butterflies and snow...

Good morning everyone...omg how cold is it, you wouldn't believe that this time last week I was putting sun cream on before we went out...its freaky isn't it how vastly different it is we even had snow flurries yesterday although our weather isn't as bad as poor Scotland and its snow...well our breakfast together turned into lunch, it was my beautiful Daughters day off yesterday and I knew when she asked me for breakfast it would be lunch and sure enough at 11am I got the text...slept in be there as soon as I can lol...it was still lush though and she still cooked so still a huge massive treat, well lets face it girls someone cooking for you no matter what time of day is fab isn't it...she is so like her Dad though and gets real stroppy when things don't go right for her while shes cooking, she had several arguments with some poached eggs and I had to walk out the kitchen so she didn't see me giggling lol...onto my card for today which is for our new challenge at Crafts and Me challenge...the supertalented Carol is our host this time and she chose the theme of Bows and Butterflies, I used one of the new digi images from Crafts and Me, this stunning image is by Sara Burrier and is called Be Mine, isn't it perfect for a wedding card don't you think...I coloured it with distress inks and used some stunning Prima Paper for it, this is from the Madeline collection and is a 12x12 sheet called Parsley Place...I added a double blue organza bow and punched butterflies and finished with a Kaisercraft sentiment...the fabulous sketch (which I turned sideways) is from Sketch Saturday and I'm also entering it for the Anything Goes challenge and Truly Scrumptious challenge too...there's something very important in our lives going on today which I cant tell you about yet but we need loads of positive vibes from all you lovely people, I know they work because they have before...so could I ask you to please send them by the bucket load and I will tell you all about it as soon as I can...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one and don't forget your thermal knickers lol

Your colouring is beautiful - I can't colour with distress inks and get an effect as subtle as yours - beautiful, and the papers are lush too.
Hope things pan out for you, sending good wishes too.
