Butterfly Baby

Hi everyone, I've finally been able to sit an get down to some crafting woohoo (does a little happy dance) after a busy week trying to get the house ready for christmas, so after a few licks of paint here and there and all of my kitchen cupboards emptied, cleaned and all put back (well almost everything apart for the clutter that  I seem to have collected over this past year lol) I have managed to make a couple of cards.

This card was made using the gorgeously cute Saturated Canary Digi Stamp called Butterfly Baby 
the design papers I've used are Heltz Cuppleditch Neighbourwood 6x6 papers which are scrummy and flittered ( I just love them ). I've also used Bazzill Basics, Silver Mirri, 6x6 White Scalloped Card, Guipure Lace, Aqua Satin Ribbon, Handmade Pink Flower, Die cut Button, Flatbacked Pearls, Ranger Glossy Accents.

To colour this little cutie I have used Promarkers and Flexmarkers and I've also added a little Ranger Glossy Accents to this little cuties eyes and lips which hopefully you can just about see in this picture below (I really do hope Santa Claus is going to be kind to me this year and bring me a lovely shiny new camera lol)

 And this next picture is a close up of the stunning flittered butterfly papers from Heltz Cuppleditch's Neighbourwood collection 

Oops silly me I forgot to mention that I've also used Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and distressing tool to help soften the edges of the topper and take away some of the starkness of the white Neenah  Solar White Card that the butterfly baby's image was stamped on. 

Oh well time for me to go and try and get creative in the kitchen (cooking just isn't my thing lol) and go rustle up something for tea for my very very patient OH and son.

It is always lovely to read your comments and to hear what you think about my cards and other crafty things, also if you have any questions just pop them in the comments box and I'll try to answer all
