A Kaleidoscope of Butterflies

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? Yesterday a lovely friend took me out for the day. Unfortunately I ended up with a really bad headache. I had to come home early and our evening plans were cancelled. I think the headache was a reaction to all the stress there has been lately. My mum is now home and she will be living upstairs. I am not sure if it is because of the dementia but she sleeps a lot.

Last week when I was making the wedding card with  Butterfly Heart die set, from the John Next Door range from Crafts Too, I couldn't believe just how many beautiful butterflies there were that came away from the die. So being me the WASTE had to be made into a card.

I used my Hougie board to emboss the background. 

I went a bit mad cutting more butterflies to add to the ones I already had. 

This is a Crafter's Companion die. 

There you have it quite a simple card to make. I couldn't let those butterflies go to waste. 

I would like to enter the following challenges: 

Enjoy the rest of the week 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

Hi Jackie,
what a very clever way to use those Butterflies.
All the lovely coloured butterflies are gorgeous.
Such a lovely card to receive too.
Very summery looking as well.
Hope your headache is better now as you said it must be stress.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

What a fabulous card Jackie! I adore all those butterflies, which reminds me that I have a couple of dies coming up soon as a prize and one is teeny little butterflies! Oopsie - let the cat out of the bag there!

I'm sure your headache will be stress induced and it's not surprising. I hope that life settles down for you soon. Your Mum is so lucky to have you.

Sorry I'm a bit late commenting!

Kathy said...

Been a bit MIA - a little trip away and busy with family stuff too, so now trying to catch up with my favourite crafting friends!
What a joy this card is, all those lovely butterflies - you brought colour to a rather dull old day today, Jackie! said...

Such a pretty butterfly card with all the different textures and patterns for each. Really like the dimension on the wings too, very effective. Hope you are feeling better. Michelle x
