What did you think of last weeks Blog Hop?

Weren't there some gorgeous projects!?  I was so inspired after seeing everything the other ladies had made.

I was hoping to get my (BIG) order of goodies this week, buts not going to be here until Tuesday - when I am in Birmingham!  I also have another smaller order coming soon (just for me!!!) as another lady ordered the SU Starter Kit in September so I have another promotion (Woo Hoo).  That means a £100 product bonus, a certificate and pin.  She has only just started making cards and it worked out cheaper for her to join and get the kit & discount than buy everything she wanted.

Hope you have been having a good weekend.  My Hubby has had a problem this week with a persistent migraine so hes struggling at the moment, bless him - but after a trip to the doctors on Thursday, he could set up business as a pharmacist with all the tablets hes been given!  They haven't really kicked in properly yet and he has to go for a CT scan but I'm hoping hes back to his usual self soon.

Ian even hopes they will find his brain in there too!

Anyway back to crafting.  Here is a card I made for my Auntie Val & Uncle Bern's Pearl wedding anniversary a few weeks ago.

Auntie Val does the most beautiful parchment work you will ever see, honestly, its incredible.  I only tried working with parchment once, a few years ago, but I just don't have the time or patience to do it properly.

The card black is an A4 sheet of Shimmery White with a layer of Melon Mambo attached.  The top layer is also Shimmery White which was stamped in Melon Mambo Ink using images from the Wedding Sweet stamp set (My Auntie Val loves bright pink, so it just had to be Melon Mambo!).

The butterflies were cut and embossed using the Beautiful Wings Embosslits die and the sentiment stamped in Melon Mambo ink onto Shimmery White card, before being punched out using the Extra Large Oval and then matted onto Melon Mambo card (which has been die cut using the Lots of Tag Sizzlits 4 pack dies).

I punched the two of the corners of the top layer using the Scallop Trim Corner punch before assembling the card then added some pearls to the butterflies to finish.

Hope you enjoy your weekend, and thank you for taking the time to bob over.
