I feature one of those packets today in a Designer Series Paper Blog Hop with some very talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. You may have started the hop here but you may have come from a demonstrator in Victoria, Sue Madex, and wow I love what she has done with the DSP!

Cardstock: Confetti White, Whisper White, Melon Mambo Just Add Cake Designer Series Paper

Happy Mother's Day...Beautiful Butterflies

Just a very quick post to wish all the Mother's in blog land a happy day on Sunday. Mother's Day is always filled with mix emotions from me as it's 12 years since the passing of my mum, but it is great to remember all those wonderful times we shared.

On Saturday, I held my regularly monthly class and we made this card which features some wonderful Stampin' Up! products the big shot and dies together with the designer series paper (remember if you buy 3 packets this month you get 1 for FREE) and the all matching accessories with only the sentiment using a stamp.

Stamp Set: Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Cardstock: Marina Mist, Very Vanilla, Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper
Ink: Marina Mist
Accessories: Big Shot Die-Cuttiing Machine, Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die, Marina Mist 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Word Window Punch, Pearl Basic Jewels

I love this double layered butterfly with the sponging around the edges with the pearls to set it off so delicately.
