Butterfly Cards

Hi,
What a beautiful day here in Somerset, after the bad weather we have had over the last week, its a real treat to see the sun, although the temperatures have remind high for this time of year its been very wet.
After the horrendous crash on the M5 on Friday night, my sympathies go out to any family who has lost someone, the weather was bad all day and the road would have been very wet, with patchy fog. At present the road is still closed and being the main motorway down to the West Country it does carry a vast amount of traffic. The cause of this accident is not known and may take some time to find out. Motorways are the safest roads we have and its been a long since there has been such a bad accident.
Back to today's post these two cards have been made with the same butterfly stamp and heat embossed. The top card I used red embossing power and backed it on red flowery card, with red ribbon and finished off with silver peel offs. The other card I used turquoise embossing power, with backing paper from Joann Sheen's Enchanted dreams CD, finished off with white ribbon. Both ribbon have come from Joanna Sheen's online shop and are really good quality. I have not made any cards for two weeks and these I was saving to use on schedule posts while I was away, anyway I thought it was time I put something on my blog and to say I am getting better slowly, this flu is taking a bit to shake off.
I have been having trouble with my shoulder, neck and arm for some time and tomorrow they are going to put a corrosion injection in my shoulder to try and to reduce the pain, just another thing in a long line of things this year, hopefully after our holiday in a couple of weeks time a the new year approaching life might get better, but I am not holding my breath.
I hope you like these two cards, I think by now everyone knows I love butterflies.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend, and until we meet again take care
Hugs
Margaret

  3. Gian wanted to send you the centipede he caught - he thought it might help your shoulder. Now he's miffed because I "disposed" of it rather than posting it in tomorrow's mail...
    Fox ... and Gian : )

  8. Hi Margaret, from what I heard on the news there were many hero's at that crash site, just normal people doing extra ordinary acts of bravery. Back to your cards...they are so pretty and delicate. I hope this will be a good week for you.
