Just for you card with butterfly

Good morning friends! just a quick post to show
 you another 'Less is More' card I have made.
The theme is.....
 'This makes me happy'
I went with butterflies this time. I love to see 
them flitting about the garden in Summer.
I could watch them for ages. 
I wasn't happy with my colouring and infact I
 had three attempts at making butterflies.
I also added some distress ink and 'splattering'
later as I still wasn't happy. You decide 
which is best ;)
My mojo was missing yesterday sadly, and
 yet the other day I just made card after
 card. Why is that??
I did go on to make two more cards later on
which I was happier with. Lots of family/friends
ones to do also. I will show you those in another
Enjoy your week whatever you have planned.
We are off to celebrate our grandsons 3rd 
birthday today.He is going to the zoo first so 
hoping for some nice photo's.
 I have been practising some magic tricks to
 astound him with later ( no laughing please).......
well that's the plan lol !
ps.Happy Birthday to my lovely friend Jackie
 today too mwah xx ;)

Twinkle twinkle card

Hi friends, it's Saturday again so time to
 show you another 'Less is More' card.
 This week the theme is......
"This makes me happy!
 It could be a colour, a technique, a design, a
 subject that pleases you... whatever! 
However, we would like you to TELL US
 what the thing is that pleases you!"

 What a lovely challenge ! Well I think most
 of you know already about my love of PINK

My main loves are of course my family,esp.
my gorgeous grandchildren. My other loves
are crafting, making cards, jewellery, 
photography, walking, music etc. etc.

But pink and babies do feature quite often
with me. As my lovely DIL's will tell you

 I always pinch the babies for a kiss & cuddle
as soon as they arrive at our house. Often
before they have even got out of the car.
My DIL's find this sooo amusing!!!!

So my card features pink and is a  baby 
card. The sentiment is exactly how I
 feel about all my 'little stars' .....
or grandbabies ;)

See side pics to see just how adoreable 
they are! ....ahem well yes I am a
tad biased !

Anyway here is my card, come and have
 a closer peek.
Btw. I am experimenting using the
'manual' option now with my new fancy 
camera. So  pics may vary...but I hope to
 improve as I go.

ps. A big welcome to my latest follower too.
Thank you for choosing me and welcome

Have a lovely week everyone whatever
you have planned. We will be celebrating
Alexander's 3rd birthday on Monday ;)
