Welcome to all my blogging friends! I am now a Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator.

Sunday 13 October 2013


Good morning fellow bloggers, what a change in the weather. Last week we had a high of 20 deg and now we are back to wet, windy and cold.

Of course this means more time for crafting so time for our latest challenge over at

We have a super challenge for you and it has been chosen by Wendy how unfortunately isn't too well and has been missing for a few weeks. I am sure you will join me in wishing her a speedy recovery and on a personal note, thank you Wendy for choosing this particular theme.
Those of you who know me, will know I have a passion for butterflies and I have loved designing my DT card for you this week.

It is the second week for our lovely Guest Designer - WYNN and when you see what she has designed for you this week you will see why she is our Guest Designer. Do pop over and visit her blog, she loves to read your comments.

My DT Card is shown below


My favourite 6x6 scalloped card for the base and I added Pan Pastels around the edge for effect.
Both the images and backing papers are from a JEMS DESIGNS CD - Butterflies by Request.
This particular CD was designed by Sheenagh Hulin and I think it is a beautiful CD.
I used Spellbinders Dies to cut out shapes from Gold Mirri Card and then attached toppers from the CD which are the same shape as the dies.
My sentiments came from the embellishment section and I added a couple of tiny butterflies, cut out using my butterfly punch.

I hope you will join in with us this week and I have noticed we have a couple of new followers so welcome to you all.

Our only rule is:  you have to use something from a CD in your design and tell us which CD you have used.

Take a moment to visit my fellow design team's blog's as they have created stunning designs for you this week, plus you may pick up on a 'new to you' CD

I am also entering this into ooh-la-la-creationschallenges which is

Lovely card Christine and I love the colours. Somehow it depicts late season Autumn butterflies. But where is the purple?
