Butterfly garden....

Hello all...
Remember the spring toppers from my very busy desk from Wednesday?
Well, here is one of the cards from that session in all it's finished glory!

I did a couple of different colour variations but they all had on a Sizzix butterfly, watering can and flower.

My new buttons came out...I just love the little stitched effect edge on these orange ones.

I am entering this card into the following challenges...
1. Quirky Challenge....'Buttons'
2. Charisma Cardz....'Beautiful Butterflies'
3. Flutterby Wednesday....'Open theme' as long as you use a Butterfly or Fairy.
4. Papercutz Challenge....'Anything goes'

Today has been a 'taking stock' kind of affair. So many gaps to fill in my card baskets. So I have lots of cards on my table to photograph so I can show you this coming week.

I've had a very busy 'crafting' week at school making props for the year 3/4 production of 'Peace Child'. It's amazing what you can make with cardboard, paper towels and PVA glue. I will show you some of these as well once they are finished!
If the singing in the hall is anything to go by, it will be a great show!
Then of course we have had Mothers day cards to make and had a Daffodil sale!

Hubby went off to Football this morning mumbling something about an extra trip to Tesco and a Box of Milk tray!
Hope you are all having a great weekend so far!
More chat and cards later.
