LOOK WHO FLUTTERED HOME!!



Hello Everyone,

Back home safe and sound, nearly broke....but had the time of my life.

Their sales were crazy over in Aussie at the Gold Coast, just about bought a whole new wardrobe..lol..except the crafty stuff took priority...and spent most of my money on dies..[photos at the end of the post if you're keen..]

But today we are here for a new challenge over at...

               FLUTTER BY WEDNESDAYS

and this week[scary as it is]..is CAS...



Single layer card....stamped the butterflies using a foam backed stamp from a candy win from Lisa Jane  aaaages ago.

Coloured them up with different copics and stamped the sentiment, and that is from a magazine freebie "Cardmaking and papercrafts..[great set].



Got a bit of a bend in it as it is only a single layer..and did a squiggle line around the edge...done!

You can check out my expert teamies CAS cards HERE... and link up your cards while you are there, just remember your BUTTERFLY or FAIRY..

Photo time...



Dies...dies...



More dies....



and MORE dies....I'm in die heaven..



A few copics and another key ring with ice cream cones [how cute]...and of coures ladybugs...gotta have the ladybugs.


Some distress inks and the cutest little vials with fairy dust and pirate gold...



And then the overload of paper pads...yummy.

So there we go...I'm a happy camper, and this lot should keep me occupied for awhile..

I have seen these dies all over blogland, and just cannot find them here in NZ..so was overjoyed when I found everyone I wanted but one..but I'm sure he will turn up somewhere..lol..

Thanks for stopping by..will see you on my blog rounds..

Luv CHRISSYxx

Firstly, your card is wonderful! I so like all of the color which really pops against the white. Perfectly lovely CAS card!

Secondly, you are going to really enjoy those dies. I recognized many that are in my own stash -- they all are lovely and cut wonderfuly!

Lastly, I am so glad that you had a wonderful time. I know you hated for it to end, but now you can spend your time playing with your new "toys." Can't wait to see the beauties (and I know they will be) that you create!

Hi Chrissy, Love your card! Those butterflies are just gorgeous.... I always think I want to draw and outline, but just not brave enough. lol.. Your's looks fantastic. OMG... it looks like you had a grand time shopping!!! How fun. Love all those dies. Looks like you are going to be having fun for a long time. I have reently fallen in love with the Memory Box dies myself. One would say I am obcessed. I think the cut so nice and they really are priced pretty well. I do have a couple of questions for you, what die are you looking for and what die cutting machine do you use? I am thinking of getting the Big Shot as my Cuttlebug is getting really warn out from all the years and cutting. =o) Have a great day. Hugs, Lisa

My heart has odd palpitations when I see your shopping sprees. When you posted that you were going on your vacation again, my hands got all sweaty and my heart raced, thinking back to last year's shopping spree. YOU DID AMAZING. My gosh, the dies look fabulous and all you goodies are just the best! :)
hugs to you Chrissy and I'm so glad you had a nice time.
