Thinking of You

Good morning my crafty friends and followers

Monday morning the sun is shining even though it is chilly and sat here in my craft room what a perfect start to the week.  After a busy weekend at the craft show in Leigh with Kay Rutter it is nice to be playing again.  I have a quick post for you all today as I have a really busy week this week with DT work etc but will be posting everyday as usual.  You just have to take a couple of hours a day to craft for yourself.  I hope you all have a fabulous Monday.


Recipe & Method

1.  Base card was a sheet of A3 which I cut to A4.  This card I bought from My Craft Studio in a pack with small spots on one side and big spots on the other.  There was a range of colours too.
2.  I added a strip of white and lilac striped card along the centre of the card then added the sentiment "Thinking of You" from my stash.
3.  The butterflies are from Cuttlebug and I forgot I had them!  I cut three out and then embossed them all using the different embossing folders that came with the die cut.  These have been cut out using a scrap piece of mutted pearlescent card I found in my stash.  I have then placed them on the card.
This was a quick and simple card to make as I wanted something that was clean and simple.  I found it really difficult to this type of card as I do love adding other embellishments to my cards.

Thank you for stopping by Today
