Hello again on this very wet morning and it looks like it could be here for the weekend which is a shame as Bury is getting ready to receive the Olympic Torch tomorrow.Tonight I am staying at my daughter's so that tomorrow we can watch the torch pass by right below her apartment so we will get a really good view and hopefully get a picture so that I can show you it next time.

Todat my card was inspired by the sketch over at waltzing mouse sketch challenge and the colours from colour q.

Thought I would try something a bit different and use some acetate on the front of the card and give the effect of the white butterfly flying in the air. You will notice that once again I have used one of my favourite flowers in fun foam as well as the butterflies.

craft items used :
Spellbinders - Tags Five, Beaded Ovals, Grand Squares
Cheery Lynn - Exotic Butterflies Small
Waltzingmouse - Fancy Phrases, Pic-nic Patterns
Color Box Pad - Coral, Turquoise
Hobbycraft Ink Pad - Yellow, Light Blue
acetate, fun foam and ribbon

Well off  now to pack a bag and fingers crossed that for a couple of hours tomorrow while the Olympic Torch is in our town that the rain stays away.Enjoy your weekend where ever you are and hope your weather is better than ours.
Take Care
