40th Female Birthday Card - Monochrome

Good afternoon
 I would like to welcome Lynsey (WW teamie), Linda and Crafting Andy to my little section of blog land. Hello ladies :)

DH Matt went to a fishing match today and took his dad with him as a guest.  Again he did not win (he will one day - I have faith), he caught 15 fish totaling 6 pound and the winner had 30 pound.  However this meant a day for me all to myself.  

The weather has been glorious here today, and it was hard to stay in the Beach Hut crafting.  I took my son to work early this morning, hit Tesco's early before the crowds hit it and headed home for an early morning coffee in the sun.  I then decided to clean the oven - thinking "what a pain" that was going to be, however pleasantly surprised at the new stuff I got, which after four hours I did not even need to use a brillo and my trays were spotless and shiny new.  In those four hours I did a few other jobs and created this card for a friend at work, who is always very specific on what she wants, so I hope this fits the bill.
This is the mono "Capsule" range by Papermania with plain black card stock.  Using a cuttlekids alphabet for the words through the cuttlebug and creating the flowers from one of my punches.  The butterflies I have added stickles to.  Not my normal style and not taking over as a favorite I am afraid.

This fits into the Cute Card Thursday Challenge 107 - Mono Mania with it's black and white tones.

Well off to tidy up the mess I made in the Beach Hut and to continue with another crafty idea I have.

Chow for now
