Butterfly dance

Morning All

Thank you for popping in nice of you to come by...

Happy Mothers Day to all the Mums out there today, hope you have
a lovely day. It does not matter if you are alone or with
family - remember you are LOVED by me
and I am thinking of you.

Sometimes its difficult, sometimes its easy, but that is life.

So big hugs to you all.


Here is my card for today.

I used up a background paper - made by using up the distress inks on
a blending mat - spray with water and place white card / paper onto 
leave to dry with a weight on it to flatten it. 

Stamped with Black ink using Sheena Douglass free stamp and 
Hobby Art Butterfly stamps. 

Colour in with various shades of Grape.

Used shimmer sparkle pen on the butterflies and added glitter 
onto the small ones. 

Painted in "grasses" and added a coloured edge.

Mounted onto grape/purple card and onto a white 
card blank.

Put on Happy Birthday and 

Bingo Butterflies Dancing .... 

Hope you like it 

I would like to enter it for the following 


Thank you for popping in 

Have a great day today and wishing every Mum 
a Very Happy Mothers Day.
