What's happening with the weather.... my brother had a BBQ on Saturday to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary(forgot to take a photo of the card) and my nieces 21st (not till October but she will be back at uni by then), the weather was beautiful till late afternoon when the heaven's opened luckily we had eaten by then and had to take cover....typical british

Onto my card which was for my husband's aunt, I have made a similar one but on a square card and thought this worked well with the oval.

As always thanks for your visit, it is always much appreciated.

Hope everyone is well, today cards is using Chloe's butterfly stamp again. Stamped on to acetate (again) and this time I used shabby pink embossing enamel. The flowers are delicate aster by Spellbinders and the greeting is Stampin Up.
Not got a recipient for it yet.

As always thanks for your visit.

Shutter card

Good morning..
It was a cracking weekend wasn't it, hubby went wild camping so I was left to my own devices......wonder what I

I've never successfully managed to make shutter or stepper cards before especially when having to make them from scratch, I've never been happy with the cuts and folds. 
I've seen the tattered lace one on telly and liked it but wasn't prepared to part with fifty quid ( I know there are a few dies in the set) so imagine my delight while visiting my local craft stall to find this press cut one (never heard of them before), not as many dies but it was enough for me and I'll certainly be adding some more of them . 
So I had a play and created this card for a friend at work whose birthday is Tuesday (we get cakes as and I have a few more on the go.

Well thanks for your visit, I really do appreciate it.....

Hello again, hope you are all well. 

What's up with the weather, this time last week we were tempted to put the heating on at work and this week it's been a bit hot.

So on to this weeks card, I've used a chloe stamp for the butterflies and then stamped onto acetate and  cut the butterflies out,the flower stamp is a Sheena Douglas with a bit of glitter. 
Not sure of the recipient yet, my niece will be 21 in October and she likes purple so I may add 21 and us it....we'll see.

Thanks for your visit, I really do appreciate it.
