Play Date Cafe ~ A splash of Green ( and some Happy mail)

 


This week over The Play Date Cafe it is a Colour Splash week farewelling one of the original organisers of the challenges.    I have already entered one card (here)  but had this idea the other night and had some green butterflies coloured and cut out.  And tonight I pulled the card together....
PDCC83  #2

The butterfly stamp is from Rosie's Studio.  Coloured with Distress inks and cut out.  The pretty paper is double sided so decided the turned over corner would look interesting.  I then used the small piece cut off when layering on the card under the ribbon to allow it to be seen a bit better.  Added the sentiment from Hero Arts and a little stickles on the butterfly. 
And now look at the lovely mail I received from Nancy.... we swapped ATC's and a card too...

 thank you Nancy... these are so lovely.  It is so nice to have meet you through the Flickr group. 

Visited my back specialist today... looks like my surgery will be in July ~ hopefully the 21st or 22nd... ACC declined my request so I'll be seeing how much my insurance will pay... not all though!  I have to wait to get pre-approval and then I'll be able to organise time off work.   At least I know what is what now... 

Thanks for visiting, I do appreciate all your lovely comments.
