Butterfly Medley Inspiration

Hello everyone x

I hope you are all well :) x  It has been another busy few weeks both in my work and personal life.
We put our house on the market and sold it within a day to a lovely couple who want to move in the beginning of April as they have already sold theirs which meant that we have had to frantically find ourselves a new house, which thankfully we have now done and things are moving very fast :)  So if you thought I had gone missing again it is just that things have been very busy....exciting times ahead but after living in this house for almost 27 years you can imagine that although I am excited to be moving to a new house and area I am also a little sad to be moving from the house that I have brought my family up in :(

I hope you all managed to catch the Peacock Paisley launch at the weekend on Create & Craft.  I did try and do a blog post to make sure you didn't miss it but unfortunately my internet was playing up on the Friday evening and I then ran out of time so apologies if you did miss the shows. You can still watch the shows on the Create and Craft website though....I think :)

Here are a few Butterfly Medley cards.....again I am so behind with my posts I will share a few of them and then tomorrow I will share some of the Peacock Paisley samples from the shows.

Another beautiful collection which was a delight to work with.  I love the way that you can stamp and die cut all the butterflies out in one go like the flowers.  It saves so much time and Like I do with my flowers I now have a box of butterflies already stamped and die cut out in a box ready to use on my projects.

I will be back tomorrow with some Peacock Paisley projects to inspire you :)

Take care x

  6. Evening Nikki I saw your peacock shows at the weekend, beautiful colours. Love your butterfly medley examples hear this was a fabulous collection on my list to get when I can.

    I've emailed you a couple of times about the blog candy I won but haven't heard from you, hope you got my address ok. I can see you have been very busy, major headache moving house so good luck with that.

  7. Hi Nikki
    Lovely cards. I managed to catch one of the peacock shows. Another beautiful set of stamps and papers. Best wishes, Anne O

  8. Hi Nikki
    I watched your shows and recorded them for future inspiration, you did really well but i do wish the presenter would not talk over you and let you get on with the demo's, tut tut rant over.
    Its very distressing moving house Nikki, we sold our home after raising our sons, 30 yrs we lived there , and now after 8 yrs i still miss it .x

  9. Good to see you back Nikki - have missed your posts. I do have the shows recorded but not watched yet.
    Exciting times ahead for you - but bushy too.
    Take care

  10. Hi Nikki gorjuss as ever! I won the last H.C blog hop and they kindly gave me a $25.00 gift. If I spend it in the USA in their shop it will all be gobbled up in postage fees. Any ideas how I might be able to spend it here please??? x

  11. Hi Nikki, Wow !! how fast has all this happened, you have been very lucky, not only selling your house so quickly, but also to have found a house that you wanted so quickly too, no wonder you are in a whirl. I echo your sentiments, we have lived in our house for 32 years and I wouldn't want to move, it must be scary for you too, I think that moving house is one of the most stressful times ever.
    Your samples here are stunning, as always.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  12. Good luck with your move Nikki! It's never easy when you have been in one place for so long. Your projects are beautiful! Hugs...

  13. Hi Nikki
    Congratulations on moving to a new house. My word that was a quick turnaround wasn't it. I bet you were over the moon to sell it so fast. Now all you have to do now that you've found a new one if to pack everything up, THROW AWAY everything that you've kept in case you might need it ( which we never do). Believe me I know. Great times ahead for you all. These cards, well theyre not cards really are they but master creations. I look forward to seeing your samples that you've made for the peacock collection.


I hope I have inspired you with my creations :)
Thank you for visiting my blog & please call back soon :)
