Flutterby Flowers

Morning folks....I am ever so slightly miffed this morning....little Sis and I had planned to take a trip to our local car boot yesterday....with all our declutter stuff...oh yes she is also going all minimalistic and getting rid of all her old tat....but the ever reliable (not) weather man said it was going to rain....so we took a rain check....sorry couldn't resist that one.....and did it rain....of course not.....it was the most glorious sunny morning....it's a case of go with your instincts and ignore anybody remotely connected with the Meteorological Office.
At long last and a week overdue..the samples I made for the brand new download.....

from Funky Hand

now you know that I love simple cards and they don't come any simpler...due to the lack of wrist action after my little trip last week.....but rather cute and perfect for those "just a note" cards.





and this is a little cheeky one.....had coloured the front with Promarkers and when I turned it over to apply adhesive....well I rather liked the bleed through negative effect
and pop over HERE to see all the fabulous samples from my lovely teamies...
and don't you just love these dinky little scalloped cards from Craftwork Cards
 get yourselves over THERE for a tutorial on how to make some gorgeous flowers.....in fact a whole week of Flower Power and while you're there make sure to vote in the Blog Candy Competition.
Well that's it for today folks....nipping off for a quick visit to my favourite craft store...Simply Create.....to settle up with Jacqui for those gorgeous stamps she kindly delivered to me last week....before she puts my name in the window....and need to look out my crafty straitjacket and resist temptation hat....because no doubt there will be lots of new goodies for me to oooh..and aaah...over....and I thought I had better do this today just in case I am marooned again.....because the latest forecast from that numptie at the weather centre....sleet...rain and snow showers in this neck of the woods....are you having a laugh mate....it's SUMMER.
Catch up with you all tomorrow for a challenge card.
Hugs Kath xxx

Of course you should listen to the weather man, but just take it as the opposite to what they say lol. Pity you missed out on that boot sale. Love these gorgeous cards, lots of white space, haven't seen that on my cards for a long time lol.

Morning Kath,

Thought I'd pop in and say hello - your cards are lovely - and, if truth be told, I wanted a BUDDY fix! I haven't seen any posts from him recently (darn that weatherman, maybe he would have snuck on had you gone out to play yesterday!) Please give him one big hug - he is just such a beautiful golden boy!

Hugs

fab cards - and get you, getting all creatice with the PM's, I love checking the back of anything I colour in with them. I think its especially pretty when the ink is still wet and you hold it up to the light, if only there was some way to preserve that effect
have a great day quine

Very cute cards, Kath.
They make me feel all "summerly" I know it's not a word (but I though it ought to be!)
Thank you, for an interesting and inspiring blog.

Those cards are lovely, so simple and so effective. The clours are lovely, too!
