Butterfly birthday


I hope you are enjoying your week and getting some crafty time in.

I have made a birthday card for one of my friends that I have known since school, which means that we are all reaching the grand old age of 50 this year (I did mine last year in fact).

This lady is indeed fabulous at fifty, as she has been all her life.  In fact even more than me, she just can't be that old!

I used green blue and lilac so I'm entering this into the Less is More challenge this week which is to use three colours or three shades of a colour.

I used my old but still wonderful PearlEx watercolours and painted a piece of card randomly with blue and green.  I then die cut the butterfly and swirls and used up the scraps with baby butterflies.  I computer generated WordArt greeting and some bling and it's done.  Thanks to this card for my inspiration.

Sketchy Birthday

Hello world

I hope you are all looking forward to the extra day's holiday on Monday we get here in the UK.

This week at Less is More, we have a sketch to follow.  It's a lovely one too, so thanks Chrissie.

Here is my offering, a pretty literal interpretation.

I wish I hadn't added the dragonfly now, but I found the punch in one of my boxes of punches (ahem, I have three, two large crates and one small one) and decided to add it.  Maybe it's just the glitter glue that make it look a bit odd.

Ah well, 'tis done now.  Enjoy your weekend everyone.
