Inspired by Nature

The challenge this week for Make My Monday is to use nature as inspiration and I've chosen butterflies for my card.  There are some lovely ideas on their blog and also a very pretty card for mid week motivation so do take a look by following the link. Backing paper is from My Mind's Eye and the stamp is from Penny Black with the flower heads stamped twice and cut out for dimension.  The butterflies were also stamped and cut out.

Covered Notebook

I really must apologise yet again to my followers and friends for my lack of blogging - 'things' seem to have been ganging up on me one way and another, culminating with my car breaking with a resounding bang and I'm debating with myself whether I should give up driving or get something to replace it and keep going.  Anyway you don't want to hear about my problems and I have been visiting blogs but sadly not always finding the time to leave comments.  I've also been doing a bit more stitching rather than making cards and I thought I'd show you a little covered notebook made from some cute fabric available in my local shop and a scrunched flower motif made using a clever Clover template.  Not exactly rocket science but it is a handy little slip on cover so that when the notebook is full it can be replaced with another one (I bought 5 for £1 recently - bargain I reckon).
