Butterfly

Hello, well I'm back after a lovely relaxing holiday, and I would like to say Thank you for all the lovely comments on the last 2 scheduled posts, I do appreciate it, and I also have a couple of new followers, so 'Hello' to you, it's lovely that you should want to follow my crafty journey, not that it's been 'going ' anywhere lately, due to 'life' stuff getting in the way.  I did manage to do some catching up on some of your blogs while I was away - before my glasses broke!  and of course they were 3 weeks out of guarantee, so I'm struggling on with some cheapie readers until my 'new' ones are ready next week.
I haven't managed any crafting - even though I did have some new stamps waiting on the mat when I returned, so thought I'd share this card which I didn't have time to blog before the holiday.
A Brusho background with some random script stamping and stencilling, a piece of the Tim Holtz Mixed media die cut which was rubbed with  Creative Expressions Enchanted Gold wax.  My butterfly,  also has a vellum layer. The TH sentiment was stamped with Faded Jeans DI and clear embossed and the torn edges rubbed with the EG wax.
I am entering this at:
  Country View Crafts - Shabby Chic
  Make my Monday - Dry or Heat Embossing (both on my card)
  The Craft Barn - Butterflies
  Stamping Sensations - Dies and punches

That's it for now, hopefully I will get some crafty time to ink these rubber stamps  up now that all the washing and ironing is done.  Thanks for  visiting,
Avril xx

Glad you had a lively holiday though a shame about your glasses! I always say God bless cheap readers LOL, carry 2 pairs & have another at the chalet in case - I deeded that spare pair last year when the using ones broke at the bridge!

Love your butterfly post & look forward to seeing more soon.
