Butterfly Lady

Well it has been a busy few days and fantastic weather.  Bit of a shock waking up this morning to find rain!   This did not stop me having the back door open, Harley requires it he thinks the cat flap un-necessary because we have big ape doors.  So door open onto the garden where there is a climbing rose and honeysuckle are growing, this is a favourite place for the sparrows.   So there was Harley in the craft room watching transfixed through the open door.  Sparrows happily oblivious to the wanna be hunter and probably unreachable anyway.  It was a sweet little scene.

Had a little play

A couple of weeks ago I stamped the Pink Ink eyes on to vellum but didn't use it.  It's been looking back at me since then.  So today it was trimmed to fit over a card base.  On the back parts of the image were coloured with ProMarkers.   Previous issue of Creative Stamper had a terrific stamp set the issue was focusing on mindfulness with images designed for colouring.  some of the stamps used on card, coloured and fussy cat.

Sentiment an old wood mounted Creative Expressions one, stamped and embossed with fine detail gold ep.
