Dreaming of butterflies

Hallo and welcome. It's taken me ages to get round to blogging but as I read so many other people's blogs I thought I'd give it a go.

And to celebrate my first blog post I want to show you a card I made using the new Cuttlebug embossing folder called 'Jules Jewels' or as I said to someone the other day 'Jules Verne' (who is he?? Is he an author or something? The name rings a bell!). Anyway this is my first attempt with it and I'm sorry to see that the picture is not brilliant but that's what you get when you are using the Nokia N96 phone camera. The colour of the pink of the card is much prettier in real life.

My lovely sister sent the embossing folder to me all the way from Australia - I couldn't get it in the UK and then when it arrived I suddenly saw it was available. See, I'm not the most patient of people and when I saw it I had to have it and I just could not wait to get it.

Anyway it is a beautiful embossing folder with butterfly swirls. This was the first thing I came up with. I used the gorgeous sweet Westie dog from Pink Gem Designs and the butterfly punch from Martha Stewart. And the swirly swirls are from the Baroque set from Stampin Up.

I'm planning on making this blog pretty and gorgeous but at the moment it's all a bit plain jane. Which is my middle name ... no not 'plain' but 'Jane'.

Yay for your blog, Liz! It was waiting for the right time to be "born". Happy that we'll be able to follow each other now....with Miaowski, too!
