Blue Butterfly Stamps - Daisy Collection


Hi all,my apologies for not being around,I have just had so much going on and can't keep up with everything.I haven't had time to blog and haven't made a card in a week,which is so not me.I have missed making cards,but there is something I have loved even more and that is spending more time with my girls,especially the little one as she goes to school next year.I realised I won't have my baby around the house during the day next year and really want to make the most of having her with me now,next year I know there will be lots more time for crafting.Well,onto my card,before I start to cry....lol....I received my order from Bizzy Becs yesterday and couldn't wait to play with my new toys.The lattice was cut using a Cheery Lynn die and WOW I love it and it is quite large,my only problem was I loved the paper so much, I didn't want to cover it....lol.....so I did the next best thing............cut the lattice,and this is the end result.The gorgeous image,flowers,DP and die are all available at Bizzy Becs store.Well best be off,enjoy the rest of your week.

Wow Cheryl, this is gorgeous. Love the trellis and beautiful colours. Enjoy your time with your DD. they grow so fast, my eldest is leaving school in 3 weeks before starting 6th form later in the year. I cant believe the years have just flown past and now she's all grown up!

I so understand about your little one! We homeschool, so it's not that my youngest won't be with me, but he's just not so little anymore! I get so weepy when I think about it. :)
Big hugs from one mama to another.

I am in love with that trellis and how the flowers are just perfect for that paper! Lovely as always. Tfs!
