It's FFFFFFriday, time to share an old crafting project.

Good morning all, and how are you enjoying summer this week?
Isn't it great to get the sun on your skin, the day just seems so much better for it.

Thank you for joining me today, if you haven't, it would be great if you could find the time to come along and play too.  It is all for fun and just about sharing an old crafty project, something you have made yourself.
The more the merrier and I will visit all that join in, just leave a wee comment below so I know you are playing along.

Today in honour of the sunshine and the lovely weather we have had this week I have a bright and breezy card for you.

For this card I have used papers from MME Miss Caroline, isn't it cute?  I love the little butterflies.  The sentiment is Inkadinkadoo Thoughts for the day and the Spellbinder dies are D-lites Ornamental tags two and Les Papillions two with pearls to finish.
In the Papillion set of dies you two dies of each butterfly I have used one to cut the butterfly paper and the other to cut the butterflies.  One cuts a clear butterfly shape and the other cuts a filigree butterfly.

I love this sentiment and who wouldn't like those butterfly dies and papers?  Just yummy, so yummy I really didn't want to use them!
Do you have paper like that?  So yummy you really just want to keep it.  
Spoken like a true papercrafter, you know what I mean don't you?  If you are not a papercrafter, right now you just think I am a complete weirdo!  LOL.  
I could do far worse things in life.

It's a weekend off work for me, yippee.  
Another dine in weekend at work so it will be so busy, I shall be thinking of my colleagues.  
I have plans for both Saturday and Sunday but more of that later.  It only remains for me to wish you all the best for the next couple of days, more from me tomorrow.  x

Morning Erika, yes a bright and cheerful card with those beautiful papers and gorgeous butterflies, definitely a card with a summer feel to it. Those stroking papers you were talking about - I have plenty of those and yes my family look at me as if I've gone crackers too. Hope you have a fabulous day, we have glorious sunshine here at the moment but are in for some storms later so I shall make the most of it while I can. Off to the post office shortly to post an exciting package!?!
