An aversion to blue

Good morning one and all, it's time for our mid month inspirational post where each month a member of the DT share something using their least favourite colour or one they rarely work with.

Our current challenge of Sew Special.......... sewing related stamping, real sewing, faux sewing or even a 'so special' sentiment.......which you will find here runs until 30th September so there is still plenty of time to join in or enter a second or even third piece of work and the chance of winning the fab £35 store voucher from Stamp Addicts

And it seems it's rolled round to my turn, always so strange introducing myself so I will get straight to it and can say quite unequivocally that colour is blue. I have no idea why that is really, but I rarely wear blue and whenever I need to create something crafty using the colour I am immediately aware of a distinct shortage of anything to work with in that colourway.

The card I am sharing is not a recent make, in fact it was for a DT friends Birthday last year, made especially for her as her favourite colour is blue, as are Butterflies. I had it sitting in my photo folder and knew it would come in useful to blog at some point and today is that day and it just happens to have some sewing on it as well, so fits in with this months theme.

Happy crafting.


  1. Beautiful card Brenda, love your decorative stitching.

  2. Absolutely gorgeous Brenda. Everything works together so beautifully, I bet your friend loved it x

  3. Blue is not at the top of my list either Brenda, and the only thing I regularly wear of that colour is my jeans!! Your card is gorgeous, the stitching is perfect and the butterfly is the perfect finishing touch xx

  4. So perfect and what a stunning colour combo too, Luv Sam x

  5. It's absolutely gorgeous, you should use blue more often! Hoping to join in with the challenge as it is right up my street.

  7. I love blue, wearing it as I type. Such a gorgeous card, lovely butterfly and loving the blues x

  8. For someone who doesn't like blue you didn't do badly! Personally I LOVE blue...

  9. I always find blue a cold colour, but there's nothing cold about this Brenda, it's absolutely perfect, papers, design and butterfly..stunning..
