Hi all, today we have a new challenge for you to try out at
it is my turn as the hostess and I chose
our sponsor is

Here is my card using a Stitch Bear Digi Image that I won awhile back, I used my SU punch for the circles my EK Success border punch a butterfly punch and finally a heart punch, the paper is LOTV I have distressed the edges of the images and card with TH distress inks, I added a couple of gold sticker line borders to highlight the centre panel.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Thank you for leaving me comments about the Blogger problem that I think was Google as I managed to finish my bit of commenting by way of Microsoft Edge, I will try to resume my visiting today but I still haven't got rid of my cold and cough which is now causing me a few problems I am going to try and get a telephone appointment with a doctor so I can get some anti-biotics.  It takes about 3/4 weeks to make an appointment to visit the surgery so I hope the phone will be the way to go.

I hope that you will come join our challenge this week, if you would like some more inspiration please do take time to visit the other DT their work is awesome.

Absolutely love the design of your lilac butterfly card Lorraine and so striking with the hints of black.

These telephone consultations with GP's seems stupid to me, how on earth can they make a proper diagnosis. Luckily it's not come to that at your surgery yet, but we can see changes in things like three monthly reviews, at one time the nurse did the bloods and then you saw the GP, now the nurse does it all and you only get shifted over to the doctor is something is not quite right.

Hope you gets some antibiotics though, so many people seem to have these viruses, one of your sons had the chesty one and it's taken him weeks to shift it.

Beautiful card Lorraine, loving your colours. Hope you get that cough sorted! That's terrible having to wait that long to get an appointment. I thought we were bad with a week's wait! I posted a homemade cough mixture on my fb book you should try ;)

Gorgeous card Lorraine, love the 3 smaal black butterflies adding at the side. Didn't know you are on the DT at Fab 'n' Funky. I had made a card for the boys and girls come out to play challenge, went up there to upload it and it was closed already. So apparantly it stated a wrond expire date because I always write this down. Is it a weekly challenge blog ?

WOW! Lorraine, this card is absolutely gorgeous!! I love the pretty purple colors and the stunning butterflies!! :)

blogger/Google has decided to make our commenting even harder with verifying your not a robot! Grr!! So I switched my comments and profile to google+ so people don't have to verify anything! I won't be able to leave very many comments myself for this reason unless people start changing their profile to Google+ I do hope you feel better soon!! HUGS
