Beautiful Butterflies

This week at Polkadoodles it's another sketch. We had to do a shaped flap and no fabric or ribbon to be used. Have I ever done a card without ribbon or a bow, don't think I have.

I have rotated the sketch

All the elements are from the All Around And Everywhere CD and Paper Boutique. The Image is from the Back To Nature CD, which can be found here.
I have made my favourite butterflies, I use them a lot. I make them using a small stamp from a set called Fairy Flutterfliy - Meeshelle, and they get a total coating of stickles.

This is also for:-

1. Aud Sentiments - challenge # 10 - Sentiment - Best Wishes

My baby started full time school on Wednesday, Bobby is only four, and same with my two older children it always feels too soon for them to be going. The house is silent and I've done more baking and cleaning than ever. He was very proud of his new uniform, and he let me go with out a fuss although he had tears in his eyes, and I could see the nerves showing through the brave smile. When I picked him up he said he'd had a good day, when we got home I opened his lunch box and it was empty apart from two slices of apple. Now at home he's a fussy eater and never finishes anything. He must have worked up an appetite. Just so glad he has settled well, It was me that was shedding the tears Lol!

The lovely Lisa has given me this award.

You are supposed to pass this on to 7 ladies, but I had this award a couple of weeks ago, so I would like to say if you pop by my blog and like what you see please take this award with my love.

Have a great weekend

Happy Crafting
