Sneek Peek "Pigtails and Butterflies"

Morning Simply Sassy Fans,

Wow what a fabulous weekend we have endured in the South East of England, temperatures in the 20's in April.  Went to Ally Pally on Saturday with my Sister and Niece and had a lovely morning looking at all the new crafting stuff available and then yesterday I went for a lovely walk for a few hours with hubby walking down the canal and stopping at a couple of watering holes, well one has to doesn't one! All in all a lovely weekend.

Today's card for the Simply Sassy inspiration blog is a "Sneek Peek", woo hoo.  This is Pigtails and Butterflies from Release 6.  There may be a couple more previews this week so be sure to keep checking back. There are still a couple of teamies waiting on there stamps, so hopefully they will receive them in the next couple of days in time for a hop at the weekend, so watch this space........

I love Easel cards but I just can't seem to photograph them very well, and I really am not doing this card justice whatsoever.  

 A picture of the card closed. I must of had my camera on the wrong settings as again this isn't a good photo, so I think I will retake when I get in from work.

Here's the little darling close up. 

A close up of the flowers. 

And one more.

  17. Your floral sprays are amazing & I love that butterfly. The fence is a lovely idea so she really does look as if she's in a garden. I love the way the shape of the easel echoes her hair parting. The frills on the doily accent the buttefly's wings too.
