Spent a lovely afternoon relaxing in the sunshine in the garden with my pile of craft magazines - it felt so good after years of owning and running holiday parks to be at home on a Bank Holiday - retirement = bliss.
Made a couple of quickie cards from my bit box this evening, the first for the CD Sunday challenge of butterflies.
Both the image and the backing paper came from Joanna Sheens Jayne Netley Mayhew CD. I have layered up the butterflies to give them some dimension and highlighted the wings with a Sakura stardust gelly roll pen. Card is finished with a knotted ribbon and some pearls.
