Well, what a week it's been. Bit of a whirlwind but at least the boys are now back at school so I can work without feeling guilty. They happily get involved with what I'm doing but I still get those pangs of guilt. Working from home takes juggling your home and work life to a whole new level and you'd think I'd have got used to it after all these years but it's not the case.
Yesterday, I was invited on Create & Craft yesterday as a Guest Presenter to showcase the Darice dies. One of the samples I made just happened to fit with this week's Daring Cardmakers challenge of using blue. How lucky was that?! I just love it when I can use one project for two purposes!
I've used the new Darice dies that you can use to die cut, emboss and stencil.
For the white glittery butterflies I used Darice glitter paper and for the others I simply cut, embossed then coloured with my distress inks. The 'Hello' sentiment I cut, embossed then used the die as a stencil to add the different shades. I adore butterflies and could happily use them on all my projects but then you'd be bored of seeing them I'm sure! The royal blue background makes the elements pop.
I hope that you'll join in with the Challenge and see all the wonderful cards that my fellow DT members have created HERE.
I'm very much looking forward to the weekend as my sister in law is visiting and we're planning on having a BBQ - making the most of the sunshine while it lasts!
Have a lovely weekend,
