Snowy & Hedgy

Hi,

Today we went to RHS Wisley - where they have butterflies in the glasshouse at the moment, they were fabby and it kept son and his friend happy all afternoon - result.

Todays card - mmm i really wanted to used the free image on the ABC Christmas Challenge of a penguin especially designed for them by Dustin Pike - but i wasn't able to, don't know if it's my inkjet or the fact i used twinkling h2o's, but it bled and looked awful, so i had to resort back to a PB instead - oh well it gives me a good excuse to buy some High Hope Stamps !!
