Flutterby Sunday

I've been wanting to do the Ismaki sketch but thought it wouldn't work so well for the last Christmas cards I wanted to do. So has soon as I finished the last one, I started thinking about this sketch and add Butterfly for an extra option, well you knew there would be one somewhere. So I used my favorites templates which I made myself, they're my favourite butterfly shaped, copied on photocopy at different sizes, unfortunately I don't have that copier any more and my new one doesn't do different size so the templates are getting tatty. I used Prarie Urban BG but I'm not sure now of the aqua coloured card, I used it to match the touch of green in the papers but its not very obvious.

More fantastic cards, this time from Jo, with a lovely glittered Tilda and sparkly snowflake.

And this beauty from Leanne, not only a fabulous cardmaker but her stories about her little horrors are so funny.

I managed four more layouts for the Secret Project which I quite pleased with still several to go but I feel I've made good headway into the project.

Lurrrrrverly card Debbie.

If your templates are made from paper.....worry not.
Stick them onto some stiff acetate and cut around them to strengthen them.
I use some chopping mats that I got from Poundland for making all my templates so that they never wear.
Another thing you could use is those big plastic placemats which I think are about 75p from Tesco.
Hugs and a Happy Christmas
