Thanks for joining me today.  I'm pleased to say that after a very long week of feeling ill, I now feel so much better.  I think I need some multi vitamins though, to give me a bit more "oomph!".

The card I am sharing today is for a friend who has just had surgery.  I hope it will brighten her day.

The green card is from a collection called Spring Fling and it's from Craftwork Cards, as are the message band and sentiment.  I cut the aperture from the centre of the card (leaving a 2.5cm border all the way around).  Then I punched out 6 pink glittery butterflies with a Martha Stewart punch, and stuck three together (twice) to make 3D embellishments.

I'm really happy with how this card turned out.  It didn't take very long to make which was perfect as time was short and I like the freshness of it.

I hope you are all having a good week.  Mine will improve radically tomorrow when my washing machine is repaired.  It has been out of action for over a week.  Thank heavens for my lovely mum, who has been doing it all for me (and ironing it too!).  With a family of four, my machine is on at least once every day - it's the one appliance that sends me into a panic if it breaks down!

Take care and thanks for visiting.  I am so appreciative of your comments.

  1. This lovely card is like a breath of fresh air Michelle. I love the pink and green together and I'm sure your friend will really appreciate the thought. I couldn't cope without the washing machine either - how lovely of your mum to help out! Glad to hear you're feeling better. Vicky x
