Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Wings! My 2nd DT card

Good morning everyone - hope you all had a fab weekend?

My weekend was fairly quiet apart from going to football on Saturday - we lost, so came home disappointed but never mind, there's always next week!

This week I'm going to be busy making 60th birthday cards for my mum. Will share these with you once I've made them.

Right today I want to share with you my 2nd DT card for Crafty Boots.  The new challenge launches today and you can join in here craftybootschallenges.blogspot.com - Things with wings.  We were overwhelmed by the amount of fabulous entries we received - so a big thank you to all of you who took the time to join us. Hope to see you again this time.

My card is a simple one this time which I made for my friend's birthday, using Tim Holtz vintage shabby papers combined with Creative Expression's stamps.


 The sentiment stamp above reads, 'May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun, And find your shoulder to light on, to bring you luck, happiness and riches, Today, Tomorrow and beyond.'  It is an Irish Blessing.
This sentiment is by Gustave Flaubert, author, who wrote Madame Bovary. The classic novel that, at the time, was seen as scandalous and both Flaubert and his publisher were prosecuted for irreligion and immorality.  However they were acquitted after a sensational trial, which saw the book enjoy immediate success!

I topped the card off with an Anita's sentiment topper dedicated to friendship, plus butterfly punches over stamped butterflies & added Glossy accents to create texture and interest. And, of course, a bit a ribbon!

Hope you all have a good week, thanks for looking.
Take care Zo x
