Butterfly thanks

My mojo has been AWOL lately. I spent several hours crafting on Monday, but only managed to fill my trash without creating anything worth keeping. Today I was lucky enough to leave work a bit earlier than usual after attending a course all day. After finally getting home (thank you to whoever it was who thought it's ok to do 50 mph on the A14 in rush hour in the right hand lane...) I snuggled on the sofa with a cup of tea and my collection of challenge blogs to try and revive my dead mojo. As usual that got the old creative neurons firing. I was super-inspired by the current Poppy challenge, I loved both the colour combo and the sketch. I also got a bit obsessed with the spots in the picture challenge from Stampin' Royalty and just had to add some to the card. I am also submitting the card to Addicted to Stamps which has the theme "Make your Mark" as I coloured the butterflies with markers.

Saw your card at Stampin' Royalty and had to come look at your butterflies! Beautiful.

I am new at blogging this year and would love for you to come visit me, too. I am a scientist at heart, but not working as one. lol... I identify with your statement in your "About Me" that mentioned that anyone can make beautiful cards with all the products that are available, even if they don't consider themselves too artistic.
Have a lovely day!!

Beautiful butterfly card. LOVE those colors together. My MOJO has been low lately too. It's nice when you can actually relax and recharge those creative batteries. Looks like your cup of tea and browsing was the trick. Thanks so much for joining us at Make Your Mark this week at ATSM.
