Tonight's card i made for o/h sister for her 30th Birthday and the image i have used is one of the new recently released gorgeous Ladybug Crafts Ink number digi's from their Through the Ages range...these are just stunnilicious and i know i had to use it *smiles*
They did hold a blog hop for this release and i was lucky enough to win 3 digi's of my choice...how lucky was i!!
 I just thought i'd let you know that Kerry have a new release today with lots of fabulous cards from her talented DT and GDT...
omg...these look absolutely adorable images *smiles*

Anyhoo for my card i wanted to go for a simple mono card with a little glitz and a little bit dotty but still had to be girly and not over crowded with embellies because i wanted this to be all about the image and i think i sort of managed that...

Little Claire's...Butterfly Blossom

Hello me lovelies

I hope your all keeping warm and well!!

I know some of us have our kiddo's off school for the Easter holidays, well mine is going fine up to now but give it a few more days and they will be bored stiff...it doesn't matter what you do with them, they will still be bored...kids eh!!
At the moment they are keeping my younger kiddo occupied by making dens with him with our bedding etc and pretending they are hiding from dinosaurs and snap snap.
I'll explain a little about snap snap, snap snap is Jaykub's imaginary crocodile friend...if Jaykub for example spills his drink or makes a mess, he will blame snap snap...poor snap snap gets the blame for lots of things!!

Righto me lovelies i wont waffle on, i will just get on telling you about today's card which i made for Little Claire's using their gorgeous stamp called Butterfly Blossom...i so love this stamp but i am sure you will know that by now Lol
