Rainbow butterflies

Fist of all, sorry for the radio silence of the last few days. I've been away to visit my Mum, and get her Christmas shopping done, and I can seldom get online when I'm there, so I've not been posting or commenting. And now I'm home and have chance to catch up and visit all the blogs I love, my Bloglovin feed seems to be broken and I can't see which blogs have new posts! Anyway, all Mum's presents are bought and wrapped, one less thing for her to worry about, so now I'll do what I can to catch up!

I don't know about you, but I'm getting rather jaded with all the Autumn/Halloween crafting that's going on at the moment and have found myself yearning to use some lovely fresh, bright spring and summer colours. So I had a delve into my snippets box and came up with a lovely selection of Core-dinations snippets. I layered up strips of them to partly-cover the front of a card blank, stamping the greeting first, then used the snippets-of-the-snippets to punch two butterflies in each colour and arranged them on the strips and to form a border on the white part of the card.


Naturally, I'm dropping in to Pixie's Snippets Playground to join the 200th challenge party,
 and I'm also playing along with Challenge #4 at the new blog Cardz 4 Galz, as this week's challenge is CAS. And apologies to the DT, I did promise to join in right from the start, but the inspiration particles just didn't seem to hit me in the right spot!

Very clever use of the papers strips, Jane, the butterflies adds interest, it's a very pretty card. Glad to hear that the shopping went well.

Love and hugs

It's a great splash of colour and good to see. Well done on sorting your Mum's festive shopping out.

PSST: If you've got any spare jelly or ice cream . . . we need it round the back of bike sheds for the party. . . See you later!
Hugs, Sarn xxx
