Flutterby Wishes...

Hello there :)....I hope you are having a great weekend so far? Well, better than I have been having anyway LOL. It started last night....after spending the whole day sorting out stuff for a garden sale and totally shifting all the furniture round in the lounge( and hurting my blinking back!!) I then went on to accidently flood a fair portion of our kitchen :(. I started to run the water in the sink for the washing up and popped in the lounge....then I got side tracked.......ooooops!

A little while later I walked back into the kitchen......to see water and bubbles streaming out from the cupboards under the sink...all across the worktops and dripping down through each set of drawers....and all across the carpet :( :(....!"!??!*!!

....and so BEGAN THE MASS EXODUS OF ALL ITEMS FROM SAID CUPBOARDS!!!!!!
Today the carpet is still sodden....BUT the cupboards are nice and shiny inside....NOT impressed and very angry with myself....Ho!Hum!!!! And it was wet and horrid this morning so no garden sale either.....and now the nicely shifted round lounge is full of boxes and bags of *stuff*....so maybe we will try tomorrow....weather permitting.

Anyway, enough of soggy things....I thought I would share a card I made the other day with some left overs from a layout. Its bits and scraps of Scenic Route, some bazzill, a prima blossom, some bling and some lush lime lace from my lovely blogging friend Sarah ( thanks Hun :) )

The flutterbys are double layed and punched from cardstock and a layer of vellum, their bodies are made from wire and beads and the left over wire is twirled to make the antennae.

DON'T FORGET YOU STILL HAVE TIME TO GET YOUR ENTRY IN FOR THIS MONTHS CHALLENGE OVER AT SCRAPOLOGY......AND THERE IS A FABULOUS PRIZE KINDLY DONATED BY JILL AT CARDINAL COLOURS......GO ON...YOU KNOW YOU WANT TOO!!!!

  2. Fab card Anita - love how you have done the butterflies.

    Sorry to hear about the kitchen flood - I thought it was only me that did things like that. Hope you get your garage sale tomorrow.

  3. The colour pallette is extraordinarily pretty - and I love the little details, like the inking on the edges of the bloom - just perfect!
