Dragonfly Dreams Stampin for Friends

Hi everyone,

I am so glad I got a few minutes left in today to blog and share a little cute card with you. I had to make some cards and quick today. Now whenever I am strapped for time which is let's face it, nearly every time I make a card, I tend to look for something cute to case and today was no different, only in  that I cased myself !!!!



I made this beauty while away last November to fabulous Cuba and while I loved it, I wasn't quite happy with the sentiment placement which was a result of a poorly positioned stamped elements, basically I didn't have room to add the sentiment between the stamped lace and stamped bee. So I thought I would re hash that card at home with all my supplies on hand and this is what the second lot turned out like.


This time I added more layers behind the centre panel and popped the bees up onto some dimensionals. This gorgeous bee is from the stamp set Dragonfly Dreams 

If you are a long time visitor of my blog you will know that I have a sweet friend, Carol who helps me stamp when I have tons to make. Well recently she was laid in hospital with a nasty infection but wanted to do something with her time and was limited as to what she could do. I stamped and coloured quite a few bees and she kindly cut them all out for me... thanks Carol <3 p="">
I love the FREE Delicate Details stamp set and used it as a background you can just see it peeking out here... 


And of course the wings and lace got some glitter treatment, simply dab some glue on the pieces and sprinkle with some dazzling diamonds... love the bling I do !!!!

 I will bid you farewell now and go and make some tea for the builders, they are working hard and we are making progress. Last time I updated you there were no floors and no ceiling in there.



 Well, by Tuesday we had firm floors once again, all electrics and plumbing were in and ready.... then at the end of today we even have some ceiling IN. We had a couple of set backs, the new roof had a few leaks which have now been dealt with so by tomorrow we should have a full ceiling ready for the spotlights to be fitted. Exciting stuff but so time consuming, I didn't realise I would have so many decssions to make I thought all I had to do is organise my craft stuff *laughing hard* ready to move in there. 


Thank you for your visit, I will see you again on Friday with a Fun Fold Blog Hop. Till then much love xoxoxo
