Time flies and so do butterflies :P

Hello bloggers,

So it is going to be the 1st of March tomorrow... there flies another month!

Hope you are healthy and in good spirits... I went swimming after a long break and am happy with myself.

I made this card a few days ago but did not post it. I have been saving this lace for the last ten years!!! I got this from the haberdashery department in John Lewis and could never get down to using it because I loved it far too much. 

 I have stuck the lace on metallic silver card stock - somehow both the lace and card stock look much nicer in real life.  :( 

The butterflies were randomly stuck on the top as I could not think of anything else to fill up the empty space with.

As you can see, I am not letting go of my Fiskar's border weaving punch! Lol! Every second card I make seems to have ribbon weaving through it. Hope that is not too boring for you.

I don't have the time to look for challenges as I want to call it an early night. I am expecting a friend to visit me from Malaysia so I must call it a day so that I am all charged up for tomorrow.

However, I am going to enter this for Michelle's Monday Linky party - a real nice place because it has no conditions.

Happy crafting with lots of hugs where ever you are,

Hello Monioca. Another of your beautiful cards. I love the design and that beautiful lacy ribbon across the centre is gorgeous. The swirls on it look like it has been left by the pretty butterflies fluttering around. Great job.
Will email later sweetie. Happy crafting.
With love, Sandra xxx

Your card really is gorgeous. I just love butterflies and the lace is absolutely stunning. No wonder you've kept it so long. Monica, your little border punch is absolutely magnificent. I love how you weave in the beautiful organza ribbon - it's such a nice touch of elegance, isn't it? This is a gorgeous card, my dear. You are so right, time is flying out the door!

Hi Monica

Stunning card!!
The shimmery cardstock is paired perfectly with this pretty lace and the threaded ribbon looks wonderful.

The butterflies in free flight at a prettiness to this card.

Enjoy your friends visit.

Thank you for linking up to Make It Monday this week.

Michelle :-)

Just beautiful! I understand your urge to hoard that lace, it's gorgeous! Love the ribbon weaving as well, but my favorite part is your color choices. I just love to see kraft dressed up!
