Just for you

Hi all,

I had a real urge to tidy out my craft cupboard today, so I went a bought new storage. Once Martha got to sleep, I really did try to sort things out, but I got sidetracked by some of my new birthday and Christmas stash, so I made this card and did no more tidying. Ooops! I've been wanting to make a card different from the normal square one for a while, and the challenge at allsorts -fancy folds made me finally do something. I found the tutorial for this swing card here and found it wasn't really all that difficult. The paper is by Little Yellow Bicycle and the pink heart card is the packaging from Daisy's doll's house furniture. She has learnt that I keep most things, because as soon as she opened her birthday presents she put all the paper and packaging into my craft cupboard! The butterflies are from my EK Success border punch (I can see it getting lots of use) and the flowers are Wild Orchid. The image is one of my new Penny Black slapstick stamps. I love this image. I would also like to enter this card into Penny black at allsorts - All you need is love.
