Butterfly Bear


Well H did get a present from his 'Valentine' (well his best friend Chloe) - he got white and strawberry Thornton chocolate hearts, which he say's are 'gorgeous'. I thought 'Les Miserables' was good, but it didn't make me cry, and although the lovely 'Hugh Jackman'  (whom Alan and I were fortunate enough to see in 'The Boy From Oz' in New York, 8 years ago) was in it, he still can't sing as well as 'Alfie Boe', who just sends shivers down my spine. H and I are so busy this week, i'll need next week to recover !!!

I love this sweet image and it gave me a good excuse to use it, as there are a few 'Wing's' challenges around, papers are DCWV - 'Blossoms And Butterflies', Corner Die is MB - 'Macarena Corner', Sentiment is Woodware - 'Tiny Phrases', Butterfly Punch, MS -'Pop Up Butterfly' Butterfly Die - Cherry Lynn, I decided to matt it all on to Silver Mirror card, as it co-ordinated well with the papers.
