Pink Summer Butterflies for Tilda

Hi everyone hope you are all well, it's ages since I entered a few challenges so I thought today I'd try to kick start my mojo with a Tilda card , I used this lovely Fairly Butterfly Tilda and glittered her wings with Art Institute transparent glitter and coloured her with Copic markers.
Other things I used;
 Magnolia Butterfly die and Spellbinders Butterfly die.
Martha Stewart round the page deep edge punch
Round heart edge Nestie
Summer Sentiment by Whimsy 
I have entered this into the following challenges

Stunned !!!!

Morning all and what a lovely day it is down here in Gosport on the south coast of the UK, the sun is shinning and the sky is a beautiful shade of blue and I'm feeling very happy...why you ask .... well to be honest although I am always overwhelmed at the kindness of my fellow crafters this morning I am totally stunned .... You might remember a couple of months I told you about a lovely British lady living in the USA that I found selling lots of yummy goodies on eBay called Ali,  Ali's Store .
Anyway I have made a couple of orders from Ali store over the last couple of months and last time I ordered she very kindly offered my readers 10% off their orders that week if they mentioned my name when checking out which I thought was so kind of her.
Well this morning I have to say it was like Christmas in my house I just can't believe the kindness that arrived with our grumpy old postman !!! lol
look at the photo OMG !! this lady is one of the kindest store owners I have ever come across, I keep looking at everything and stroking it !! ha ha almost all of this is a gift from Ali , Thank you so much Ali.
Girls if you get a chance today just pop over and take a look at all the yummy things Ali's has in Store
Don't think coz the store is called "Ali's scrapbook Outlet" that she just has stuff for scrapbooking
.....Oh no there is something there for everyone , you'll be amazed and amazed at her prices too
Well my day can't get any better I'm sure but I hope you all have a day as good as mine.
Hugs.......
