Flight of the Butterfly...

Hello there guys well thank God is Friday!! It has been a horrible week for me so I am looking forward to some brighter times and this weekend is looking GOOD weather wise at least.
Today I am sharing some little treats I have made last week for all my Virtual club members.

Aren't they sweet? I love the cheery colours and I am so sad those colours will no longer be come 1st of October.
 I used Cameo Coral, Apricot Appeal and Ruby Red. Now what are the chances that out of 50 plus treat boxes the one that is punched wrong will make it right at the top in the centre? Look closely at the third box in from the left then look at the left wing.?!/?!?1????1!!1
 How did I miss that when punching, then when assembling, then when arranging for the group shot and only discovered it when I saw the picture on the screen? hard to believe LOL
Oh well perfectly handmade is overrated anyway.
To make the long scalloped border I used 2 punched scalloped squares then I stamped the small flutters from the Flight of the Butterfly set and the thank you so much little sentiment comes from the Tiny Tags set.

I used the So Swirly wheel to add some texture to the plain card stock before gluing the box shut. I love how you can take a plain uninked cartridge fill it with Versamark refill and hey presto you have a Versa cartridge for all your wheels. Great for embossing or just  a pretty pattern on plain card stock.
The big flutters were stamped in Cameo Coral ink first then the Ruby Red spots were stamped on top and punched out with the matching butterfly punch.
Inside a sweet and chunky treat (clue in the name) I know the club girls would have enjoyed while playing with their new goodies.
Talk about clubs I have 5 places left to a NEW virtual club starting soon.
To join please contact me on telemech01ataoldotcom
I also have a rewarding scheme in place.
I hope you will have a fabulous weekend till next time

Well even with his wing clipped, he is or she looks just perfect to me. I have to say, I also love these colours, and will miss them so much!

Thanks Monica.

These look lovely Monica. Am I the most unobservant person in the world? I don't notice anything wrong with the butterfly wing, I keep looking but can't see anything different
