Every so often my computer does a mahoosvie
upgrade which normally either happens in the background
or as you close down but not this time oh no.
It decided to shut down all my programs last night
just when I was trying to get my scheduled posts
and Mr Linky up and running along with this post
so I had to give up and leave the computer to it!
Thankfully everything seems to be in order this morning.
So somewhat late is my inspiration for
my current Butterfly challenge.
Talisman = a species of charm engraved on metal or stone to which wonderful effects are ascribed.
Originally the card was going to be in yellows
but when I was sorting through my papers I caught sight of this one
and it went so well with the little charm I had already
picked to use.
Papers are by Raspberry Road which I distressed around the edges.
I really went to town on the distressing gadget and had a ripping time
as it were.
Flowers are by Little Birdie 'Boutique Elements'.
Centres are glass lucite flowers that I have had for ages.
Felt spray by Artemio.
I raided my stash for the ribbon, lace, charm and gems.
The butterflies are Fly stickers.
I put loads of these into my Goodie bags but never
think to use any for myself.
I had enough of the papers left to decorate the
inside plus another butterfly.
Sentiment is by Woodware.
Just once in a while I'm pleased with a card .
I'm really pleased with this one!!
