It's a card!!!

Hi, guys! The stranger returns!! I wish I could tell you that I've been away from Blogland because of some exciting holiday or something else dramatic and thrilling - but, no. Unless you count my dropping my stam iron, which broke and spattered water on the tv plug. ALL the lights went out - but luckily I only needed to reset the fuses. Phew!

And then the builders came to replace a broken gutter and ended up relacing 3 rotten roof joists. What a palaver!!!

But you don't want to hear me whinge! Here's a card I made, using a pre-printed LotV image that came as a freebie with a mag a long time ago. Well, I need to use up my stash before Christmas, when hopefully there'll be new stash wrapped up under the tree!


The background paper is from stash, it was another freebie, it's a lovely colour! The vines are cut with a small flourish die by Cheery Lynn, using a snippet of brown cardstock.

The flower used a Spellbinders Rose Creations die, with a gemmed brad in the middle which I coloured brown with a Henna Promarker. The butterflies are cut with a Martha Stewart punch from another snippet of paper, and there are gold Liquid Pearls on their bodies.

The sentiment is by LotV, stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento ink, layered on a scalloped circle also cut with a Nesties die.

I am entering this week's Flutterby Wednesday Challenge where they want to see BROWN (the vines, butterflies and sentiment mat) as well as the usual Butterfly or Fairy.

And Pixie's Crafty Snippets as there are quite a few snippets used here! Though I still have a mahoosive heap of snippets left, I swear they grow every time my back is turned!

I hope your week is going well! Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

Adorable card! Love that sweet little LOTV fairy with her Teddy. Great use of the pretty rose & flourish, and I always like this MS butterfly. One of her best punches, I think. TFS & Hugs
