Butterfly Birthday

Hey

Where oh where has time flown by to?! After my last post we had the most glorious weekend here filled with sunshine and BBQs; there was no way I could stay in and get inky - you have to make the most of weather like that around here y'know!

So the working week starts: it's super busy in the full swing of exams now but we're on countdown for the half term until....I get sick! Yup, a student has taken sharing to a whole new level and now I'm feeling sooooooooooo groggy. I can't even bare the thought of crafting *gasp* and now I'm stuck at home, alone (seeing as no-one will come near me!) with lots of honey and lemon and sleep.

So apologies for going slightly MIA, but I am awake at the moment (even if I do feel like a zombie) and thought I best share a card with ya before y'all leave me!


This is another one of those cards I was commissioned to make for my friend and colleague at work (look out the the next one coming up soon ;D). I was totally inspired by this card by the oh so talented Nichole Heady; as soon as I saw that card, I knew I had to try it out for myself!

Card Recipe
Stamps: Butterfly Dreams
Ink: Fresh Snow/Dark Chocolate/Antique Linen Distress Ink
Cardstock: Kraft/Ripe Avocado
Paper: Bitty Box Basics Ripe Avocado
Accessories: Jute Ribbon Twine
/Promarkers

Before I love ya and leave ya, I just want to wish my super duper buddy, Emma a very Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday, my lovely! I hope you have a wonderful day!

Right then, I'm off to curl up with some more honey and lemon!

Catch ya later!

Awwwwhh sweetheart - who's gonna boogy on down the dancing queen ;D if not you. I will brave the germs and send you big hugs and kisses :D

You sure know how to make a gal feel special. I was so touched with your beautiful card and gifts, I think I am going to wear my super badge under my work uniform as it perfectly describes how I feel deep down inside :D

Truly a stunner of a card today, the plum looks ace with the artichoke.

Take care and thank you so much my sweet :D

So Sorry to hear you are unwell Aimes :( I hope you get your "Crafty Fingers" back soon. Enjoy the rest and think of all the lovely projects you'll be creating when you are back on your feet.
Your card is gorgeous, just saw it on APFP and loved it! I saw the idea on Capture the Moment and your take is just as lovely.
Take care, hugs Katie x
