Two cards to share...........

First of all for Moxie Fab World, I have never entered a challenge on this site before, and these colours were so far outside my comfort zone I just had to join in. Of course, after rummaging around for ages I couldn't find an exact match, especially for the blue, so a compromise was reached...............



The papers are all bits and pieces that I have had hanging around for the longest time, so I can't give you the names of any of them




Butterfly - QK butterfly die

Border punch - double loop by martha stewart

embossing - swiss dots and cuttlebug

Next, on to the challenges at Papertake Weekly and Cute Card Thursday, and By the cute and girly, and Fussy and Fancy all of which specified

NEW

and as this stamp has been lying around lonely and uninked, it counts as my new element, super little image, mind you, just looking at her makes me shiver...............







Inky Impressions stamp - Flower Lili
Mega nesties - curved rectangle
D'vine swirls cuttlebug embossing folder
Copics
face - E00, E02, R12, B93 (eyes)
Hair E31, E36
Jeans and hat - B93, B24
Detail - R29, B02, YG 23
Shadow - cool grey 10% prismacolour
ink - memento black tuxedo and cloudy blue martha stewart
flowers Prima
heart gems - Papermania.UK
Flower paper - DCWV from my kitchen stack
sentiment circle - Craftwork Cards

Have you noticed I have little snowflakes drifting down over my blog? As if we didn't have enough drifting down outside - I think it's snowing all over the world. Apparently parts of FLORIDA have had snow. Whatever next!

The butterfly is beautiful but Flower Lili captured my heart. She reminds me of the little girls on my block. Adorable.

Love that butterfly! Yup, don't feel that you're missing anything here in Florida. Tonight is supposed to be 25, I think the high today might have been 40 in the sun! And yes it DID snow and sleet!
