Just before I came back to the UK I caved and bought the Embellished Floral cartridge for my Cricut. I had resisted it because the handbook shows really hideous combinations of colours, and it wasn't until I had a good look and imagined the cuts done in tonal shades, that I realised that the cuts really were very pretty, so for this card I rebelled totally against the strong colours and used all white......................
Butterfly cut at 3" - I wanted it BIG and I added texture with a swiss dots embossed layer, and added lots and lots of pearls (oops, just noticed the pearls from the antennae have slipped). The butterfly was cut from white pearlised card which has a subtle sheen
The base card is by Craftwork Cards, and the sentiment label was cut using Elegant Edges, and a Stampin Up stamp
I have had such a busy weekend with the children - yes, I took lots of photos but haven't had a chance to edit them yet. Kiki danced beautifully bless her, the babies greeted me joyfully so they hadn't forgotten me, and Max immediately wanted a trip to the park (in the pouring rain....), so all was well
I do hate driving in London though. It's a very nippy sort of place - people nip in and out of lanes, zipping in front of you and behind you. I need to go on a nippy course, I dither and miss the moment, so dither even more, indicator blinking madly - giving rise to the dreaded London toot. They are great tooters down there, hesitate for a moment and they all start tooting their horns like mad. So I drove, and dithered, and in a cacophony of toots found my way around, and eventually, exhausted, back home
See you tomorrow
