Live Laugh Love


We had a lovely day yesterday at Hunstanton. Grace, Lynsey's daughter had a great time paddling with her doll and even had a pony ride on the beach. We did a lot of walking, the sun was shining though the wind was a little cool at times. By the time we took them home, got home ourselves, had a meal and watched New tricks on TV it was time for bed. All that sea air and an early start yesterday had tired us out so I will be catching up on blogs today.

I have seen several beautiful cards lately using sentiments as their main focus and I really love the Inkylicious ones that Nic (Coops) uses. I found them on Joanna Sheen's site and there are so many to choose from. I restrained my self to buying just two at the moment. I teamed it with some gorgeous new Prima Lyric papers, Cheery Lynn die cut butterlies and a large Marianne die cut butterfly. A few pearls and DI Victorain Velvet and job done.

Challenges
As You Like It Favourite shaped card other than square and why (I love easel cards as there are so many different styles of them and they look so effective) 
Charisma More than one fold 
AGOAC Anything beginning with B (Butterflies)

I don't know where to start with what I love about this card because it is all so gorgeous! I do really love butterflies so maybe that's it, and they look fab with the big sentiment. Or maybe it's the lovely easel base... or the pretty colour scheme...the whole card is so elegant :-)
Hugs, Kat x
