I have a confession to make. With Mark being such an expert gardener you might have expected some of his skill and passion to rub off on me, but I have totally "brown fingers" in that every plant I touch dies. I can no more tend a plant than he can wield an embossing folder, and back in our Army days when we lived in flats and all our plants were house plants, he used to arrange for a neighbour to come in and water the house plants when he was away on exercise, even though i was still at home!!!
So, when I won a CraftsUPrint voucher in a recent Butterfly Challenge, I just HAD to choose this download - and just to make it an appropriate way to use my prize, I was pleased to see it included some butterflies to embellish the design.
The download had all the elements for several layers of decoupage for a large 8" square card plus enough to decorate the inside of the card and the envelope. And I love the contrast between the delicate, pretty background and the bold, snarky image and sentiment. As well as identifying with the sentiment, I reckon Stella (or the Stella look alike) has the same lockdown curly hair problems as me - I, too, have developed a tendency to look in the mirror and see Shock Headed Peter looking back at me. Not sure I feel confident enough to visit the hairdresser yet, I'm going to wait a few weeks and see what effect the easing of lockdown has on the number of cases of Covid in our area.
I am sharing this with
The Butterfly Challenge where as luck would have it, aquamarine is one of the current colours to choose from, so I'm claiming just the one element plus butterflies.
