Hello , so happy that you called in . Welcome to my room .
Another warm day in Adelaide . Makes for a cheery mindset . While Hubby and I were walking through our nearby park yesterday we saw lots ...lots of butterflys and we both said that we really appreciated being able to " Take time to appreciate little things around us ."
Then last night, as I began to create a card for and the week 12 challenge 'Off Centre' ,  I  remembered that and knew I had to apply that thought to my creation .

White Gloss card
Sponging block
Groovy Guava, Basic Black  inks
Sentiment from Imprint.
Image from Stamp-It sets.

Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.

What a gorgeous card! The image and sentiments are just beautiful.

Great to have some sun. We've had lots of rain here in Sydney and my LIM entry reflects the wet autumn weather we're having.

Hi Mum

Great card!! I love the story that inspired this card. The silhouette image against the block of colour is very striking.
