Butterflies & Ditsy Florals!


I'm back today with a card I made yesterday during my afternoon crafty session :) It's lovely to indulge once in a while and spend a few hours not doing anything but the thing I love most - making cards! Of course I love running the business and my other passion of designing, but sometimes I just want to sit and create and time doesn't always allow. 

Anyway, how about the card...

The current challenge over at 'Less is More' HERE is to use more than one stamp. With that in mind Background Builders: Vines came to mind ;) Lots of ditsy florals to stamp! I combined them with a sentiment from Flower Power #1 and the Designer Dies BRIGHT Butterflies.

Over the weekend I treat myself to some lovely new ink pads from Make the Day Special, they are the Avery Elle pigment inks AND they are lush! I chose just 5 of the colours to start me off and of course chose my 3 'go to colours', Aquamarine, Raspberry & Mimosa! I added in a lovely bright green called Lemon Grass and a Grey called Fog. I've used all 5 on todays card :)

Ok, that's all from me today, I've an appointment with the midwife this morning and then the window fitter is coming to measure up! I'm hoping to then squeeze in a little time in the studio before I head out to my United In Birth hypnotherapy & relaxation session :) 

Tomorrow we have the winner of Uniko Studio Challenge #9 Guest Designing for us and giving you some inspiration for the current challenge HERE. Be sure to pop by and give our guest some love. Until then, thank you for stopping by today :)
