Summer Butterflies and recycling winners

Good morning Peeps, time for our new challenge at Allsorts where Tracy Mouse would like to see 'Butterflies'. Our sponsors are PPR Papercrafts and Deedeeds Digis.

My favourite Penny Black quote is making another appearance here along with some Tattered Lace Butterflies. I created the background with a stencil and distress inks, stamped the quote with black archival and cut the Butterflies from purple vellum. Some organza ribbon, pearls slider, more pearls and liquid pearls and finito, not much more to add really !

I have packaged six parcels and done the draw for the crafty goodies a couple of days early as I'm not sure how I will be feeling next week after the teeth extractions and I know if I leave it I may well forget with that and our holiday looming as well. So here are the names out of the hat...............

Pearl claimed

Helletlittle claimed

Scrapamondo claimed

Tracy claimed

Kitty claimed

Ruby claimed

Well done to you all, please mail me a.s.a.p with your full postal details so I can get them in the post. Should any remained unclaimed by 28th July I will re-draw them.

Have a good weekend all.

  34. Hello, Brenda. So sorry to read about what you have been going through with your teeth. So disheartening to be losing so many and I can only imagine the pain you are experiencing. Sending healing prayers your way.

    Your card is beautiful! I do enjoy butterflies - they are my favourite behind kitties. The sentiment is lovely as well. Congratulations to all the winners and I was particularly excited to see my good friends ScrAPamondo and Bad Kitty as winners of your lovely goodies!

    Feel better, dear Brenda. I will keep you in my prayers.

  35. The ribbon looks so beautiful Brenda. Get well soon before your holiday!!

Your simple card is so elegant...I love the butterflies :):) and the Liquid Pearl accents are just the perfect touch that makes this card so special! thank you for your generous giveaway, and congrats to the lucky winners! Hugs!

  39. I'm responding to your 1st August post, where you say you've put comments back on , but can't see a comment button on that post.. am sure it's blogger to blame! You should never worry about not repaying visits to people, we all lead busy lives, and you have more to put up with that most. Love the new card, (as always!) hope all the symptons remain under control and you enjoy your holiday. comment when you can, no stress, no pressure!! xxxx

  40. Congrats to the lucky winners. Hugz
