Waiting for the butterflies, ladybirds and bees


This card was ever harder than the last one, I spent all night on it and still did not finish it. It took me another two hours today to get it done. That is quite unusual for me as I usually get the idea and that is it, but again I made two different toppers before I got it right.

I think though that I got there in the end and I really like the way it has turned out, what do you think?

The papers are from the Strolling Through the Park One Day digi kit, from Just So Scrappy Two at, they are very, very nice. I have stuck them on with foam tabs for dimension. The Image is a digi image, The end of Summer, from Mo’s digital pencils at I coloured it with copic’s then I coloured the centres of the flowers with gold gel pen and finished the image with some green chalk. I used some flowers from my stash and toped them with the tinny buttons from papermaina. Lastly I added a ladybird from my stash.

Hope this is OK, Lynn

    RE the commenting trouble. Ive had that before and it was a problem with blogger. Eventually it just started working again. Its frustrating but there's nothing we can do about it on our side.
    IN saying that......
    Have you tried (just in case~ sometimes it works) unplugging your computer or at least restarting it? It works a miracle sometimes. I know people always say never unplug your computer when its running but hey, it works for me! lol

  15. Hey Lynn, sometimes your settings prevent from leaving comments when the comment box is in pop up form - my laptop is set up like that. Your card is just so fun and spring like - I cannot wait for spring!! Thanks so much for playing at WHOOPSI DAISY challenge this week:)
