This is a scheduled post as by the time you are reading this we should have B.T. coming today to sort our phone line out. They maintain that the fault is in our house and that there is no fault showing their end. The Doc did extensive tests on Monday isolating each piece of our equipment in turn which according to B.T. should have identified what was wrong as we would then be getting a phone signal back. Nothing, Zilch, Nada. Very quick to point out that if they come and find the fault is ours we will have to pay a call out charge plus cost of fixing. I am almost on the point of wishing it is in the house so they don't have to go digging the front garden and concrete drive way up. We shall see. Fingers and toes all crossed.
It is the second week already of the current Butterfly challenge and here is some more inspiration cards for you.
The first one uses Cadet Blue/Cerise/Circles/Butterflies.
The paper is from my stash and I have had a very long time. It is a favourite and I only have a small piece left now just enough for one more card. I used my Sizzix Scallop circles die to cut the front and back in pink cardstock and joined together at the top with a bridging piece. The design paper is die cut using my Xcut Circle die. I distressed the edges. It does look in the photo as if the butterflies(SU small butterfly punch) have been cut out from the circle but what you are actually seeing is three butterflies double cut in pink and then the design paper and layered up. I added silver stickles glue down the centre of the wings. The sentiment was salvaged from a previous project that I had altered.
The second one uses Cadet Blue/Candi/Butterflies.
I made a base card up using a sheet of white leather cardstock to make a card 4" x6". The die cut panel is by Creative Expressions 'Mini Striplet Butterflies in Flight'. I cut three tines and layered up, colouring one layer of the inset butterflies in Cadet Blue by using my promarker pen. I then attached the panel to the front of the card and glued the butterflies back into place. I had some white candi that I also coloured with my blue promarker pen. I have left the sentiment off as this card could be used for several different occasions.
Final card uses Cadet Blue/Champagne/Circles/Butterflies.
As you can see from these cards you do not have to use the card shape element in order to enter the challenge as there are several different prizes to be won depending on the elements you choose to use so I hope you can come and play. Challenge runs for another week. Hopefully by then my internet will be back up and running proficiently. Hands crossed behind back!!
