Butterfly's & Christmas

Hi Lovelies,

Last night I found a little time to play along with two of my favourite challenge blogs, Hero Arts & Try Stamping on Tuesdays.  Both challenges have sketches (my favourite kind of challenge) at the moment.  I was inspired by a pair of jeans that Lils' owns for the butterfly card.  She has two butterflies embroidered on them in pink & yellow thread.  The Christmas card was made because I had this cute Bugaboo Digi image already printed up.  Which made for two quick & easy cards.  I used Copics to colour both images. I don't know about you, but I find it therapeutic to colour in.  Especially since I've gotten a bit smarter & check to see what papers I have that I can co-ordinate with the images.  The pattern paper is "Holly Jolly Christmas" by Echo Park.  The pale pink paper has a hounds tooth pattern on it (not a stamp).  My wonderful friend Alice sent me this paper pad & I love it.

Well I had better do some mummy stuff now (just got home from Mothers' group & fed the kidlet) like putting Lils to bed for her afternoon nap, clean up the toys in the lounge & get Emsy from school.

Have a wonderful day xoxoxo
