Butterfly Hedgehog


Well after a crazy and tiring week, we had a very lazy weekend - thank goodness (well today we did have the ultimate excuse, as it rained all day !!!, so because of this, we took the opportunity to go and buy a new mattress and went for a memory foam / tempur one and i can't wait for it to arrive now, as i'm hoping it will help me get a better nights sleep (as i'm still struggling with my shoulders at night).

I've used a stamp today, that i bought from a friend 2nd hand a couple of years ago and it was just perfect for a circle card - even using my Go Kreate dies, the circle never seems to be that big !!, i've also used the DCWV papers 'Butterflies and Blossoms' and my new MS punch - pop up butterflies, which i think is great and love the effect it gives.

How weird is that, I was using the same stamp for my CASE card, but not going to get it finished now.
Love your card.
