Rock'n'Roll Melon Mambo Butterflies





I must apologise for my lack of blogging this month - but I have a great excuse! I had a very successful night at my craft desk the last weekend of May and had every intention of photographing and posting the cards on the Monday, but instead I welcomed our second beautiful daughter into the world - Bethanie. Since then, I've been caught up being a Mum-of-two and not knowing where time disappears to!


Here's our gorgeous girl at one week old - I don't know where the last month has gone! If you would like to see more photos of my cherub, check out this post at Katrina Barr Photography's blog.




I have managed to make a few cards, and made tonight's last weekend for a little friend of Luana's birthday. The girly colours and 'garden' inspiration courtesy of the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge were just perfect, and the flowers in the (rotated) Inkspirations sketch suited the rock'n'rolled butterflies brilliantly.





Not going to write a long post this time - must try to make the most of the time I can get to the craft desk while Bethanie is sleeping and I'm not!!




Thanks for visiting,

Natasha

Hi Natasha
What a perfect excuse not to craft! Congratulations on your beautiful little girl.
Love your card, the colours are scrumptious & it's great that you rotated the sketch to suit. :)

Hi Natasha,

ah I've been waiting to hear the news! Congratulations on the arrival of your new baby girl :) She looks very sweet indeed! and so does your card - I love the effect you got rock and rolling your butterflies. Take care and enjoy your two girls.
