Live & Love Crafts # 12 - Birthstone - January Garnet

Hi everyone, hope you are all having some really good weather?

It's started to really feel like winter here in Melbourne we've had Frost - okay it hasn't lasted long but to my Pommy eyes its gorgeous having been born in January in the UK I love it!

My birthstone is Garnet/Amethyst as I am on the cusp (20 January), I much prefer Amethyst but have made my card Red to resemble the garnet, this maybe because I have made a few cards in purple lately..

Butterflies Tuesday Challenge

Hi everyone,

I hope that you are warm where ever you live.

Sorry I've been off radar for a few weeks lots of things happening here - 
I have been asked if I wanted to go back to work !!! gasp, shock horror, after being a lady of leisure for almost 4 years now. 

I said Yes, so now I will be back in a Medical environment again on a casual basis it will be like going back in time but not in a hospital, it should be fun!

It will give me a few more pennies for my wonderful hobby LOL.

Anyway, here is my latest creation "Tilda with Butterfly Jeans" 
I thought it would be fun to put a roof on this lovely Boutique stamp to make it look like a shop front. 

Supplies used:
Magnolia stamps 'Tilda with Butterfly Jeans' (Butterfly wishes Collection)
'Boutique' (Bon Voyage Collection)
Kaiser Card Stock
Spellbinders Dies
Fiskars & Sullivans Punches
Copic Markers
Little Darlings sentiment
