A Kaleidoscope of Butterflies



Morning Peeps, I've made a card again !!

Might not sound too amazing but with one arm, shoulder and neck still wonky and full of pain it's a bit of an achievement. It's not am amazing card and has taken me a couple of days but I was determined to get something accomplished on the craft front as I am fast running out of my 'just in case' work.................the last few weeks confirm to me that it's a good principal to stand by and craft for England when I'm OK. 

It's for the current Snippets Playground challenge and also the Butterfly Challenge which is of course Butterflies with Kraft and/or Kaleidoscope, well the latter immediately said a Kaleidoscope of Butterflies to me, so stamping onto Kraft card with Altenew Layered Lilies and lots of punched Butterflies using up glitter card snippets.

My thanks again for all your kind visits when I am such a poor blogger, they all mean so much and do lift my spirits.

  11. This is really lovely Brenda, the colours compliment the kraft card perfectly and although I have resisted a layered stamp set so far I think you may well have persuaded me that they might be a useful addition to my stash!! Wishing you better days xx
