We are coming to the end of a long weekend.Friday was a Public Holiday in SA and greatly appreciated.

On Saturday I received a parcel from my sister in the Netherlands filled with a smorgasbord of cardie goodies , and spent Saturday afternoon and evening making cards .
What fun! I love surprise parcels. Filled with stamps , bling and other cardie accessories.

I am using one of them to enter into a few challenges , I am using my new butterfly stamp and grape jelly inkpad and really like the way this card has turned out .
The photo does not do it justice as it seems to have lost the beautiful purple hue .
I am entering in the following challenges:A Spoon Full Of Sugar Anything goes challenge and the theme over at AiFactory is the same .
I have followed the Simplicity blog for some time now but have never entered any of the challenges, but I think this card qualifies for the CAS theme, inspired by nature, and Butterflies seem to be very popular there .So i hope you guys like it (or as we say here you okes)

As this is a Plain and Simple card I am also trying my luck at the Allsorts challenge blog and hope that this week I might be lucky and perhaps win something ----failing that I hope I will receive plenty of comments.

Let me know...... (ps check out the artistic touch with the crystal glass)


  1. Firstly, congratulations on your parcel... what fun, enjoy! Your card certainly qualifies for the Clean & Simple look, which is what I am loving right now... this one is gorgeous Wendy. Good luck with those challenges... all good things come to an end and it's back to the old grindstone for me tomorrow... hugs Sharon x

  2. Oopsie, forgot to mention that I just LOVE the new look of your blog. Super for the season...

  5. You have captured the essence of this weeks plain and simple challenge perfectly, the butterfly looks so nice and the deep purple against the white is very striking..
