Clearly Besotted birthday card

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all looking forward to another weekend and that you have some fun planned. I'm sorry I haven't been round to visit these last couple of weeks but my DH had an operation that he had been awaiting for a long time, and then I came down with an ear and sinus infection so it hasn't been a barrel of laughs around here. I wasn't even sure where my sinuses were before this, and who knew they could hurt so much? Oh well, the good news is that we are both a lot better and I hope to spend some crafty time over the weekend and catch up with what you've all been up to.

I wanted to play along with the Addicted to CAS challenge, and this time the code word is




I have a lovely little stamp set from Clearly Besotted called Good Times that had yet to see ink so I used it and came up with this card


 I stamped the tiny butterflies escaping from the basket and cut a few out and stuck them on to give more movement to their flight. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and I snipped it apart to make it easier to stamp it on 2 lines and to make it dual coloured.

I'd also like to enter this into to Addicted to Stamps and More

                                       GRAB OUR BADGE!

which has CAS as the challenge this week, and the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge which is anything goes.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

Hugs

  10. What a wonderful card. I love that it is a basketful of butterflies bursting forth. I can't believe you snipped out and remounted such tiny butterflies. That would have driven me to madness. It really adds to the card though.

  13. Hi Carol, long time no see....lol It was really lovely to meet you last week at the 'happy stampers' show, It feels like I've known you for so long but just never met you in the flesh! Well I have now and it was so nice to have a little chat, absolutely love your card and the layout too. Hope you and your hubby are both feeling better and on the road to recovery :)

    Take care, big hugs Vicki x

  17. Your card is darling, Carol. I love how you added movement and dimension by popping up a few butterflies! I'm so sorry to hear that you have been sick with sinuses. That can be horrible. How is John doing? I sent you an email on the 24th, but it might be buried in your inbox! I hope his recovery is going smoothly! Big hugs to you both, Darnell
