Butterfly...Miss You

Hello friends
I'm on a butterfly roll! 
I've been eager to share this card with you because I like it!  
I'm sure you all have that feeling when you make a project - there are some you think 'that's nice' 
and others that you think...'I really like it!'  
I created this for Spellbinders and it has just been used on an email shot by Northridge Publishing
so I can share it with you.  
The other card has been made by Theresa Momber, fellow Design Team member - it is stunning.

Here is a close up picture.
The kraft cardstock frame has been made with Timeless Rectangles,
the beautiful butterfly is Les Papillions Two with a Bitty Blossom in the middle.
The sentiment is stamped onto a Framed Tags One.
The papers are Bo Bunny - Country Charm.

Yesterday Janice asked if there was a quick way of finding previous projects on my blog - 
there is a blog archive section near the bottom of my sidebar - it shows the title of every post,
but I appreciate that it still means wading through quite a lot of blog stuff.  
The quickest way is to 'Google' - for example, Janice wanted to see a post where I 
created a shopping list, if you search for 'Hope and Chances Shopping List' 
you will normally get the result.  (It is actually how I find previous posts).

Other news...I purchased a shelf unit for the studio/shop to display ribbons for sale.
I'm really pleased with it. I spent far too long arranging colours when I should have been 
doing things like cleaning the floor! 
Okay..rain rain go away!
Let's hope for a Spring like start to the week tomorrow.
Take care friends.

Hi Christine, gorgeous card the frame and butterly are lovely. Perfect cabinet for the ribbons. I would get the ribbons to look at and not use. You have displayed them beautifully.

Hi Christine. Two beautiful cards but being biased yours looks the prettiest 'cos it has a butterfly.

What a wonderful array of ribbons and the perfect cabinet to set them off.

I was hoping you'd be on C+C this week as well as Julia and Sue. It would have been great.

Hi Christine, Lovely card as usual and love the ribbon storage unit. You really wouldn't want a customer to come in and touch would you!!! Well I think you have done a lovely job on the shop. Loving the ribbons too, I'll buy the lot!!!

Really like the idea of using bitty blossoms over the butterfly. Normally the butterfly is the focal point. Love the cabinet with ribbons. I can see I will have to pay you a visit very soon. xx Janice xx

Love the card Christine - why not indulge yourself with creativity instead of cleaning floors etc. The ribbons look great in their unit.

Hi Christine, I love the card, it's very pretty..:).I also love the shelf unit for your ribbons. Please could you tell us where you purchased it, cos I would like to get one to display my buttons-in-glass-jars. Have a great aft/

Sue B said...

This is such a pretty card & the ribbons look lovely, much more interesting to look at than a clean floor.

Sally said...

Hi Christine, I like the shelve unit you have for your ribbons, and it goes lovely with the rest of the Shop/Studio. Just one suggestion, maybe have a little butterfly on the shelf unit on the top corner.

Take care

Rose in Chester said...

It's a very pretty card - surely that will lure spring along. We could do with it.
I've been thinking about cleaning my kitchen floor for a couple of days now, but there have always been some urgent beautiful cards to do..........
Tomorrow I'll do it........

Hugs, Rose
