Butterflies & Bee's

Hi there

It's time for a new Paper Play challenge, and this week's gorgeous theme is Butterflies and Bee's... or I guess things with wings? LOL

For my card I have dug out an oldie Maggie - way back from the Chasing Butterflies collection, she is one of the very first magnolia Stamps I bought, so I thought it would be good to ink her up again:-)  So here she is!!

I have tried to so some feathering colouring but it didn't really work so great, but oh well... she still looks pretty good to me:-) Actually I was surprised at how my card turned out, I was again, so unsure about it, and it almost ended up in the bin:-(

I seem to have lost my motivation to get my cards done, it seems like they are taking FOREVER and ending up looking rather crap... or not how they were meant to be.  *Sigh* I guess we all get like that at time don't we.  I don't know how to pull my self up out of my "hole" right now, but I do know it wont be long and i will be back crafting away like there's no tomorrow!! 

So thanks for looking and taking the time to read....
