Blooming inserts!

I've spent most of the day making the 'insides' to cards I'd half finished. It's my least favourite crafty job and every time I do it I vow to finish the inside of a card each time I make one - or else I end up with 20 half finished cards lying about the place. I've got a few images coloured and good to go but I am making myself finish this job first :(

Today I've got a beautiful Saturated Canary image called Honey to share. She is currently me favourite (but this changes quite often). The papers are Papermania and are beautiful but you can't see any of them. Bad girl - I will endeavour to embellish less. (Yeah right!)

My aim this week is to enter some challenges - I must force myself not to be super lazy.

I've used lots of Sizzix dies here - the fence (coated with black ink dauber) butterfly border, weathered clock die  and tattered flowers. The dragonflies are a Magnolia DooHickey and I think it's my most used die.

I'm going to go finish these cards; might have a cuppa first though. Super hugs for the weekend. Oh, and guess which numpty missed her blogaversary? What a prize chump. I'm going to get a little bit of candy together and hope to be giving some away next week. Mwah! Hugs, Jayne xx

I'm entering this into:
Divas By Design  - use 2 or more patterned papers - I've used 3 but hidden them well!!!
In the Pink - Use dies/punches
Crafts and Me Challenge Blog - Circles - sentiment and weathered clock die
The Squirrel and the Fox - Anything Goes
