"Just a little bit Bright"

Hello and welcome to my little corner of Blogland.  Hope you are all well.  Today we started out very wet and miserable, however by lunchtime it developed into a really beautiful sunny day.  Rather windy but Hey! Ho! we can cope with that if the sun shines, well I can anyway.
Have to welcome my two new followers, thank you so much for choosing to join me on my Crafty Journey.   Also a big Thank You for all my regular followers who always pop in and leave me such wonderful comments.
I met up with my friends for coffee this morning, we still miss Hazel.  However she is back in Bonnie Scotland after their epic trip.  Really looking forward to hearing all about it.  I will not see Hazel face to face for a while yet.  Would you believe they are off on their travels on Saturday.  They are flying down to Birmingham to attend a Dinner then flying back Sunday.  Not that long till she will off again, this time she is not getting away without little old me!!!!  Hazel, Elaine, Kate (culliesocks) and myself will be on our way to NEC Birmingham.  My goodness it seems to have come so suddenly.
Elaine and I are going to Glasgow Hobbycraft Show tomorrow.  Early to bed tonight, up early and away from here at approx 7.45 am. 
If I buy anything (now I am sure I will just have to) I will let you see that tomorrow evening if I have any strength left.
Today`s card is just a bit on the BRIGHT!!! side for me, however it is made.  I will pop it along to the Tearoom with a few others, it "might" sell we will see.

White base card approx 6 x 8 
Pink Card Stock
White Centura Pearl from my Bit Box
Pink Card Stock embossed with a Crafters Companion Folder I found in the Boys Craft Cupboard. 
Cheery Lynn Butterfly Die (I think)  ....   it is a purple Die
Memory Box Die for the Swirly Bits
Flowers are waste from a Die
Tiny butterflies a Tonic Punch I have had for years

That`s it for today, hope your eyes are still ok!!! after all the brightness!!!!
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate that you take time to pop by
Till next time

  14. Morning Patricia,

    Lovely card, it is bright but some girl somewhere will love it. I am not a pink person but the White does set it off beautifully.

    Have a great time at all the shows.

    Love & Hugs

  15. Morning Patricia, this is such a pretty card. I love the white against the pink and the butterfly is a stunning die! Have a super time today, spend lots! Hugs Carole Z X

  16. Morning Patricia, I have this butterfly die, and it is indeed a Cheery Lyn die. I love this card, the fuchsia pink and white go really well together, (and there are lots of people who adore hot pink), loving the didi butterflies and flowers. I love it.
    Have a good day at the show.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  17. Beautiful card Patricia, I love the striking pink and of course the gorgeous butterfly! I was looking forward to going to the NEC but I am now going to Spain for 5 days next week so have had to scrap NEC. Susan x

  18. Love this real pop of colour Patricia. I bet it will sell. Have a great day and make sure you spend up! Jenny x

  19. Definitely "All things bright and beautiful! " Patricia. I'm not for the bright colours personally (although every now and again I do try!) but everybody's taste is different. And I adore that butterfly!! Is it a two part die? Enjoy SECC. Love and hugs from Christine xx

  20. Stunning card Patricia! That butterfly is lovely, I'm sure this card will sell quickly! Let us know!xx

  28. Elegance actually is the right word to describe your creativity Patricia, love how you combined all of those fine dies and the dash of pink makes the white stand out even more! Hugs, Ira xox
