Thank You cards

I must appologise for being a bad blogger....I decided to decorate our dining room, thinking it wouldn't take long....boy did I get that wrong.  The room had a wallpaper border around it with a dark red (Rich Razzleberry in SU Colours) on the lower half of the wall and a light beige on the top half.  It took ages to get the border scraped off, then the red needed three coats of basecoat paint to hide the line in the middle of the wall.  Then to top it off, the new colour I choose didn't go on very evenly so needed two coats.  But it is all done now and today was spent putting things back in.  I now have to make sure the two men in the house don't start using it as a hording room like they did before..LOL

I am now done with decorating for a while, so I will try to blog more often..promise :-)

Today, I would like to share my May 'Thank You' Cards.  Anyone that placed an ordered through myself got one of these little cards.  I had already written quite a few before I realised I hadn't taken a photo of them.  What am I like.

I used the fabulous new colours Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry and my new stamp 'All a Flutter' available from the Mini catalogue until 30th September.
Here is a close-up of the butterfly, coloured in using Melon Mambo & Rich Razzleberry ink and then glittered on spots using the 2-way glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds.

and a photo of an individual card..
