I hope you are all well and you all had a lovely weekend.
Paul & I have now built the Summerhouse, and while I was having a disaster with my card this week Paul was busy painting the Summerhouse. Paul is a bit slap dash with a paint brush and when I went into the garden to see how he was doing I took a sharp intake of breath as Paul had not covered the fish pond which is located in front of the Summerhouse and it had a film of stain floating on the top. When he turned around he too was covered in willow green stain, but I was more worried about my goldfish. I managed to skim the pond clean, and glad to report that no fish were harmed in his slap dash episode. Now my card, what a disaster! Craig & his girlfriend went to a wedding on Saturday, I really loved having my Sonshine to stay overnight, and I dog sat Doug the dog, that's Hannah's dog.
I got up early to let Doug out to do his Dougie do's then fed him and let him in the garden for round 2. (Sorry if you are eating). Later in the morning Craig & Hannah rose from their slumber, and wanted a cooked breakfast. Hannah asked to see my card for my blog this week so I went and got it from my workroom and she very carefully laid it down on kitchen roll on the work surface. I then asked scrambled or fried eggs, Can you guess what happened yet? They said fried, so I fried the eggs and one decided to explode in the pan showering fat everywhere. The card was quite a way from the pan but it took a hit or 3. I can only thank Sue W, so much for doing tiny butterfly dies, so hence more butterflies on my card than usual. I could have cried, so I hope you don't mind a fat splattered card this week. As Rose from Chester told me Sunday evening "NO CARDS IN THE KITCHEN". I certainly won't do that again. Right here we go, hope you like it.

First I made my usual double matt & layer.. On the top I stamped Phil's butterfly stamp covered it with a sticky sheet and glittered it with diamond sprinkles. I made some flower with the peony dies and scored them with a ball tool for the veins. I cut some leaves and dandelion clocks and arranged around the flowers. Then splatter the card with fat from frying pan and then covered with baby butterflies. I promise next week I will be more professional.Well maybe!
Looking forward to meeting Rose & Tres at Ally Pally. Nervous though.
See you next Week
