Goodbye old catalogue!

Good morning!
Did you have a good day yesterday? Keiran had a fab day! He went to his friend's birthday party and was so pooped he passed out for 2 hours when we got in, bless him! I did too lol! We finished off the day with a curry a 'beer' and 101 Dalmations!

I'm so glad I already had this card made ready to blog saved me from having to make one last night!
This is another card I've made in an attempt to use up some retiring DSP! 

The DSP is from the Regals stack and is Night Of Navy. The Washi Tape is some of the BRAND NEW Gingham Garden tape...isn't it gorgeous! I love how it works so well on such a dark background too! :) The fab 'distressed' yellow background to the butterflies was created by colouring an acrylic block with a Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write marker, then stamped it onto the card....didn't know how it would turn out but I rather like it!

I distressed edge of the panel with my distressing tool. The butterflies are the ever popular Papillon Potpourri and I stamped the big one in Melon Mambo onto card, then the Night Of Navy and Daffodil Yellow ones onto vellum...I'm really loving stamping on vellum lately! I finished by paper piercing using the Paper Piercing Essentials Pack for some added interest.

  1. Fabby card today Lizy and all this week. I've just caught up after a week of hardly ever being online at all. Don't think this week is going to be any better workwise and now I have Catriona's 2 Labradors for a week (or more) so I could be even less online!

    Hope I can find some time to see about getting some new SU goodies though!!
