I haven't vanished!

>> Thursday, 28 July 2011

Although I feel like I have been away from blogland for ages! It seems like every waking minute I am spending on the computer working on my business and trying to read and learn as much as I can to make it a success. And now the summer holidays are here so Thomas is at home and he doesn't like mummy being on the computer for too long! I can see a lot of early mornings and late evenings over the next 5 weeks!

I'm really missing my card making but I'm finding the thought of spending a couple of hours colouring an image and assembling a card is putting me off from even setting foot into my craft room. I'm determined to find a bit space in the day for 'me time' so I think that clean & simple is the way to go for now. These cards still take me a long time though as I dither over colour combinations/sentiments/embellishments!

So this card uses FTL150 from the Clean & Simple blog. I've used Kraft card for my base and bazzil card for the layers.

I gathered the seam binding by grabbing a single thread with my tweezers and giving it a pull! The idea came from this gorgous card by Kati. This picture shows the layered butterflies a bit better.

And I just had to take a close up of this gorgeous metal flower brad. This is the sort of embellishment that sits in my drawer and is looked at regularly but never used! It was perfect for this card though so I took a deep breath and opened the packet!

I'd love to know what you think. Enjoy the rest of your week.
