Me again

It wasn't actually a New Years Resolution but I really wanted to craft more and in turn blog more this year and so far I think I'm managing both. It's great because after a hectic day chasing after my 11th month I find crafting so relaxing, something my husband doesn't quite believe when he hears expletives coming from my corner of our study when I've done something silly like smudge ink or get glue gel in the wrong place! Little does he know trying to cover up these 'Happy Little Accidents' are like mini

Today I'm sharing my Sister's birthday card with you. Now I always put my all into a card but I do so even more for my sister Tracy as she is also a card makerand I like to make that extra effort. I'm entering the card into a few challenges as well. Firstly Flutterby Wednesday where I have followed the sketch (I must praise Carly the sketch really got the creative juices flowing and I think I will use it again it the future) and used my lovely new Hero Arts Butterfly Cling Stamps. Secondly The Stamp Man Challenge is distress, my take on this is the scratched up mirror board used for matting and layering and the inking I have done round the edge of some plain white card stock. And thirdly Pollycraft Challenge where the challenge was soft pastels.

 Items: A5 Deckles Edge white card blank, silver mirror board, Frilly Frames Dies (from Once Upon a Stamp), patterned paper from DCWV card stack, plain white card, blossom nesties, Dovecraft Sister clear stamp, flowers from Hobbycraft, Papermania pearl stick-ons, Pink Peony Versa Magic, Starlight Silver Brilliance, acetate, glitter, and the butterfly attenae were made by looping wire popping extra thick PVA on the end and dipping in glitter.


  1. Fabulous card Lisa, just love the pinks and design and the butterflies are fabulous. I am sure your sister will LOVE it too.
    Thanks for playing with us at The Stamp Man this week and good luck.
    Hope you're having a good week.
    luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
