Sugar Creek Hollow............

Wow another weeks gone and we are fast approaching Valentines day which is our next busy occassion at work, on Thursday I went to a meeting and got to try some of the new Easter Eggs that Thorntons are making this year, Banoffee, Eaton Mess and Lemon Merangue, I have to say the eaton mess one  is soooooo scrummy, strawberry flavoured chocolate with freeze dried berries and merangue mixed in.........sorry if this has got you all  thinking hmmmmm Chocolate, its part of the job to try them all, which is why I shall never be a size 14 again let alone a 12.

For my card today at Sugar Creek Hollow, I used the delish papers called Ella Blue by g.c.d. studios a lovely collection of browns and blues the papers have a linen texture to them and some even have a flocked effect, I stamped straight onto the papers using the Butterfly stamp set by Tim Holtz and then mounted  butterflies on top of two of them for added dimension. the ribbon is by Marianne, love the check effect.
