Got The Blues with Gingerloft Challenges

Wow! Time is going by so quick that I almost forgot today is a new fortnightly challenge at 

Where does the time go?

This week ... We have...

Again this week I have used Gingerlofts- Freebie Butterfly Flight - What can I say, I am in love with this verse and it's FREE!!! You can have it too by clicking HERE!

And this is where I went with feeling BLUE!

The papers are from my stash of favorites at the moment and I have lots of lace too as I have been raiding my sewing stash that is overflowing!  The 3 flowers on the sentiment with the blue pearl centers are cut from a ribbon lace and I have added a small white scallop lace around the sentiment, and the blue flower boarder along the bottom is also a lace trim as well!   The blue butterfly I rescued from the packaging from some blue raffia I brought ages ago and I have 'blinged' it up with some clear and black jewels and given it a blue pearl following tail.  I have also given the card a soft distressed look by lightly distressing all the layers edges.  Yummy yummy lace and pearls!

On the inside I have added a tea bag pocket and again used the blue flower lace with pearl centers and softly distressed the layers.  I have left the message side blank at the moment as I am not sure if I am sending this to my step mother in law or if I should send it to my other grandma for Mothers' Day.   Oh decisions decisions lol

So ... have I given you the blues too???
I sure do hope so!

We really would love you to play along with us at

You have two weeks to have your entries in,
And you may enter as many times as you like.
