Butterfly Punch................

Good Afternoon All

I hope that you're all having as lovely a sun shine day as we're having in Shropshire today, it's absolutely gorgeous!  I think I might just about have enough time to show you today's card projects before heading out into the garden.

We had a lovely class, we used the butterfly punch for something other than it's original use; i.e. punching out butterflies.  We did use it to make a card with a butterfly and co-ordinating stamp set but we also used it to make some pansies.  How BRILLIANT is that!  I love it when your crafting tools are versatile, gives so much more scope.  I must say here that the pansie card was inspired by the lovely Peg and what a great idea for this time of the year when they're all outside my front door.

  1. Hi Loraine,

    How are you doing? Hope all's well with you and that you are having a good Easter weekend. The pansies look so pretty with the distressing on the edges.

    These two cards are LOVELY but the first one is amazingly creative... and I love the colour combo of the second one.
