Butterflies .....

I've rekindle my love of butterflies and have been using them quite a lot lately ...
This is a card I made for my hubby's friend who celebrates his birthday today ...


I keep promising that I will make a stack of cards suitable for men ... I never seem to have one on hand and when it comes to having to do one ... my mind goes blank!


I guess butterflies are good for anyone right? And I do love this postcard stamp and wanted to use it ... I sponged a little Old Paper distress ink onto the leaves and found some butterflies on the internet ... I do have butterfly dies but I liked these and just did some fussy cutting


... added some pretty beads and a little thread of burlap too
You'll be seeing more butterfly cards ... Trust me

Other news ... Well my hubby's cousin who lives in Cornwall rang yesterday sooo excited! We'd just won a Gold medal in the Olympic rowing event and one of the lady rowers is a friend of our Cornwall family ... to think she'd only been rowing for a few years is indeed a huge accomplishment. 
And just so you know ... her family own a lovely ice cream shop in Cornwall ... so by my reckoning ice cream is very good for you!
Now aren't you glad I told you that?

The sun is shining here at the moment and I really hope it stays .. at least for today ... Ross and Sophia are coming and I am really really looking forward to seeing them .. It's been ages!

Have a wonderful day 

Till soon

These butterflies really are beautiful! And I love how you used the burlap, too - it's such a contrast to the fragile butterflies. As far as cards for men are concerned - I have the same problem... Congratulations on that particular gold medal - I've been watching so much I'm starting to get exhausted, especially as I've been back to work again since yesterday ;-)

I'll have to pass along your ice cream idealogy to my mother who's been eating it by the gallons lately. LOL I love your butterflies Ros. You used them beautifully on this card. Can't wait to see some more! Hugs!

Fabulous card, Ros, I love the colors and the butterflies! We have had some really nice ones that have shown up after the rain we had several weeks ago. Congrats on the rowing as well. I have enjoyed the Olympics so much! Have a wonderful Friday!

Stella said...

I already heard you had a great day:)
On to your card; I think that burlap is also a great addition on a masculine card. Don't know why but in one or the other way it's perfect:)
Gorgeous butterflies....
XXXXXXX

Such a positive post...I adore, butterflies, ice cream and Cornwall.
Congratulations to your family...wow a gold medal. We are doing well this week!
Yes men love butters too. Think of all those Victorian guys who collected them and stuck pins in them to store them in cabinets.
