Dynamic Duos Challenge #45

I've been a little quiet this week. Lots going on in my life but I'm glad to see I am still getting regular visits to my blog! So thank you for keeping an eye on my crafting.

The weather is still cold and with snow threatening still, I have decided not to take Blaze to the Agility show this weekend. 5 days in a freezing van does not appeal.

The sun is shining today though which has cheered me up a bit, especially after getting so upset at the images of farmers desperately trying to free their livestock from the 15 feet plus snow drifts around the country. If I had the money I would have gladly flown to Scotland, Ireland or the Isle of Man and helped with the digging.

Not only is it their livelihoods under threat but for me the thought of those poor animals really left me distraught!

On a cheerier note I am entering a card today in the Dynamic Duos colour challenge. It is a little something that inspired me last night. I have used my Labels Collection Framelits to shape the card and the mat. Punched a butterfly out of another die cut, then backed it with a piece of embossed cardstock using the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder.

The stamped leaves are from Just Believe and the sentiment is one of my all time favourites but sadly retired, Sincere Salutations. One of the most versatile sentiment sets I have ever bought.

I hope you like it and will join me tomorrow for my challenge card for CAS Colours and Sketches.

Here is the challenge colour scheme:

Remember I love your comments and it is wonderful to see some of my cards shared on Pinterest.
