This weeks challenge at Arty Glirlz is butterflies and I designed this Thank You card for my friend in the UK who sent me a bag she made herself, it just beautiful, so I combined the two together which was perfect as she like butterflies.
Photos of the bag and the buttons she added to the handles.

I decided to do a challenge today as it seems ages since I entered one and I had to make a thank you card for a friend so I combined them both for My Time to Craft Challenge Blog. I love this 3d decoupe fairies and I know my friend likes them too so this was a bonus, it was a real joy to make and just happens to be one of my favourite colours too, hope you like it.

I have been asked to be on the design team for a new challenge blog, so excited to be a part of this. The challenge blog is called The Cute Daisy May and I hope you will all participate in helping it become a success. Their first challenge is next Monday, 2nd March and the first challenge prize is the full collection of the Cute Daisy May downloads and a place as guest designer for 2 weeks! please tell all your friends and don’t forget the challenge next Monday. The design team are Jennifer, Nicola, Wendy, Net, Alison and Me.
Now on to my card for today, which is embossed with different birthday motifs, then lightly dabbed with pale pink chalk, the flower is pink cardboard with some fluffy stuff for the centre (don’t know what else to call it lol) and a bit of sparkle. The planter is a piece of coloured card I had in a drawer decorated with a bit of bling and all came together with the added bit of wire and hey presto a card.

These are 1.25x4.25 folded pieces of scraps, pieces you have left over from your card makes, stamped and embellished in any way you like The one below is a smaller version of the card with giraffes, so now I have a record of what dies, paper and colours I used but you can make them anything you like.
This is the only thing I had time to make today as the dust was calling and someone (mentioning no names but there is only two of us in this house) wrote their name it, but I am glad to say the sand storm is over yippee and he with no name was told you do it again and you will be doing the dusting lol, so a nice dust free house and smelling of cranberry’s from the candles.
I'v had a card show on the Funky Fairy Inspirations Blog, they wanted to share some cards that had been made with their papers and I was one of them ohhhh so pleased.

I had to take this picture tonight and I just could not get the light right so please forgive the quality, the birthday message is actually pale pink but looks a lot pinker (no idea why) Tomorrow I have a wedding card to do but at this moment no ideas come to mind, the only thing I do know, it will be a clean and simple one. Off to see what my blogging friends have been upto now, have a good night all.

Not long before my friend arrives now and to answer Sallys question yes she is a crafter too so we will be having craft days like we did last time, it's so good to craft with someone else as you both get to swap ideas. Last time she was here she got addicted to my Cuttlebug and as soon as she got home she bought one lol, so now we have more to chat about.
Off to look at some of my favourite blogs now and see what everyone has been creating.

Anyway back to the card, because I had no Mojo at all today (had trouble thinking of something to create) I decided to go clean, simple and minimalistic so this is the result.

For now this will be my last art deco lady as I don’t want you all to get fed up with me, but I do love the art deco period and the clothes are just beautiful. I did this for the Caardvarks challenge which had to include a heart on the card. I have entered this for the Mojo Monday Contest. as well as it fits the sketch there too.
