  10. Got my inky backgrounds done and my dies run through them...Off home tomorrow, so will make up my cards this week...summery butterflies are fun to make!

  11. So fun to share our love of butterflies. Really terrific DT designs this round!!

  12. Valerie, Each card is so pretty. Your little butterfly girl is so sweet and puts me in mind of the quilt pattern, Sunbonnet Sue. Love the pastels & of course the flittering butterflies. Once again, you've used a new product with the Brusho W/C, so will have to find out what that is. Your card is beautiful, and I like all those splatters & splotches that look like a bright summer's English garden (at least what I imagine an English garden to look like). It's lovely. TFS & Hugs

  13. Hi Mrs A, finally got around to linking my Fireweed and Butterflies card. I really thought the colours suggested Autumn but on a drive out on Monday I noticed that the hedgerows were just teeming with Fireweed ... and it's still summer :) Many thanks for inviting me to link it here. Elizabeth xx

  14. Me again, Mrs A. My butterfly cards are a bit like buses, you wait ages for them and then along come several one after the other :) Elizabeth xx

  27. Hello, I'm sorry I've been a bit absent of late. Seems life is moving too fast for me. Not to mention, housework has finally raised it's ugly head and I decided to tackle my carpeting. Spent 2 days shampooing. I may just hire it done next year....I'm getting too lazy! Well, off to tackle another project...well, maybe I should just visit the other summer butterflies. Housework will wait. Summer is flying by! Have a wonderful week!

  28. Finally back with another card.
    I am learning about inks...I have lots too learn!
