Good morning crafty friends. Today's challenge over at Charisma Cards is all about the other Crafty stuff you do. No cards for this one please......My DT inspiration for you this fortnight is a 3D picture.

I recently saw a similar picture on Pintrest with butterflies and really liked it, so I decided to make one for myself. So here it is.....

A different angle to show the depth the butterflies create.

Materials used are..15" x 15" Artist canvas..Marianne Creatable Butterfly Dies...Mini  butterfly dies by Cheery Lyn Designs, First Edition papers and Brilliance inkpads in pink and green to distress the edges of the canvas.
 Ive also seen a black and white version of this in the shops with the butterflies in a circle and it was very expensive. This one only cost the price of the Artist canvas which was £8.00 so I recon I saved myself a fortune. I'm really pleased with it and it is now in my newly decorated spare room.

I hope you enjoy our challenge for you this time and look forward to seeing all your amazing creations. Don't forget to pop over to the Charisma challenge blog and feast your eyes on the teams creations.
Thanks for you visit today, Happy Crafting !!

Hunkydory 70th Mum....

This was a card commissioned by a friend of mine for her Mum's 70th Birthday. 
I decided to use the lovely Hunkydory set of card and toppers I had just bought and complimented the floral design by adding flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. With card this beautiful you really don't need a lot of extra embellishments so I just added the Sentiment, an Organza bow and a sweet little heart charm. Inside is plain and simple and I added another little topper on the left hand side which you can just see a glimpse of in the pic. 
I'm really pleased to say she loved it !!

Well that's me for now, time for a cuppa I think!!.

Happy crafting
