Happy May Day

Can you believe it is May already?? It'll be Xmas card making time before we know it!

Today I tried my new Woodgrain impression plate from Papertrey ink.  I have seen lots of you crafting bloggers use this woodgrain plate and have always loved it and finally I have my own (thanks to coz Lynn).

I was inspired by the gorgeous butterfly on Laurie Schmidlin's card for Case Study this week. I did my own CAS interpretation of Laurie's card and used the colours on the challenge this week at The Play Date Cafe:

I stamped the butterfly (wild rose stamp), cut it out and just attached it to the ribbon and added a little gem.

And to finish a photo of me and my cousin Lynn when she came to visit me last week-this is before the big girlie shop. I am sure many of you will know recognise and know Lynn from the crafting world!
