Fluttering by with birthday wishes.

Hello folks and how are you today?
Another overcast day here in the North of Scotland, perfect crafting weather.

Today is is a special day for my lovely crafty friend Gayle.  I went to CHA with Gayle, Karen and Marlene seven years ago in Florida and we had a ball.  It was a real crafters holiday with all things crafty, shopping and lots of lovely grub.  Boy I have never giggled so much in a week.  It was lots of fun.
Anyway today it is Gayle's birthday, when I used this butterfly stamp a while ago she had mentioned that she'll like something similar for her special day.
It had to be done.  What are friends for?

I have water coloured the butterfly by SU using Tim Holtz distress inks, added black bling to the body and mat and layered onto corresponding card stock.

Gayle I hope you have a super day and the family spoil you rotten.  x

Guess what I got distracted yesterday and deliberately avoided the ironing so guess what excitement I have planned this afternoon, crampons out!  Can't wait.
I have also been having a few Internet issues so may be going dark over the next couple of days.  I have scheduled posts but don't worry if I don't get straight back to you.  It will be because I can't.
I shall hopefully get the issue sorted over the weekend.

That's all from me today, short and sweet.  I'm away now to dig out an oldie for tomorrow, are you joining me?

An absolutely beautiful card Erika and what a lovely big stamp that is. Your colouring is stunning. Gayle is bound to love it -especially as she put her order in hehe. I did that with a Christmas card from my friend last year!

So sorry I won't be able to join you tomorrow. I'm off to catch up with the dreaded HW now and then tied up for Friday and Saturday. Barbxx

What a stunning butterfly. Your watercolouring is fab. Good luck with the ironing. I need to get a job where I don't wear a uniform as that's the only thing I iron these days. When I worked for social services I didn't use my iron for 2 years. I had to dust it before I could use it to iron on a hem to a fancy dress costume! Can you train your boys to iron for you!??!
