinders Die with added 
The shape is layers of Spellbinders Labels 24
layered up.
In hindsight I should have used a better 
sentiment shape instead of the peel offs,
but we all learn from our mistakes.

Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you all have a fabulous Friday.
Keep crafting.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Morning Jenny, A lovely card, the background paper is really pretty, and the butterfly is gorgeous, also loving the bow. The sentiment done with peel-offs at least doesn't detract from the focal element, I think it looks lovely.
It's raining here, been raining all night and is still raining, yucky !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Morning Jenny, love the jewels on the butterfly. I live up north like Patricia, so the same weather here, and it's forecast rain in some form or other over the next 4 days. Your water butt would be full and overflowing up here! Take care.

Lovely easel card Jenny and I like the way you used the die cuts to form that large blossom focal point. We had a bit of rain in the night but nothing to shout about. However it did fill the water butts because we a very large roof, together with the garage, carport etc. Hope yours comes soon but only in the night. Love and hugs from Christine xx

Hi Jenny
Beautiful card. I have had some acetate sat in my stash for a year but have not been brave enough to use it yet. Certainly don't think I could do as good a job as you have.
Best wishes
