Butterflys everywhere!!!

Hello again, my friends...

Another day..another dollar..Monday afternoon, just finished work, and every muscle I have is aching...[groan]...My own fault... as I am not 10yrs old....I cannot do roly polys with kids any more...and hand stands are just..... ridiculous...but, oh! what fun I had being the class clown for a day, and it entertained 4 grandchildren on a beautiful atumn day.[but that is it..no more] lol..


Have two cards to share, as I never had a chance on Sunday, as I was a bit busy..mmm...

Challenge...buttons and bows and dont forget something with wings...
We have a fairy, butterfly papers, buttons shaped like flowers,and the bows are hair snaps on the side as this card is for one of my grandaughters..
This card is for a challenge at flutterbywednesday

The next card...more butterflys, a challenge at The secret crafter


Anything you want - must have a butterfly. The papers are MME, and the basket is a stamp that Ive had forever, cant remember the name, but it's been so versatile. Tucked into the basket are leaf dies, and little roses added here and there, as I didnt have enough flowers to do a floral arrangement..
Gold sticker butterflys. and pearls thingys that argued with me all the way.

So that's those 2 challenges, and now  I'm going to have a play with a few more photos, and try to make them small, otherwise we could be playing here till next Tuesday...so if this works, this was a quiet time on Sunday, with my boys.


                                                                         Just piccies of the boys copying my cards...............

Just too much for poor old ' HARRY'








Luv CHRISSYxx

Hi Chrissy, I am still smiling and chuckling over Harry. He looks like he is thinking "who are you calling old?" Love it. I also love your cards. They are both very beautiful and I too love the second one with the roses. Your boys look like they too had a great day and they seem to be gifted artists just like you. Have a great week. Hugs, Lisa
