Butterfly tree

Well hello everyone. I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and got some crafting goodies. I got some lovely new stash to play with and also some money from my Mum so spent some of that yesterday online. My craftroom has been closed for the last 2 days and I don't have much time to play but wanted to share this card with you which I made for a friend's Birthday today. The image is Little Claire which I edged with DI Wild Honey. The first time i have used this and I am liking it. I coloured the image with Promarkers and a Sakura goldstar pen. I added some glittery ribbon and Kars wooden butterflies coloured with a Promarker. The sentiment is Craftwork Cards.
Challenges:
Sketch n Stash Great sketch (new stash is the image)
Aud Sentiments Anything Goes
Charisma Anything Goes
Delicious Doodles Anything Goes
Scrapbook Sisters Anything Goes

There aren't many new challenges about this week but we have a new challenge at Winter Wonderland this Friday, which is a non Christmas challenge, though you can make a Christmas card if you like. Our current challenge is a thank you card with a recipe and we also have a DT call until 31 December.

No post today which was a bit disappointing as there are some Christmas cards I am still expecting and a parcel which was sent first class over two weeks ago.

So pretty Marianne; love the image and the extra butterflies you've added.! I bought a new paper trimmer - very boring but we can't survive without one can we!
