Butterflies @ Diva's

Good Morning just a quickie from me today as I'm away in the sunshine and it's time for a new challenge at


and this week Team A have the theme of

Butterflies or Birds

Not my favourite thing but I have a stash of them lol.
You think they are all pretty and cute but when you look close - they freak me out!

I did have this really in-your-face black feather butterfly to put on this card but it really gave me the creeps! lol you should have seen me trying to add it - I added it to the bin in the end! I went with a nice and not natural looking nylon variety!!
The papers are Prima Firefly and really vibrant, also you can't see my black pom pom edging but its really cute!

The image was kindly given to me by this weeks sponsor

These are such fun little images and colour up really lovely.
Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of the challenge, the prize and some beautiful inspiration from the Diva's.

That's it from me
Hopefully I'm laying in the sun somewhere hot,
I was a wee bit stressed and ran away from home for a week!!
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

If I have wiFi I'd like to enter this into the following challenge

Hi Laurie-lying-in-the-sun...

Ooooh I love this fabulous image and may have to pop over to this site... and you've made a stunning job of her... LOVE the colour choice and the perfectly matching DP.

I have a butterfly phobia IRL... and they always make a beeline for me... hate moths too.. so I'd have been the same about your feathery one!

Big hugs... now go order another cocktail..

Sonia said...

Just gorgeous creation my dear^_^
Beautiful colors and details^_^ Lovely image^_^
Big hug,

Lisa Minckler said... crack me up! My best friend feels the exact same way and moths just about send her over the edge! Hahaha...Which is why sitting outside on a wonderful Summer evening rarely ever happens as they flock to the light. ;)
Your card however is GORGEOUS and doesn't send off any 'willies' at all. Beautiful coloring, layout and embellishments and I love that big eye!!

Ooooh Laurie - this is stunning! Amazing colour choices and I, for one, love the butterflies! They don't freak me at all - snakes now, that's a different matter (oh and mice, rats, bees, wasps, flies, hmmmm I think that's about all - oh wait no put slugs in there as well).

Hope you are completely de-stressed.
