Better Late Than Never!

Happy July my friends, today is my youngest daughter's 21st birthday, and I have just no idea, where those years have went...I am extremely proud of my gentle, loving, and beautiful daughter, so Happy Birthday, darling Jennifer..

I am sorry that my DT card for Whoopsi Daisy is a day late!  I have had a couple of horrible days, Fibro wise and yesterday was unable to type, my hands do feel a bit better today, so I am sorry to say, you might be sick of seeing me today..I hope not! LOL.

Yesterday, saw the start of a new Whoopsi Daisy challenge - Pastel Colours, I used a pre-coloured image from Sheet 509.    I embossed the yellow pearlescent card with the Daisy embossing folder that came free in a recent craft magazine, I did not want to take away from the beautiful embossing, so I die cut the butterfly ribbon and extra butterflies from the same die...I kept the Yellow and Blue, combo throughout, as I thought is was lovely and fresh, what do you think!

Before I go onto the rules and prize for joining in with the Whoopsi Daisy challenge, I would like to draw your attention to the new FACEBOOK - Whoopsi Daisy Fan Group, we would love if you could come and join our friendly group.
