Tidy room or post..??

Yeah , right.... easy choice to make !
So here I am , putting it off for another time.  Oh me,  oh my . I can just see me making a last minute dash at the end of July. See where Michelle said not to worry too much because she wont take up/ need  a lot of room . That's  the  sort of polite , kind and respectful Daughter she is . So now ..I REALLY NEED A TIDY ROOM!  May be I will take a before and after photo . Watch this space.

If you have stayed , hello and welcome .
Last night in previous post I showed the first , a Christmas card .
Today am showing the other two cards for workshop on Tuesday .
I began with Brocade Blue card as base . On a layer of Whisper White I added panels , leaving small borders .
Paper is from SU Patterns Pack ll .
Using SU punches I made tag of scallop circle
 1 3/8" circle ,  a 1 1/4" circle with hello greeting from set SU Hello Again. The butterfly is from SU All A Flutter. Ink used is Baja Breeze.
I adhered only the body of the butterfly and left the wings up slightly .
And for the last card..

I created this male card.   mmm, that did not sound right. Ok , a card for a male.  

Earthy tones and Autumn colours are , I find, quite a pleasure to use and easier to combine . So I am  very happy with this card.     
This card base is from Real Rust, with back  ground '  Sanded' stamped in Creamy Caramel. Father's Day greeting inked in Chocolate Chip onto Whisper White card , layered onto Chocolate Chip card with faux stitching on edge . Basful Blue and More Mustard made up the other tags, which I joined with brad then fanned out to layer onto card front . Attatched to brad I made smaller tag with image from set 'Be Happy', inked in Chocolate Chip onto Whisper White.                                      
 Hope that you , where ever you are , will be enjoying the day.
Cheers Shirley-Anne
