Hi, hope everyone is warm and indoors. It's freezing and we woke up yesterday to a white blanket of the soft stuff (snow). Absolutely lovely, hope it kills all those bad bugs. Last year nothing settled and it was great seeing adults taking their youngsters out to make the most of it, forming memories on their gadgets this time, heating was on full all day, I've given it a respite today and aired all the house...bugs are rife at the moment and I need to keep on my toes to get things done, mainly finish off projects and alter a few cards etc. Today my card is using Michelle R's digi d/loads called 'vintage'. I've used this one before and it's always greatly received. There's the sheet of digi on base card, then acetate with gold peel-off corners, then a cut out butterfly strengthened onto card, curved wings and lifted with foam pads, stamped sentiment and inside too. Finished with glamour dust on wings, red ribbon threaded and corners rounded off.
