Clean and Simple

Good Afternoon
My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I Hope you are all well this Monday afternoon?

Been busy doing housework and changing curtain, then decided, whilst the
sun is shining and the wind is blowing that I would wash the ones I had
taken down.

I did not realise how strong this wind was, well yes I have managed to get
three pairs of curtains dry but I have been in and out like a yoyo, as the 
wind was blowing the curtain all over the line at one point on curtain 
blew off the line and only for the poppy plant it would have blown
over  the fence. Hey Ho what fun.

Have been very busy over the weekend getting my DT card made
and scheduled but I did manage to make this one just for me
and if I say so myself I am very very please with how its turned
out, as I do not make many CAS cards.


1. I started with an A5 white card and stamped the
butterflies directly onto the card.

2. Next I stamped the flowers onto white card, then
coloured them with Copic before cutting them out.

3. I then shaped the petals before I adhered it to my
card and added Tonic Nuvo Crystal Drops to each centre.
( These drops are fabulous and hold their shape beautifully
and fast becoming my favourite embellishment).

4. The butterflies were also coloured with Copic.

The stamps are from Honey Doo Crafts and the sentiment
die is from Phil Martin.

Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting

  1. Good morning Jen I'm so please to see you back today I were getting worried that i'd not heard from you in a couple of days and that's not like you.
    I also put my washing out yesterday and yes it were really windy here it was that strong that it pulled my washing line down.

    Any way back to todays card it is absolutely stunning I have to say that I think that this is one of my favourite cards you have done the colours and the design is wonderful.
    And I love the stamps you have used. I think I will have t get some of phill's stamps.

    Have a lovely day.
