Just Typical...

I spent two whole days surrounded by paper & pretty things & couldn't make anything to save my life! Then today, I found out the card I promised I would make my colleague Katie for her best friend's birthday was needed for tomorrow & I had only made a start on it! I got the 22nd July in my mind & I have no idea why. To make it worse I didn't like the way it was going & so I had two hours this evening to pull something out of the bag. I think I might get by with this creation. I left myself barely enough time to get a photo of it & realise I haven't had a cup of tea since I walked in the door, wet through I might add, at 6.45pm. I did dive straight inot a hot bath & eat, always a good idea to eat first ;0)

This card is made using leftover pieces of paper from Basic Grey Blush & a tiny bit of Sultry thrown in. One of my fav Paperbag Studio stamps came to my rescue (yet again) along with a piece of lace that, despite cutting lots off, never seems to shrink in length. The shimmery butterfly is leftover from the tag I made Audrey.
