SORRY.....

9th March 2014
After a great deal of thought and taking in all the changes in my life over the past eighteen months or so, I have decided that for the the time being, at least, I will only be posting once a week on a Monday from now on.......

OLD TEMPLATES AND FILES
I am sorry I cannot send out any templates, poems etc. that I may have previously offered in the past, the files have been lost and I have chosen not to redo them

Cream and Black Patchwork Butterfly Card

Butterfly Patchwork
I know I keep coming back to the same card layout, but I love experimenting with different papers and embellishments to see the different effects I can get.
Close Up of Butterflies 
I love using papers with a word print.  I have used a mixture here, one is a scrapbook paper Craftshouse -Allsorts in Aniseed (CWAL06), and the other is taken from a really old dictionary I got from a car boot sale, the pages have really aged beautifully and the paper is quite delicate to use.
Patwork Butterflies
I have used an ivory linen card as it more subtle than white and have added small flat backed pearls to the butterflies for texture.  The butterflies have been punched using the Martha Stewart butterfly trio punch.
