Thinking of you in Mauve

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are all well. I have not had a good week my cold has got a lot worse and I have had to take time off work. I think it might be on the turn now but it has been long and slow.

How sad is this? I ended up making myself a simple Get Well card. I had to be simple because everything I have tried to do this week has gone wrong which has meant that I am getting behind with things that I need to do. Of course I won't keep this card for me, someone else will receive it sometime. I just needed to make something I was pleased with.


This card started with the ribbon which is so pretty. I found the paper in my stash to match the ribbon  which wasn't particularly easy. The card blank is 6"x 6". The larger ivory mat was embossed with the Heart Lattice embossing folder by Sue Wilson.


Here is the butterfly it is one that came on one of the Tattered Lace magazines. My very kind friend has lent it to me. If you are reading, and you know who you are, I promise to give it back soon.  


Here is the sentiment cut with a Britannia die set. The little hearts in the corners are the waste from another die. 


So there you have it. I would like to enter it for Challenge 24 "Butterflies and R is for Ribbon" on the Butterfly Challenge blog. You can't see much of the  ribbon but it is there, you can't miss the butterfly.

Well I hope the end of the week is good for you. The way I am feeling I don't think I will be in work tomorrow. I am just going upstairs for a little sleep. 

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
