May the Easter Bunny bring you lots of chocolate Eggs!

Wishing everyone a peaceful weekend.

Theres a new challenge over on the International Art and Soul blog here called Wings.  Plenty of different wings to play with, birds, dragonflies, bees, ladybirds, fairies and angels to name just a few.
So, please come and join us and please let us know you've been, we would love to see your creations.

For my card I chose to highlight a butterfly from Memory Box called Vivienne, it's such a pretty and lacy die.

I chose to start with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics and then used Spellbinders A2 Tranquil Moments using all of the four dies to mat and layer.  I've cut the butterfly die in matching card and vellum to give it some depth.  I've used such a pretty and glossy blue card for the main mat but sadly with my camera it's not showing.

If you land on my blog please let me know as I am always happy to return the visit.

Distressing, definitely!

It's time for a new challenge at the International Art and Soul blog here.  Our theme this fortnight is, Distressing.

Well for me it was distressing as I had in my minds eye exactly what I wanted to create. What ever I seemed to do went wrong, I threw away the two previous attempts.

Well, here it is in all its glory!

I couldn't even take a decent picture of it what with my green bin in the background too.  Funny enough my husband loved it.

The background paper is from a Dovecrafdt pack and the Butterfly is by Sue Wilson. The lovely Butterfly sentiment is by our very own INTAAS co-ordinator Jane Bradshaw.
