Lemon and Lavender

Time for a colour challenge on Simon Says Stamps Challenge and you can probably guess which colours by the title of my post or even by my card. I've used the fabulous papers from Prima Sweet Fairy and my image is a Penny Black Slapstick call For Goodness Sake both available from Simon Says Stamps.


My large butterfly is the Magnolia Doo Hickey die along with the swirl, the centre paper I've run throught the cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and the flowers are Martha Stewart Cornflower punch with  a circle punch for the centres.
All finished with pearls, ribbons and a few smaller butterflies from an old punch.
Now don't forget we have a fabulous prize for one lucky winner but you have to be in it to win it. If you need some inspiration check out the Design Team.

Both my parents are in their eighties and the health has slowly been failing so much so you worry when the phone rings, yesterday I had a call to say my Dad was taken poorly and was at the hospital. At one point we were told he would be coming home and the next he's been admitted to a ward and is on oxygen. Hopefully today  we might find out what the problem is and arrange for Mum to go into to respite because she can't manage on her own so giving time for Dad to rest and recover.
