The best laid plans

I was going to craft all day Saturday but it didn't go to plan.  Had a call from my sister, could my little niece please come for the afternoon.  So made butterfly cakes and cookies instead.  Today I thought I'd sneak some crafting in between preparing dinner and housework, only to find my stepdaughter at my desk, making cards.  So it's blogland for me! This is one I did have time to make on Friday evening.
It's a Crafters Companion Popcorn stamp, on nesties which are distressed with Worn Lipstick ink.  I have used Pink Petticoat lush papers and Paula Pascual stamps for the greeting.  The floral embellishment includes elements from Wild Orchid crafts and the charm is from The Works. I'll enter this one in the CC challenge for Feb.
I've  been tidying  as everything is getting so disorganised and messy.  I've done the peel offs and I bought in Home Bargains, a big glass jar and a storage box: so these have been used for buttons and pro markers respectively.  The buttons looks so pretty on display.  The next task is the drawer full of ribbons, I've opened it and then closed it again quickly, before they escape!
Catcha later
