The card I'm sharing today is from the The Greeting Farm

Dahlia  and had this rubbber stamp since the beginning on my blogging..

Little cutie...colouring with Faber Castell pencils...

The tiny butterflies were  off cuts from a border die that I never used as it cut terrible...but the butterflies just fell out..

Papers...MME 'Tangerine" and made a curve in the clear stamp for the sentiment...

The side view...nice and simple card...

For my POTW I chose this gorgeous mini album from #60 Linda

This is really flips and flops,and goes side ways, and opens up..fabulous.
Thanks for sharing with us Linda..

So there we are...hope you all had a wonderful weekend and will catch up with you all tomorrow..

Thanks for stopping by...was a long post today..

See you tomorrow.

Very cute! love the background paper too. Gorgeous mini album as your POTW. I'm just not in the festive mood yet. I bought my secret santa gift yesterday, but still have the grandies to buy for and not sure what to do for food Christmas day. Only hubby and one son home at lunchtime and everyone else coming in the evening and will already be full of Christmas Fare!!!! We normally have the whole hog, lol, turkey, pork and roast vegies followed by my own hand made pudding.

I feel like the worst friend ever as I haven't left you any kind of comments in forever, I have however seen all your wonderful cards and I am so happy for you and your new DT position. You so desever it as you are super telented. I also wanted to tell you just how adorable your little WS from The Greeting Farm looks with all here butterflies around here.
