Can I not just do one thing at a time? Ok so its the butterfly within me that makes me have a million things on the go at once, but how can I stop starting?  No matter how much I try.... I keep starting new things!

I decided the other day that I was going to change the headder of my blog...

'creations by a butterfly' although i'm still 'flutterby trina' and I always will be!

what do you all think of the new title?

I have been so far behind on things, that trying to catch up is impossible! So many half started jobs! Oh well, thats life and I need to deal with it! OK so I have been busy today, mostly paying nurse, to my sick husband.  He has (man) flu, he slept till 12:30, got up, ate and has promptly gone back to bed.  

As he has (man) flu, I thought it would be very unfair of me to be clattering about and making noise while he slept... and so I made the difficult decision and I crafted! 

Ok so yes its made me more behind, but I don't care! 

Now is it just me or is this little one just SO adorable! This is Baby Cakes, A Ragamuffin, she is just so cute, the dummy in her mouth and the little pony tail just made me fall in love, She reminds me of my Nancy actually, she always has her dummy (or bo-bo) as she calls it, and she will often have a bottle in her hand too! She is available from the Saturated Canary shop here.

For this card I took my inspiration from the fab sketch over at Saturated Canary Challenge Blog, I was so excited when I found out about the blog (although it has taken me sooo long to make a card for it!)!

Now here is what i have created! 

I apologise for the poor colour, its very windy and dull here today! I took the photos in the kitchen as I thought the best light was in there but obviously not!  I wish it would warm up a bit, if it carries on being this windy the For Sale signs on my lawn will no longer be standing!!! 

Well there you have her! I dont think she is my best attempt at a card recently but im pretty impressed with her! Oh an you will be so proud of me... Guess what I have remembered to do???.... yes I took note of what colours I used! I used my copic pens to colour;

Skin; E02, E00, E000 (her cheeks were done with R20)
Eyes; E57
Dress; RV13, RV23, RV34
Hair; E50, E51 and E53

 A5 card blank
 bazzill black 12x12 
Basic Grey Gypsy
