Butterfly Kisses

Well, it's been another eventful day in the life of Emma...oh the joys of living in London town, huh! Don't get me wrong I love this city and you probably would never be able to take this girl out of London! It's a stunningly, beautiful capital but the downside is crime and it is on the uprise... Fortunately, everything has worked out ok, the police have done their job and hopefully, that will be the end of it but it really does make you think twice about who is outside your front door!!

Anyway, back to the world of craft and yesterday, I spent the day in front of the TV with the wonderful Mr Holtz...he is such a genius and unfortunately, I will have to admit to the fact that my credit card did take a bashing! But hey...he's worth it!! lol Now, I can't wait for all those packages to arrive with my Tim Holtz goodies!

In the meantime, I did make this little creation and I hope you like it.
The stamps that I used on this card are from a set that I bought recently on QVC and are designed by the lovely Marion Emberson. I made the background to the image by using a Big & Juicy inkpad, "squidged" it onto a craft mat, spritzed it with water and then dragged the paper across to give this gorgeous watercolour effect. I then stamped the images onto the paper using an Archival Ink Pad. As finishing touches, I added some punched butterflies, die cut flourishes and a button, tied up with twine!

Right, there's work to be done and unless, the crafting fairies want to spread their glittery magic...there's only one person who can do it and that's me!!
See you soon and take care!
Love Emma

  4. Tim Holtz seems to cause many a credit card to take an undo bashing! o_O oh's worth it in the end for the cards you make! :D
