Something new, something old .....

Morning All and nice for you to pop over. 

How are you today? Well I hope and are you looking forward to
the weekend. 

The sun is shinning and not much look for rain although they have said 

Well here is my card for today 

I used the water drop stamp from Design by Ryn stamps

having stamped it onto a "waste paint card" 

Cut to size and coloured round the edge with watercolour green pen
mounted with green backing papers and added a few wooden butterflies
thanks to my winnings from Butterfly Challenge

I would like to enter it for the following 


Well thats me for now but before I go I will show you 
something old as it is Erika's share something old on Friday.

So here is a fun card I made last Christmas for a lady who 
wanted a "cow" card. 

It is a photo that I took ages ago maybe 4 years ago and thought I will save that 
as I am sure I can use it at sometime. I used my Serif programme to 
add the bibs and bobs of digi stamps - printed it off and mounted onto a card blank.

She was very pleased with it. 

Just maybe I should enter it into a challenge as I have never shown it 
before? Will give it a try and I am sure will be advised if not suitable :) 


Thank you for popping over to see me. 

Hope to see you again tomorrow and will be blog-ing my Encaustic Wax Art
card .... so watch this space :) 

Thank you to everyone who wished my Mum a happy birthday- 
and yes she has a good "busy" day.
