A few more leftovers

Hello there...

I'm not sure where the last week went or where May went either...
Thanks so much for your comments and kind wishes on my previous post... Losing my friend hit me very hard and I have the funeral to face tomorrow. Another friend lost her kitty too and, well, it's just been one of those times you know?

Still, life carries on and I've kept busy even though my head has been elsewhere at times like making cards that I forgot to photograph before sending so I can't share... But I do have one that I made awhile ago using up even more leftovers...


 I had a piece of vellum that I stamped and coloured with copics - more as a trial really - but it wasn't big enough to fit my frame in places hence the butterfly in the corner.


I like the bright effect of colouring on vellum and don't do it often enough... Mostly because it's hard to get pure white vellum here. When I did my friends' save the date cards I had terrible trouble getting the same white vellum so I hoard every little piece I have left.


 I've a busy few days ahead and today I'm looking forward to seeing one of the sweet girls I used to teach at Thursday Club... Her lovely mum is bringing her over and it's nice to know they still think of me.
On Saturday we are off to Cornwall for a few days so fingers crossed the weather will buck up for us.

Have a wonderful week... Happy Memorial Day to all my friends across the pond and Happy Bank Holiday to my UK friends.

You are so clever at using up all your scraps Ros anr this is so bright and pretty and I love the colours. I hope all goes well tomorrow, a difficult time I know, and have a great break in Cornwall. We are lucky that it is not so far away for us so have been there a lot of recent years and the coastline is so beautiful. Later in the week they have promised some much warmer weather so fingers crossed. x

Ros, I am such a big fan of yours especially for your 'left over' cards. Lovely colours and design. The vellum is a great idea. So pretty. Sorry that you are going through a difficult time. Enjoy your trip to Cornwall!

I'm back from my hols and catching up so I'm really sorry to hear about the passing of your friend Jeanie and I hope the funeral was a celebration of a life well lived. It is never easy losing someone you care about but we are so lucky to have a hobby that can take us away from our troubles for a time. I am always impressed with the marvels you create with leftovers and this one is no exception - so pretty!
I hope you have a wonderful break in Cornwall and the weather is good for you.
Hugs
Carol x

Hoping your Cornwall trip is a wonderful escape, my dear blogging sister. You are the best at making leftovers into cards--love this one! Hope you had fun seeing the girl from the group!

Those colors are brilliant on your white vellum! I love how you covered up the one area with your butterfly for a perfect save. Such a cheerful card at a tough time - good therapy. Hope it's a great trip.

This is so colorful and pretty, Ros! The butterfly in the corner and her dragonfly friend look intentional. It's a design I'm bookmarking! Have a wonderful restorative time in Cornwall where I hope the sun shines on you both, my friend!! Hugs, Darnell

I love that card - the colors are wonderful! And it seems like the butterfly and firefly are the ones saying hello.
