Hello Sunday

Today's cards are two of the quickest simplest cards I think I've ever made. I bought the butterfly washi tape a few weeks ago to use on my scrapbook pages as I love using butterflies across my pages to add movement. It's so pretty I thought I could use it on a card too and had a play around and made this card.




I thought it looked so clean and appealing I made another similar card, but this time using the colours from this CAS-Colours & Sketches challenge. I love the cool and classy colours and added a favourite sentiment that seemed fitting.



Supplies:
Ink: Ranger distress ink, cruched olive, frayed burlap
Stamps: Uniko Studio, Background Builders Round In Circles; Kaiser Craft, Life Sentiments
Card & paper: from my stash
Washi: from my stash
Punch: Martha Stewart, butterflies 
Embellishments: glossy accents

Back to yesterday's plans.  Well it was certainly cloudier than it has been, but still almost as hot.  Nevertheless I made four more patchwork stars and sorted all my squares into sets ready to sew.  Seems my maths is not too good as I need to cut more of the cream squares that are in every star and I'm not sure I bought enough fabric - oops! As this is my first major patchwork project I suppose I should expect the odd hiccup. Looking on the bright side it does give me an excuse to revisit the shop and get my fabric fix - I just love touching all the fabric bales, so pretty!

Thanks for looking.
