Follow you're heart it knows the way

It's been a long time since my last post but I have been very busy buying a new house. After years of searching an several disappointments we finaly found our dream house, put an offer on and they have accepted. I have been busy sorting out the rubbish as I am determined not bring things we never use into this new home. We had made that mistake before.... you know.... Just put it in a box thinking "we'll sort that out later".

Anyway my new Sweet November Stamp Coriander came in several weeks ago and I have coloured her in several differways and colours. I missed several great challenges which I am upset about since I have gone back to work full time I have not energy to be creative. But I'm not a work today as I have a bad cough that has gotten worse and my work colleges weren't impressed yesterday with my coughing so I ran up to say I won't be in. I have heaps to do in the house but I thought I'll be selfish and make a card quickly before I do that.

I haven't done a Midnight Madness sketch for ages and wanted to do the previous sketch but missed out. Anyway the card below is for the sketch 51.
I used the Vintage Vogue DP paper and the butterflies were stamped onto glossy paper brayered with Kaleidoacolour stamp pad.

I hope you like it.

Keep Safe
