Y for a yellow Butterfly


Morning Peeps, hope you are all having a good week.

A really short post as typing is so difficult still as is crafting and my mojo seems to have already left for the Mediterranean. I have been trying so hard but the bin seems to be the only winner, so I dug out good old Stampendous P107 which rarely lets me down and wood so easier to hold, along with a PB Butterfly and sentiment and Brusho's thinking not too much could go wrong..........or could it as I'm non to happy with the outcome.

Anyhow am sharing it as I made it especially for the current Butterfly Challenge which is Butterflies of course plus Y for Yellow or Years.

Happy Tuesday all.

Marianne said...

Sorry to hear you're still struggling, Brenda, and then discovering Mr. Mojo also left early. Maybe it's time to take a break. Still, don't be too hard on yourself; maybe the card did not turn out the way you had hoped, but it's still lovely.
Sending a bit of Greek sunshine your way, so you are prepared...

Nothing wrong with that Brenda! The butterfly is beautifully, coloured the background is good and Penny Black stamps are always wonderful. My mojo is having a lazy time too so it's not just you, it must be the English weather...
