Doohickey Die

My card making has taken a back seat lately, what with all the appointments my son has had to do with buying his first house & of course mum has to be there too. I have had doctors, hospital appointments myself as well as getting ready for my hols on Sunday.
This image was from a  set of stamps free with Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine, I coloured with Promarkers & used a MS punch to give an edge.
Papers were from a friend & I glittered up one of the edges as well as distressing the edges of the image.
Another MS punch used for the vine effect. Flowers from stash.
The butterfly & dragon fly are a Doohickey Die by Magnolia which my very good friends have bought me for my birthday.
Entered into the following challenges

Hi, Dawn! Wow congratulations to your son for taking this big step! I'm sure it's a lot of fun going house hunting with him. :)

This is such a sweet card! I love your coloring and the butterfly and the dragonfly are just so pretty. Perfect for your card. :)

'OLD UP love? Did you say D is buying his first house? OMG!! I can't believe it! I am so old...that makes you REALLY!!! old. ha ha. How exciting. Now the world is your oyster, you can do whatever you like.

Would it be so wrong of me to make my kids leave home at 15 & 16? It seems os reasonable to me. lol Wish him well from me. x x
