Butterfly and Roses

Hello from a rather soggy South Coast.
I am sure someone is having a laugh and joke with all this rain.
Told hubby I need my craft area incorporated into the ark he needs to build.
I know I complain a lot when I over heat but surely there is a happy medium lol
This card has been created for this week Allsorts challenge of Roses and is another made using the beautiful Bobunny freebie from Septembers Cardmaking and papercraft.
I think this has been my favourite set of papers since the Forever love ones from Forever friends.
The stamps used are also from the same freebie.
The flowers are from the huge stash the hubster got for me for my birthday.
I am going to hate it when they run out.
Lots of glitter and pink pearls added and a lace ribbon along the bottom.
I am also adding this into a DT call so wish me luck and keep your fingers crossed for me :)
Decided it was time I tried to get back onto a couple now as I really miss it lol
Sorry about the quality of the photo, I can't find my camera charger and had to use the camera on the laptop.
Handy to have but with the lighting so bad due to the weather it takes grainy photos.
Thank you for visiting and I hope your weather is being a little kinder to you where ever you are :)

You Rock

Good morning all and what a miserable one it is.
Garden got flooded out yesterday and still more rain to come.
Got to love the British Summertime lol
Just wanted to share with you a quickie card I made for my sons birthday.
Very difficult to make cards for him but he loved it thankfully.
Stamp used is from Bugaboo and coloured with Promarkers :)

Quickie for hubby

Morning all.
Just posting the last minute card I made for hubby.
He was over the moon with it.
Dies used are by Marianne.
The idea for the card came from Anne
The card and paper are from my stash and each edge has been distressed using an old nail file.
Coloured the tools with a promarker and Papermania metallics.

paper freebie and Mum with babe

Good morning everyone and welcome to my new followers *waves*
I have a freebie backing paper for you all today.
Just something I was playing around with.
Wanted something for a card I am going to make.
First though I just wanted to show you a quick photo of mum and babe.
Both are doing extremely well.
Kiki is such a good mum and is happy for us to handle babe as well which is wonderful.
Babe is currently called George. Don't ask me why but the hubster said he looks like a George lol
Here is the backing paper.
I have used vintage colours and I hope you like it :)
Very much appreciated and won't cost you a penny.
