Up in the Air for LIM

Hi folks, I hope this finds you healthy and happy and if not I really hope you're all good soon :0)





Here is my card for LIM  This week the challenge is for 'Something up in the air' and I have chosen a butterfly. The aircraft/balloon stamps that I have were not inspiring me this week and I've used them all before.............



 The stamp is from Kaiserkraft and I just love the image. I stamped in black and raised the butterfly ( with Pinflair glue gel) which has been coloured with watercolour pencils.


Update:
I'm sorry I haven't been very communicative lately, I have had a few health issues to work out for myself and my sister has had surgery and is living with us until things improve for her. Time is taken up with hospital visits, District Nurse's visits and all that illness entails.
Luckily my health is now back on course although I've a bit of a head cold just now, I can manage that LOL!!!
I love to take part in the LIM challenges :0)
I will do my best to visit you when I can,
Hugs Gay x
