Beautiful Day

Another Beautiful day here, three in a row !  although we are forecast for cold weather over the weekend.  My poor blog has been very neglected over the last couple of weeks, firstly I had a bit of a brainstorm and decided it would be a good idea to paint this room, big mistake, it took forever and I still haven't got everything sorted out and found homes for, one thing is certain I have far too much stash but even after a bit of a clear out I'm still struggling , several boxes still on the floor and on the sofa, I'm determined to try and get it sorted over the next couple of days.  

Also while the weather has been so good managed to get some jobs done outside, tubs and pots emptied and cleaned ready for new plants, OH has cut the lawn and I've done a lot of weeding.

Anyhow to get round to my card, managed to get my hands on Altenew Beautiful Day stamps, I had watched a video on using them so dug out my stamp press and had a go, not at all successful ! so I just decided to forget the stamp press and "eyeball" the stamps , once I'd found the pointy petal if was relatively easy to line them up. The butterflies are Stampin Up Watercolour wings which are also three layers stamps.  Need to try the flowers in different colours next time. I'd like to enter these challenges

  1. Hahah - I had to laugh about the painting bit. I just got done with a craft room redo that seeeeemed like a good idea in theory but left my blog begging for content! Hope it all gets sorted out soon!
    I just popped in to say that I love your cheery little card. :)

  2. This is such a beautiful card! Love the pretty butterflies. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. :)
