This one sold instantly!!!

Hello lovely bloggers,

Hope you are having a decent day/evening which ever part of the globe you are in.
I had a lovely day with some friends over, we had a yummy potluck lunch and lovely conversation along with it. I don't know what it is about potlucks but they are such fun.

Now to my card, I have used a Hero Arts block to stamp the background in Aqua and then went over it with my green and yellow water colour pencils. Also glittered some of the flowers in the image. Stuck a butterfly and a flower alongwith some pop up glue over which I dabbed some silver nailpolish.


Am going to submit this card for the following challenges:

Crafting for all seasons - Things with wings
For fun challenges - Use a stamp
Paper shelter challenge - Anything goes

Tomorrow is Aleeza's sports day and she has been soooo excited about it since the last three weeks... But this afternoon, when I remarked, "Tomorrow is sports day, Aleeza, aren't you excited?" Pat came the answer, "No, I am not". And when I asked why, she responded, "Because I have been excited all these days, today I am not!!!" Some logic there...

See you soon.

Love,

Monica

The colors on this card are just marvelous and I never thought to use nail polish to add some flair to an embellishment! Great idea :)

I've been away from blogland for so long, I'm thrilled to hear that you were able to use some of the supplies and that your cards sold! Not that I ever doubted!

I will be back later to check out more of what I've missed. Many thanks as always for your kindness sweet blogging friend.
