Sneaky Peek - Butterfly Elegance - With All My Love in Frosted Mink

Hello Crafters

Only one more day to the launch of my Butterfly Elegance Collection on Hochanda :-)

I'm really looking forward to these shows and my demos for you (I may be a while on them!!)
They really are (if I say so myself) beautiful stamps and I've so enjoyed the 2 or so hours I've spent on each sample! ha ha

Here's another sneaky peek of one of my samples for you,.

This one was made using my 'From The Heart' Female Relatives Dies too and they work so well together,.. of course, I designed the dies to go with any style or theme of card,.. it's a lovely font and a delicate, legible (don't you just hate word dies that you can't actually make out what they say!) font.. have you treated yourself to my relatives dies yet?

I have to say too, that the coconut white foundations card really does lend itself perfectly to my Frosted Cosmic Shimmer colours,.. (it's a warm colour card and the frosty, pastel shades go really well with it)

Remember - I launch at 8pm tomorrow (Monday) night at 8pm (eek!)

Here is what I used (with links to them on my www in case you 'need' them)
