  1. Good morning Tina
    Oh what a beautiful card and the colours are so refreshing for some reason reminds me of Spring and those butterflies are sensational, they look so delicate almost as though they are ready to take flight. I don't know what you had in mind but this card is superb who ever it is for I am sure will treasure it, so please don't worry just keep on crafting and sharing your wonderful talent with us all you are such an inspiration, thank you so much.

    With love to you and the kitties.

  2. OMG ! If this isn't how it meant to turn out then goodness know's what you had in mind ! Spinning butterflies maybe ? Its stunning Tina. Is that the border you listed up top ? Its AMAZING and I MUST have it, it makes a wonderful frame to show the focal point.
    Next.... LOL.

  3. Helo Tina, another gorgeous card from you, the dies and and your design are just so beautiful, I love the butterflies, so delicate and pretty, Kate x

  4. Hi Tina flower, i hope you don't mind me popping you a wee line but since finding your blog i have a look in every now and then and it never stops to amaze me at how beautiful your cards are. I think you should be on one of the design teams flower with skills that you have in your cards. I am sure Sue would agree with me about your stunning cards. As i said before i hope you don't mind me adding by tuppence ha'penny worth. Crafty hugs flower, Norah (Glenochil)

    1. Norah
      You can put your tuppence ha'penny in any time, lovely to hear from you on my blog, and saying such lovely things.X

  5. I, like Norah pop by now and again, well to be truthful, I have you pinned to my menu so I don't lose you, so I do drop in fairly regularly and never cease to be amazed at the beauty and imagination in your cards, I try to be inspired, but like many, I couldn't afford all these dies. sigh. but it's nice to dream isn't it. Keeeeeeeeep crafting.

    1. Thank you Arlene for your lovely comments, I'm lucky to have a hubby that enjoys the fact I have found something that I love to do. I have always been arty, but I think when I came across Sue on C&C I knew instantly that's what I wanted to do. It's a wonderful hobby, and one I take on holiday with me when we take the caravan away. I never get fed up with it. Thank you again X

  6. Hi Tina,
    Once again anothe r stunning card....that buttermilk is so pretty and I love the buttermilk and white flowers they are gorgeous. I thoght I had all of Sue's dies that I liked but after seeing your card today Tina I just love those wonderful butterflies and the borders...hmm I feel a purchase coming on when I get back from our little break on Friday. You're a wonderful card designer Tina and you should be so proud of your work. By the way are you Tina from Sue Wilson's blog?

    Love Sheila xx

    1. Hi Sheila, Thank you so much for your lovely comments, and yes I'm from Sue's blog. I am the one that has my late Berkeley dog as my picture XX

  7. Hi Tina wow another stunning card the colours you have used are so pretty I adore the butterfly's are gorgeous, I have the spellbinders butterfly dies so didn't think I needed these but I love them they are so much prettier,I think they might fly home with me from Ally Pally.
    Love Lynda xx

    1. Hi Lynda
      I am hoping to go to Ally Pally too with my daughter. Maybe we can meet up in all the madness, I think the butterfly's are a must. X

  8. Hi Tina
    Have no idea where you wanted to go with this card but where you have arrived is Stunningville! As always, lovely flowers and a whole heap of fabness.
    Hope the kittywinks are coming along nicely and are letting you have a lie in now.
    Best wishes.

    1. Hi Ang, thank you, but you must be joking about the kitties, they are even more energetic, Little Bubble will claw at my hand for some food in the morning about 5 am and if I hide my hand under the duvet she gets under the duvet too. I would shut them out and let them have the spare room but at the moment we have my daughter Claire's cat in residence there. Claire and Toby come home from their very long honeymoon around America on Tuesday, and life can get back to normal. Whatever that is, and as we speak I have Summer The oldest cat trying to lay on the keyboard. Must go she is demanding a cuddle. X

  9. Another winner Tina - luv it xx GailT xx

  10. For not knowing where you were going you certainly landed in a fantastic place with your creation.
    I just LOVE this stunning card
