Butterfly Botanicals

Hi Folks
Hope you have all had a good weekend.  For those in the UK hope you made the most of your extra hour.  A short weekend for me as I was working yesterday so not much crafting time.  
Wish me luck as I have a hospital appointment tomorrow.  I have had a problem with my legs and walking any distance for some time.  The doctor seems to think it may be a circulation problem or possibly arterial so I am seeing the consultant tomorrow.  Not expecting to get any answers straight away but at least it will be the start of finding out what the problem is.  As you can imagine it is quite frustrating as any form of exercise is not possible at the moment.  Just want to be able to go out and enjoy a long country walk again.  

Anyway, enough of my ramblings and on to my card share for today.  This card was made using the Butterfly Botanicals CD from Kraftyhands.  This is a fabulous CD full of gorgeous images, papers and cards sets.  Certainly one worth looking at.  If any of you have been checking out the British Craft Network the guys have been demonstrating this CD on there.

I made an easel card using one of the card sets and lots of the yummy papers.  I used kraft card for all the matting and added lots of pearls and a little acrylic flower.  Love the colours in this one and gorgeous artwork.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  Thank you all so much for passing by my blog and for all the lovely comments you leave.  I am sorry for not getting around to commenting on all your lovely blogs at the moment.  This new job is really taking it out of me at the moment.
