Just for Fun - Words

Made a card this morning which is a rare feat at present but the idea was to make up a small stock and as I already had some background papers prepared from a few weeks ago it didn't take the usual 2 hours a card (I am a very, very slow worker).  Background is a mix of mica and plain ink sprays and the gold really zings.  I used the text stamp from Stampers Anonymous Papillon in Brilliance and the word stamp is also Stampers Anonymous, butterfly is a Martha Stewart clear stamp stampad on a scrap and lifted with sticky pads.

It fits in with the 'Words' theme for this weeks Just For Fun challenge and as I haven't taken part for the last two weeks I thought it was time I got my act together and had a go.

My next bit of crafting for today is to try and mow the lawn in an interesting pattern then to pick Sorrel up from the groomers IN MY CAR yippee! 

Saw Consultant this morning -  gave the go-ahead for driving and a long list of daily exercises - could have kissed him but made do with a big thank-you.
