Ombre Butterflies...

Those of you who follow the Fiskarettes page on FB will have seen this, but I'm sharing it again for those of you who haven't seen it

First I took some paint chips, and a butterfly punch.....



I stamped some of the butterflies with background stamps to add interest....


Then just added a flight of ombre butterflies to a white background and framed in a simple frame


The house move is back on track, but the legal guys are taking their time, so instead of this Friday, we don't have a definite date yet, maybe two weeks? Maybe three? Who knows.....

But in the meantime, I have lists of lists - enough scraps of paper to wallpaper a room, and I am knee deep in paint colour charts and samples of curtain fabric. So in the near future, I reckon this blog will morph into a home decorating frenzy - there isn't going to be a whole lot of time for cardmaking that's for sure!

I will have a dedicated craft space though - in the new house there is a shed in the garden, one of those pretty sheds painted a pretty duck egg blue and with window boxes. It has light. It has lots of plugs (outlets), It is insulated. It measures 10' x 16' - it is perfect......I think I will make a sign for the door. Any ideas? I am thinking 
En's Den...............but one of you will have the perfect sign I'm sure

Ikea, here I come......

See you tomorrow x

  9. Hope En's Den has heat for the winter. That's important , too. But it sounds delightful and I would love to have something like that here. And it is my favorite color, blue.

  17. How about 'Snug As A Crafty Bug' for your new shed! It's great to have a space that you can just close the door and don't have to tidy up after each crafting session. Good Luck with the house move.
    Cheers
