Butterfly Mind

 Morning and I needed a card ASAP for my cousin I knew it was her birthday in plenty of time but you know how it goes you get distracted then completely forget!!! Hopefully this will reach her in time but can post as she doesn't do blogging,


Thank you for all your comments of concern I am now okay so obviously was just this nasty bug going round thankfully,Helen got discharged from hospital this wek as they are really pleased how she is healing,looks like a bit of nerve damage though on top lip and inside mouth is still sore hindering eating-but just a matter of time.


Right onto card ---I used the Butterfly Mind set stamped onto card blank then left uncoloured,then stamped main stamp onto a leftover scrap of paper smooshed with oxide ink,then stamped all the co-ordinating butterflies and coloured with promarkers.

This is just a showstopper Carol. The coloured butterfly panel really pops yet it doesn't take away from the gorgeous background. Love it. Hope you are well recovered now. On my final day of antibiotics tomorrow and they have played havoc with my stomach!! Will be glad to put this behind me!!

Leslie Miller said...

Wow, this is beautiful! Your coloring of the butterflies is divine! I'm so glad to hear you're feeling better. Darn bugs! You just never know what new thing might be going around these days. We had a mystery illness here, but better now. Also glad to hear Helen is on the mend. I wonder if the nerve damage will heal. It all sounds so painful, poor thing!

So pleased to hear that you are feeling better and that Helen is on the mend.

Fabulous card, I love the black and white images under the coloured images and the film strip makes me think of negatives.

I know exactly what you were talking about - how often do I forget to pop a card in the post in time for a birthday .... even though I have known it was their birthday for weeks?

Have a good weekend.
