Hi Everyone!,

Hope you all had a lovely day!, been gorgeous here at Southend - on - sea and hopefully will just as nice tomorrow!!. Been busy in the garden this morning then I popped down to my craftroom to make a couple of cards for birthdays that are coming up in the next couple of days. Had to make the most of it because my next day off will not be until Friday, which seems along way of boo hoo, never mind!!

So this card I made is for my close friends daughter who will be 18 on monday, she is not into cutesy images as she is a bit of a goth, so I thought I make her a swirly butterfly card using one of my all time favourite stamps from creative expressions, and I must say this was my first stamp plate I actually ever bought!!
