With gratitude

Gosh we really are seeing some rain here.  Ria and I had planned to go shopping in our local town of Bridport which is only 6 miles away but we had to turn around due to flooding!  In all the time I have lived here (about 30 years!) I have never seen Bridport flooded another 5 miles on is the coast and so far we are far enough inland and far enough up a hill that all the local flooded rivers are not effecting us, just as well its my weekend off or I'd have been stuck in Bridport at work!  It has rained non stop here for over 26 hours but it looks like it might be easing off now, fingers crossed.

Mind you it has meant I can spend time in my craft room and do some crafting (when I'm not checking out the flood pictures on facebook! very time consuming!)  Anyway here is a card that I have made.  I used papers from Barely Mine Designs, flowers, ribbon and pearls from my stash and the wonder butterfly is a die cut from Crimson Cloud which was part of my winnings from a challenge a couple of weeks ago.  It really is gorgeous. Finished off with a simple sentiment stamp from Papertray Ink stamped in green ink.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Bearly Mine Designs #42 ~ Ribbon & bows


  1. Hi Jac I really don't know where all this rain is coming from, it started off dry here this morning but it is now tipping down again. I am glad that you have spent some time crafting because we get to see the beautiful creations you have made and this is certainly a beauty, that butterfly looks amazing so do those papers, awesome work.
