 Hello everyone,

Well the birthday celebrations are now over., my gall bladder hates me and I reckon I put on 6 pounds, I'm very sure on that, so now it is back to business...thank you all for Birthday wishes and cards and gifts, so much appreciated, and thanks to my family for giving me such a special week..

Sharing some strawberries today and a butterfly...

Had this die forever and finally used it..

Inked the edges of the strawberries and glossed them up with glossy accents..

Those tiny white flowers were fun and the yellow bits that look like stars were supposed to be green..

Then I die cut the butterfly and covered his wings with clear acetate..

Love the striped papers and not too much dimension..

I have loads of these hearts, they are the negative of a heart slimline die, and I just cannot throw them away..

So added a few of them around..

Quite a few hearts actually, just filled the right gaps..

And there's a close up of the butterfly, he looks like he could just fly right off the card..

And my strawberry and butterfly card all done..

Thank you so much for stopping by and I will see you tomorrow..

I suppose you'll have to use the strawberry die more, this turned out so fine. I love the light airy feel and that butterfly is so pretty!
