Reality has limits but our imagination does not, so let it run free and your creativity will flourish.
My imagination helps me create unique work as I strive to produce beautiful things and grow in capability, experience and confidence. My goal as I travel this journey of creativity, is to share my work and inspire others so that they themselves, may create something distinct and original too.

My baby is a man today!
Well today, my youngest son turns 21, I just can't believe it. Where did all those years go? It only seems like yesterday I was walking around the hospital willing the contractions on so my new baby would be born. To this day I still call him my baby; He will always be my baby, much to his annoyance I think.
I wanted to show you his birthday cards today, but I have decided that I should first show you the butterfly card I mentioned on my last post. It is clean and simple but the stylish design could be used for a few occasions I think. I hope you like it.
I started with a 5.5" x 7.5" side fold card. The Spellbinders butterfly was cut in both ivory and brown. I wanted the brown one to act like a shadow, so I cut it down the middle to allow me to move each section slightly outward. On the background I used the Tied Together embossing folder and added drops of bronze pva from Creative Expressions. I also used a little of the pva for the body of the butterfly to add some dimension.
I cut some corners in coordinating brown card and aded some half pearls. Finally, I used a wrap of brown crushed silk ribbon through one of the Spellbinder buckle diecuts.
This was an easy card but a bit time consuming with the pearly dots and the drying time, but so worth the wait as the finish is always so effective, don't you agree.
Well that's it for today, however I will make time this evening to do another post for tomorrow to show you the cards I made for my sons 21st.
I am hoping to be blogging more often again now as the clearing and rearranging is almost done and what I have left to do can be done at intervals now. So, here's to catching up and creating something new. I even have a new Challenge in mind!!! (but that will come a little later this month).
I hope you are all keeping well and have not had any hardships with all this rain.
Hugs and best wishes Linda xx
