Butterflies & Flourishes

I finally managed to get a little bit of crafting done yesterday and it felt good lol....

Supplies: Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Butterfly Wishes', 'Happy Days' & 'With A Flourish' / Tools - Clearly Besotted Dies 'Butterfly Wishes Die Collection'

I think that the butterflies and flourishes work very well together....

Supplies: Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Butterfly Wishes Additions', 'Happy Days', 'Happily Ever After' & 'With A Flourish' / Tools - Clearly Besotted Dies 'Butterfly Wishes Die Collection'; Papertrey Ink Impression Plate 'Simple Stripes'

A mini thank you card....


....and a few more....

Supplies: Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Butterfly Wishes Additions', 'Happily Ever After' & 'With A Flourish' / Tools - Clearly Besotted Dies 'Butterfly Wishes Die Collection'; EK Success Edger Punch 'Scallop'; Papertrey Ink Impression Plate 'Aida'

I am very late in introducing Clearly Besotted's Guest Designer this month, the fabulous Tasnim of Cards and Bookmarks.  I love Tasnim's style, this lady is incredibly talented and I am so honoured that she agreed to  join us this month - thank you Tasnim!

Here's a stunning card Tasmin has made using My Cup of Tea, please pop by her blog to see more sensational samples....


Have a great day and sincere thanks for stopping by :) x
