Not a card today! My Niece turned 21 this weekend, and I made her a sewing box from a little box that a very generous friend gave me.

Todays card is a favourite. I lean towards nature inspired cards when I am making cards just for fun, and this one is no exception.The designer paper is from Stampin up – it’s a retired collection, but I bought up big when it was available because I fell in love with it!Cardstock is stampin up early espresso and very vanilla, and I used my stampin up designer frames embossing folder and labels collection framelits. I punched out the centre of the embossed oval with an oval punch, and stamped an image from Stampin up organic grace stamp set to set behind the resulting frame.a little linen twine and a stamped and cut out butterfly finished off this one.I have completed a card order today, and now I am starting to organise my january classes, which will be here before I know it!
