Lemon and Lime

Busy, busy ,busy - when i first started teaching, this time of year was a dream - but now the workload just seems to build and build as you accelerate towards the Summer. Unfortunately this leaves limited crafting time - I've got loads of Good Luck cards to make for staff and students who are leaving so quick makes are going to be the order of the day. It's a shame that i'm not on strike tomorrow I could have spent the day crafting. Amber had her first day at the High School yesterday - why did I feel more stressed and worried than the day she started primary school?

I was rummaging in the drawer and came across another aperture card that I had passed over for several years - the colour brought to mind the Allsorts challenge and i thought i would give the colour combo a go. Not sure I've pulled it off - and it would help if I photographed my cards in the daylight - instead of waiting til 11 o clock at night. However, i'm going to submit it anyway. The background stamp and the butterflies are from Kanban, the punch is from Martha Stewart. This punch is so easy to line up and it works perfectly every time, I would thoroughly recommend it. I used a pigment ink this time and the glitter I added stuck to it creating a lovely sparkle but I don't think it really shows in the photo.
