Flying free

Hello there,

I am so glad it is the weekend, but I am sure it will go by far too quickly. Especially as I have a very busy week next week as I am doing overtime, so get fewer days at home! Hubby is working overtime tomorrow, so I am aiming to get some crafting done - although I do have bits to do in the garden and boxes to sort from out of the cupboard..... lol

Anyway I thought I would share with you my latest creation - designed as a divorce card that is a little more subtle.

I used another one of my heavily patterned base cards for this card, rounding the corners before I started. I used some papers free with Quick Cards magazine, and rounded the corner of this too. I used two scalloped die-cuts and a doily to make my layers, keeping the card very pink with a hint of ivory. I used the letters from the papermania Nature collection (Yup I used a C for the second e as there were not enough in the set!) I then used a fancy die-cut butterfly and two simple but stamped die-cut butterflies (these were a sizzix set) and some flower sequins to finish the card.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
inkychicks #82 Butterflies
Kort 'o' mania #175 Lots of layers
diecuttin' divas #315 Sketch

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - Hint of Pink

I would also like to share some more pics from the nearby lakes.

 Baby coots - daddy would come and get some bread and then swim back to the babies with it lol - didn't like the mealworms though

 Pinkie babies

Robin definitely liked the mealworms though lol.
