Floating hearts and beautiful butterfly

Hi everyone!  In case anyone had wondered if I had disappeared, I am just back from a two week holiday to Thailand.  Glad to see my scheduled posts worked while I was away.  We'v had a rubbish return though - first off we went to pick up our car from the long stay car park at the airport and found that the suspension had broken so we had to wait around for hours for a tow truck.  We didn't get home until 3am!  And then we went to pick up the dogs from the kennels in the morning and our poor Poppy has been unwell - really listless and not eating so I'm very worried about her.  And then to top it all off, went through our mail and found that someone had cloned my credit card and went on a £3k spending spree!  Our punishment for having a fantastic holiday!

But anyway, back to my card for today!  Bit of a soppy title for this post, but it's exactly how I'm describing my card using some of those gorgeous Docrafts goodies!  See what you think...

The Docraft goodies I used were:

Blue Daisy paper collection (free download here)
Xcut Heart Nesting Dies set
Xcut Falling Hearts embossing folder
Xcut Butterflies A5 die set, 
Xcut Kushgrip Craft Knife
Papermania Monochrome Adhesive Stones 

I usually add a sentiment to my cards but I didn't think I'd need one for this card as it could be used for many different occasions.  Perhaps I'll stick on a sentiment on it when I decide to use it!  I think I'm going to give this one either to my mum or my mother-in-law.

Okay, I gotta go now.  If you like any of the goodies, you can find a Docraft stockist here.  I'll be back tomorrow with my Alicia Bel and La-La Land Crafts DT posts - see you then!

Beautiful butterfly Mary, and such gorgeous papers in the aperture too... looks so good, and like you say, suitable for lots of occasions!

I'm glad to hear you had a wonderful holiday, but I'm so sorry to hear about your problems since you got back - hope you can get the CC and the car sorted.... and that Poppy is back on the road to health! She must have missed you lots!

Big hugs

Oh no Mary… you're having an awful time of it…. I really hope wee Poppy goes on ok… and I hope you get the money back on your Bank Card… I had my account hacked a few years ago.. they drained my account and went on a shopping spree at PC World… I was so angry. Thankfully the bank reimbursed me but it was very stressful time.
I do love your card hun… it's absolutely stunning… the heart embossing is very pretty and I love the beautiful butterfly agains the pretty paper!
Hope things start to improve for you soon
Big hugs, Sue B xx
