A Whisker Away


Well i think i'm on the final end of the lurgy, by Friday i had had enough of the cough, so i went to the accupuncturist to help me shift it, it has taken a couple of days, but i'm now feeling a lot better - yipee - i hope any of you still suffering with it, recover soon too.  Now we will have to wrap up, as the snow and cold weather are on their way - oh joy.

Today's image is : Penny Black - 'A Whisker Away / 2378K /  2002', the papers are : First Edition - 'Dreamcatcher', you may recognise the butterfly die from my visit to Crafts U Love, i had to cut it and adjust it, as when i cut it, it was as tall as the card and basically took over !! Die-Versions - 'Butterfly Flourish', the sentiment is : Woodware - 'Circular Greetings', with a butterfly from the die in the middle.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are : 

Winter Wonderland - where the Challenge is 'Things With Wings'

Allsorts - where Challenge No: 293 is 'New And Cute' - the new is the Butterfly die

Sweet Stampin' - where the Challenge is 'Girly, But No Pink'

Penny Black Saturday - where January's Challenge is 'New' - mine is the new Butterfly die

Crafty Cardmakers - where Challenge No; 130 is 'Something Old And Something New' - the old is the papers and the new is the Butterfly die

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x

Glad to hear you have finally banished the lurgy. School sent my daughter a text 'plan of action' for snow days and l only thought we were getting a dusting - Caitlin looking forward to snow days already lol. OMG just checked out of the window and it is snowing a blizzard and road covered already.
Gorgeous card Sam - love that adorable stamp and pretty papers x Susan x
