Afternoon all, it's a sunny March day, lovely delightful sunshine although there is somewhat a slight chill in the air! Hope everyone is I'd firstly like to say a big welcome to my latest follower and then to tell you I've had a little spend at the Glitter Pot by taking advantage of their free p&p and bought some replacement plates for my Cuttlebug..also from QVC bought the EK Success Layering Butterfly punch which was on the TV couple of days ago.Well what can I say, arrived this morning. I only had the basic mini hand butterfly punch (the ones you start out with as a beginner, very inexpensive) so I thought it was about time I treated myself and I'm so glad I went for this one, so much scope there, as you can see I've used 2 layers here on my card, at only £15 I thought a bargain and then p&p added on was still under £20! Can't complain really, and there are some more new goodies on here too, the gorgeous ribbon and those pearls are from Meiflower (won from the Crafty Pad blog along with so much more) 'many thanks!' There's so much on their website, you're simply spoilt for choice and very good value.

I've used an old PB stamp 'letters & flowers', wonderful for a mum, grandma, special lady who cares about you. Used Promarkers to colourise the butterflys punched out from recycled greetings card and also the bow which was orginally white.
So the challenges are a fair few, Pixie Cottage 'sketch & things with wings', Crafts & Me 'things with wings' as is Allsorts, Paperplay 'recycle' as is OSAAT, Crafty Ribbons 'celebrate mum/grandma' as are Oldie but a Goodie, Promarker, Simon Says, Dream Valley. Flutterby Wednesdays 'springtime' as are Crafty Calendar, My Mums craft shop, Penny Black & more. I Love Promarkers 'ribbons & bows', Desmet 'anything goes' as is Papertake weekly, Sweet Stampin 'nature & bugs' as is Alphabet. Thankyou for coming over to see what I've been creating, hugely appreciated!

Your card is just beautiful Ruby.

Very effective how you have used just a section of the PB letters and flowers stamp and that butterfly punch is gorgeous - one for the wish list.

Thanks so much for joining in with my Spread your Wings theme at Allsorts this week and Spring theme at Penny Black and More, good luck with both.
