Good morning and thank you for sharing a few moments with me....

Today is a new Challenge over at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Blog....our new theme is Summertime and it is hosted by the lovely Vannessa.....and we are sponsored by Crafty Sentiments Designs...

Do pop over to the blog and have a look, there are some stunning projects.....

It would be even better if you could join in....I do love to see all your wonderful work...and we have a Top 5 for every Challenge...

Here is what I came with , I hope you like it....

I started with two MDF heatts from none other than the MDF Man.....

Added some dries clear glue and it is best to use your fingers to spread the glue right to the edges of the place this down on the reverse side of your paper....I used some Graphic 45 leave the glue for a few moments to do its job....

I would recommend using a glass cutting mat too, it really makes the cutting out much easier.

I carefully cut around both hearts...and then did some light sanding...

On separate card I stamped the Clarity butterfly and my word ' Dream'

Back to the hearts and I added some colour around the edges with Distress ink ...Brushed Corduroy.

Plus some Spiced Marmalade ....also I added some D.I. to the word and the key...what a difference this makes.

I used some white flowers from Sweet Lilac Flowers, I also coloured these with D.I.

Tess decided to sit on my the next stages were done standing room for me!!!!

I used Spectrum Noir pencils to add some colour to the butterfly.

I did have fun arranging the one of those gorgeous little glass bottles...oh I do love them...

And this is what I came up is a closer look...

Thank you for joining me today and to all the lovely people who leave comments...I really do appreciate it...

It is Clarity Cumbria I need to get a wriggle on....

Have a good weekend, be nice to each other and see you soon
