Butterfly Besties


It is a really cold night here in NSW, Australia where I live, we should probably have the gas heater on, but we had a few days of really warm weather so I thought the cold was finished and packed all the heater away :-P it takes up space in my craft part of the loungeroom and we can't have that happening. As soon as it warms up its gone lol.

Anyway, tonight I was lucky enough to find some time to make a card to meet the requirements for 2 challenges, using a Besties image from Sherri Baldy of Scrapbook Stamp Society, the image I have used is Img 708, you can find the image here .

I am really happy with this card as I have been struggling to do challenges lately due to time restrictions with my personal card orders, so its been very fun :-)

Kaisercraft Tigerlilly Paper Collection
Ric Rac ribbon is from my personal stash
Lace purchased from Spotlight
Leaves are from Marianne Design Die
Twiddleybitz Card Base

Flower is from La La Land Crafts Rolled Rose Die (Medium)

  3. Hi Angel,
    Hey, I'm from NSW too :) Great to see a fellow Bestie lover :) I know what you mean about the heater. The weather was glorious for those few days (yes I remember lol) & now look at it. I mean the days have been pretty nice & warm, but how about the nights? I was sooo cold last night lol.

    Anyway, listen to me rambling lol. I love the Bestie you have used & your colouring is fab. I totally am in love with pink & tend to use that colour a lot in my designs lol. Love your design hun. Great job :) Thank you for entering the Aussie My-Besties Challenge! Hugs, DT Lisa.
