Hello folks!! :)
I'm popping in today to share a card I made a few weeks ago with some simply gorgeous new stamps but will have to try and keep my waffle to a minimum as the reason I've been away so long is that I have had a major health crash along with a lot of stressful goings on and, though I am finally doing a bit better, I am still feeling pretty ropey and having to be careful I don't overdo things...
That being said, I simply couldn't wait any longer to share this card with you...
It is made using the simply beautiful Butterfly Wishes stamp set from Clearly Besotted Stamps... I am so so happy to have discovered CBS... their stamps are fantastic and there are dies to match too... I'm in crafty heaven!!lol
The first thing I did was to die cut a whole pile of butterflies and then had a lovely time stamping them out in almost every colour of ink I have... then I had a play with colour combos and decided I'd use these pinks I have never used on anything before and wouldn't have thought to put together normally... I love when something inspires me to try something different!! :)
Alongside discovering the company, I also discovered Stephanie's amazing blog and I guess I have been soaking in a lot from her cards as this card could have been cased directly from this one of hers- one of the many, many gorgeous cards she has over there... so thank you Stephanie for the amazing inspiration as well as gorgeous products!! :)
The sentiment is also from the Butterfly Wishes set with the extra 'sending you' from the other set I got at the same time, Warm Wishes :)
White 5"x7" top-fold card blank plus extra for diecuts

I had so much fun making this card and plan to make more in other colour combos soon :) I have also already received my second order of lovely goodies from Stephanie and had little play with some of it (it was a big order and there are still so many more sets I'd love!!lol) for my mum's Mother's Day card which I will share as soon as I have energy to get the pics edited :)
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges: Addicted to CAS - Wings :) ; CAS-ual Fridays - Colour Blocks (I hope this fits!!) :) ; CAS on Sunday - Happy Birthday :) ; Joanna Sheen - Mum's the Word (a card for a special lady- this one will be going to my oldest friend for her birthday next week!!) :) ; Allsorts - Springtime :) ; Delicious Doodles - Use Diecuts :)
I'll be back just as soon as my health allows, until then- thanks for stopping by and for your comments!! Hope you're all keeping well and wrapped up warm!! :)
