Beautiful butterflies...

Good afternoon to you all...
I have been spring cleaning today...first the garden and then little ones bedroom.
The second one wasn't planned. She was ill yesterday and didn't go to school, then 3am this morning ...a little voice woke me up.."Mummy, I've been sick!"
So there has been a full onslaught of washing, cleaning and tidying. She is fine now!

My card today is a Penny Black hedgie having fun with the butterflies!

The background paper is by Dovecraft and is from a designer pack called 'Wild Blossom'. This also has butterflies on it.

I layered up lots of flowers with a brad and added some leaves and ribbon for extra detail!
I'm linking this card to the following challenges:
1. Penny Black Saturday Challenge...'Butterflies and Bees'
2. Charisma cardz...'Spring has sprung'
3. Flutterby Wednesday...Open challenge but you must have a Butterfly or Fairy.
4. Quirky Crafts...'Flowers'

I'm out tonight at a school fundraising 'Quiz and Chips' night with a Disco!
Should be fun... Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great Saturday Night!

  9. Aww Sally sorry to hear that your little one has been ill! Hope she is all better now. lol at your comment and I think you are completely right, it's just a case of the body saying 'time to rest now!' I am so bad at doing that :-) Funny that you can tell even at a distance, you must be a good mum ;-)
