Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

Flutterby butterfly…..


In case you hadn’t guessed Butterflies are the theme of Digi Doodle Shop Challenges. I’m sure we all have butterfly stamps and punches but if you use one the Shops images your entry will count twice!

I decided to stay away from colourful butterflies and go for a more striking monochrome with a touch of colour.

Butterfly punch by Martha Stewart
Butterfly Die cut by Craftwork Cards
BP/Ribbon/Candy by Craftwork Cards
Butterfly Scroll by Digi Doodle Shop


Don't forget to come and see what winged beauties the rest of the DT have created!

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Divas by Design - die cuts (2nd entry)
Truly Scrumptious - things with wings
Flutter By Wednesdays - open week (butterfly)
Papertake Weekly - anything goes
KB Cute Monday - anything goes
Lexi's Creations - a bugs life
Craft your Passion - anything goes
Onestitchatatime - use a digi

This is just lovely Debs - that's a pretty butterfly image from DDS and I love your colour combo. That is one of my fav nestie shapes and it's perfect for your lovely easel card.

Hope the neck is doing OK now ?
