The Best Laid Plans

I have had a bit of a trying week - again! My poor dad was rushed into hospital last week having suffered a stroke so of course I dropped everything to go and be with mum - luckily it wasn't a bad stroke and dad is now back at home. Apparently it's related to his lymphoma cancer so we will have to wait now to see what treatment he will need.
The thing is though that there are soooooooo many exciting things happening at Stampin' Up that I am bursting to tell you about!!!! Don't be surprised if I post many times over the next few days!
Firstly though I need to update you about this week's challenge over on CAS - Colours and Sketches - we have some very lovely colours for you to use - take a look

These are beautiful colours and this is how I used them

My gorgeous sparkly butterflies are made using my Silver Glimmer paper and have been coloured with a Rich Razzlebery marker - here's what else I used

Materials - Stampin' Up
Stamps: Stippled Blossoms
Ink: Garden Green, Rich Razleberry, Perfect Plum
Card Stock: Whisper White, Garden Green
Accessories: Big Shot, SAB Embossing Folder (retired), Bitty Butterfly Punch, Dimensionals.
