Happiness is like a Butterfly

Hello! hope you are all OK and to those of you who aren't feeling too well at the moment I hope you all feel better soon.
My! is it just me or is it much colder right now it didn't seem too bad this morning I think I should go and click the heating on before I go any further as my little tootsies are a tad chilly.........................................
Aaahhhh! that's better and would you believe it I was accosted by a little black cat who had decided it was her feeding time so with that out of the way we can now get on with the important things Butterflies no less!

This week as you may have already gathered is nothing to do with Christmas Yes it's a stamp set from Woodware with a rather nice verse on it as the main feature along with two small butterflies. This stamp would work with any other images or dies of your butterfly collection and let's face it I've only ever met one person who had a dislike for them, don't understand it as I think they are so beautiful and look wonderful on your cards and other projects.

Here goes then have a look at what you will be making this week - : )

Card one is 8x8
 OK first of all I am going to apologise for the poor quality of the photo's this week something is wrong and I couldn't upload the photo's that I had edited so that you would get a better picture so instead I have had to send them again from my phone and they are not the best as the camera on my phone only works when it wants to, not to worry you know that they will look better when you get to class and see them for yourselves.
Well I hope so anyway lol!!!!

Distress Inks
Shabby Shutters
Mowed Lawn
The Butterfly Die is a Marianne Design CrafTables
and it cuts beautifully. I have used a green Mirror card on these two.

Card two.
I have stamped the verse in Black Versafine and embossed in Clear Powder 

The Background paper is from a 12x12 sheet of Basicgrey Wisteria called Lilly Kate and shares the name with one of my granddaughters.

I have used the two small butterflies to over stamp the paper with Dusty Concord and Shaded Lilac.

 I used my gold Spray and Sparkle over the stamped verse once I had distressed it in the lilac ink.
I don't know if you can see it or not but I did create a border on the background panel behind the verse with my Glue pen and some Crystal Glitter.

I did add another little sentiment to the bottom corner but that was after the photo.

This time I die cut the Butterfly out of Centura Pearl card and inked through the die with my lilac ink, sorry the pics aren't showing the details very well.
Once again like last time I have drawn some far from straight black lines to frame the verse and the background paper.

Well that's all folks as they say in La La Land!

See you soon  : )

P.S. Thought I just might share with you something that I started on Friday evening this is a Before photo and when it's finished I'll post an After photo for you to see it just needs it's glitter and embellishments to go on.

It's a folded Paper Book Christmas Tree.......

I have glittered it since these photo's were taken and die cut some small poinsettia flowers from the same pages of the book and inked them a little, think it's going to look really good when it is finished.......
