Butterfly and bits

Hello to my wonderful blogging pals and thank you for all your lovely comments and kindness. My desk is a mess and not because I have been busy crafting but it is a convenient place to dump things, a bag of buttons, a camera, torch, helpful notes etc etc. I did make a card from some bits and pieces that were lying around from pure playing, so apologies if I get where they came from confused.  
Last week I was posting two cards and one of them was a belated card and I was heading out the door with them and realised I had sealed it in it's envelope and not written my message. I think that says it all - I like my card making to be totally relaxed and at the moment I have a zillion (slight exxageration) things buzzing around in my poor wee brain. 
I have been lurking in the background and enjoying your blog posts so please all know that you are creating wonderful things. My keyboard is refusing to spell the things I would love to type about your works, I think it has to do with numb fingers from chipping render of a stone wall - see what an exciting life I lead. On the brightest of notes we have had the most wonderful weather and it does me so much good being outside. Anyway hope you are all well and enjoying life and hugs to all who need a bit of a lift.
