Butterflies and Flowers

Hello, and welcome!

Can you see me doing a happy dance....or, at least feel the effects of my size 5's stompin' on the ground?  Can you?
Let me tell you for why........
Our eldest grandchild, Hannah, got her exams results this morning.......after having tried to download them, along with about 7 billion  other 18 year old students, just after midnight!......(the system crashed!!).....and she has exactly what she needed to get into the university of her choice.....woopwoopwoop!!
She straight away got in touch with the uni to tell  them she would be accepting their offer, then got a phone call, a few hours later, from her second choice uni, pleading with her to take their offer!  She declined, mostly because the first one has a course that will better enable her to achieve what she wants.
We are so heart-wrenchingly proud of her........Go, Hannah-Spanner!!

Pheeewww.....sorry about that....need a sit down now....hahaaa!

Here's a card I made, yesterday, but couldn't upload because my naughty camera was having a hissy-fit......

I came over all girlie...heehee....and this was the result!
I started with a white card blank and added blue card and peachy polka dot paper, with a strip of blue and peachy floral paper, cut with a trellis border punch and a strip of peach grosgrain ribbon on  top........the papers are freebies.......

I never seem to have the time to sit down and get to grips with improving the way I colour hair and skin......but, I try.....believe me, I try......
This little cutie is from Digi Darla......sweeeet!.....coloured up with Promarkers.......I also tried to chalk a sky background...need to practice that, too!

I rolled a couple of flowers and added brown die cut leaves............

I created a sentiment on the ol' 'puter and printed it onto like a rub-on....ta-daaa!

Two little flutterbies.....die cut and coloured to match.......done!

See you tomorrow
