Daffodil / Butterfly Hedgie


Now for those that know me well - you will know that i don't do Butterflies !! (I think it's because when i started card making 5 years ago, that was all we did for a year !!!), so when i saw a challenge and it involved Butterflies, i thought oh no what do i have - but as all the rest of the challenges seem to be about Halloween and i dislike that even more, as i think it's a money making exercise brought over to the UK from USA by the shops and luckily for me 3 year old son doesn't really know anything about it.

Fortunately for me i did find something butterfly and also i had had it for ages - the papers were part of a pack that i was supposed to use at the Blackpool Retreat in January (but unfortunately couldn't go, as OH was ill), the grand adhesions to match the paper i've had at least 2 years (as i also have the 12x12 papers of this set too), the stamp is ages old too and the MS punch i bought on a shopping trip to Pontefract, Yorkshire whilst i was visiting OH's family in April - so in future in this time of economic climate, i'm going to have a longer route around for items before i do a challenge.
