Hi to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.

Feeling back to normal now, and went out yesterday to have my hair cut, and my toe nails cut and painted for my Granddaughter's wedding on the 6th of May.
I still have to make her wedding card ooooaaahhh.
She has chosen Peach for the Bridesmaids, and I really have had problems finding Peach card, and Peach things, not a popular colour at the mo.

Right I have just finished my card to enter the Allsorts Challenge.
This time it's I Spy something beginning with B so I have used a Nbus book stamp I have had for quite a while, and then I stamped butterflies on the pages.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I started by inking my white matting card with Colour Cloud Rose Blush ink.
Then I stamped some butterflies very lightly onto it, and used a white gel pen to make the dots. 
I stamped out my book 4 times for the pages, and then coloured them with the same colour cloud ink and white gel pen for the dots.
I stamped some butterflies to the pages with Memento Rose Bud Ink.
Just realised I should have put a black matt under the pink matting.
It's funny how you only realise it when you are putting it on the blog.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

A fabulous pink creation Jenny, a great stamp and lovely design. Must have taken you ages to make this.
Glad you posted today as I had a sudden Senior moment this morning, I honestly can not remember if I thanked you for the JL Easter card, if I didn't I am so very sorry and thank you very much it was lovely and also that you thought of me. If I did then put it down to - well anything you want.
