Easel butterfly cards

Told you I'd be gone awhile & I have but hopefully blog posting will return to normal as of today.

My dear friend Judy had her birthday in the week & she always makes me the most fantastic cards imaginable - so pressure time for me - well I'm in love with our new butterfly stamp, punches & easel cards so knew exactly what I was going to make after seeing someone's lovely card created for the colour challenge on ESAD - unfortunately she hasn't watermarked her photo or posted it in the challenge file but I did see it & it was my favourite - so thank you whoever you are (if you know who it was let me know please).

Stamp sets: Whimsical Words (SAB 2010), Butterfly Prints, Baroque Motifs, Flight of the Butterflies (the wee butterfly inside)
Ink: So Saffron, Cameo Coral, Baja Breeze
Paper: So Saffron, Cameo Coral, Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Walk in the Park DSP (retired)
Punches: Butterfly & Scallop Edge
Other: Flower designer brads, sponge

I also received some special mail in the post or by hand - those ones you know that are going to be special as the envelopes look so pretty!

From Pauline McCardle in Napier - the same but different in Almost Amethyst & Barely Banana

Aren't I a lucky girl! Thanks Pauline

I want that set so bad, but alas the price of shipping is too much and I think id I drove the 2 hours to SU! headquarters and ask for it, they might think I'm crazy.

Two beautiful butterfly cards ladies. We really do have to work harder to get Pauline blogging - perhaps you can get her started at convention Karen?!
