Hello all.........

A beautiful day here with lots of sunshine, but the wind is bitter cold.
I am having a very lazy day, I think that the only productive things will be to wash the kitchen floor and make a meal at tea-time!

I made this for a friend at work on her 80th birthday......sorry for the photo quality, we all know how hard it is with mirri card  flashback lol.....

8x8 white card, mustard matting, spellbinders butterfly corners, nestie scallops cut in silver mirri,80 cut on cricut, ribbon and silver butterfly from Mei Flower, flowers, gems, stickles and pin from stash.

It is very pretty in real life but the mirri has picked up blues and pinks, must be from my top.

I am entering the following challenges;

Craft-Dee bowz challenge ----------------------hand made bow

Artistic Inspirations --------------------triangles

Dream valley challenge -----------------anything goes

Bitten by the bug -------------------cricut numbers/letters

I have had a squirrel visiting my garden for the past week or so...... it's only today that I realized it has eaten all my spring bulbs from the pots around the door, snowdrops/miniature daffs and crocus....... it will have more than a headache if I catch it! I love the native red squirrels but these are just tree rats and are so destructive!
Thank you for your visit, keep warm

Hugs Tilly x

What a beautiful card Tilly! I love that SB mat, so elegant! I bet your friend will love it! I think you did a great job of photographing this card and yes we do know how hard it is to get a decent picture of mirror paper, but it did it beautifully! Thanks for joining us at BBTB2 ;-)
