Pansies for thoughts.

And there is pansies, that's for thoughts. William Shakespeare
This technique, to use a butterfly punch, to make the pansy flower, has been around for a while - I finally got around to trying it out today as I had a couple of cards I needed to make. A 90th birthday card for someone who has always had a great garden and one for a friend in the USA who is recovering from an operation and I just wanted to say I am thinking of you - friend to friend.
I followed a video here by Dawn Olchefske - I used Very Vanilla cardstock (as this was the only one I could find when the urge to create came!)

A Thank You mini-book

I had a birthday last December, and on my actual birthday with my sister and friends, Robyn and Col we went to The Summit restaurant for dinner. Col helped by taking some of the photos above and Robyn found the 'sixty margaret' on a building in Sydney city and so I just had to use on the cover of this mini-book. It opens up as shown. This was not my original idea - I first got the idea from a Stampin'Up! (r) project.
I had made this earlier but I did not want to post until they had received it. By the way the Strawberry Souffle was fabulous and check out the candle they put on it for me.
A great night, great food, great company.
