Take a selfie card (Crafts and Me/Hannah Lynn image)

Hi everyone, 

I was lucky enough to be chosen as a guest designer at Crafts and Me this month. Some of my favourite girly images are created by Hannah Lynn and this is one of my new all-time favourite images, isn't she gorgeous? You can find her at the Crafts & Me online store

My daughter inspired this center step card as she is 14 years old, so she's at that "take a selfie at any opportunity" age haha.

This month at Crafts and Me challenge blog they have the theme of "add wings", pretty easy, right? I have added a butterfly to my card.

My company, Flourish with a Bling, is having a massive $2 sale, everything is $2, see below for more details.

Flourish with a Bling have a massive Stocktale sale for June - Every product is just $2 !! All throughout June, everything is $2, no exceptions!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide.
