Butterfly Bear

Wow what a busy weekend i have planned - tomorrow (Saturday) is the cardmaking fundraising event for Mencap in Newhaven and we are hoping it's going to be busy so we can raise lots of fun for a very worthy charity.  Then around 4.30pm the road i live in are having a few nibbles and drinks get together, so all the neighbours can get together and meet each other - we went last year and it was very enjoyable and nice to put names to faces. On Sunday is of course Fathers Day, so we will be going out for the day.

To me summer is all about seeing butterflies flying around and settling on all the lovely flowers - i don't use them a lot on cards, because that was all we seem to make when i first started cardmaking 5 years ago !, so i guess however lovely they are on cards, you can have overload !!

Right todays card has been made for the very talented Angie over on Docrafts, who so kindly made my gorgeous header and banner and i have been a naughty crafter and not sent her a thank you cards yet, sorry hun.

The Challenges i'm entering are :

Penny Black Friends Saturday Challenge - where Challenge No: 105 is a fabby sketch
