Happy "Butterfly"day

Hi Lovelies,



I am playing along at Seize the Birthday's first challenge, which is this wonderful sketch.  I want to get organised this year & not only have Christmas cards ready, but also birthday cards.  If you are like me & never have enough birthday cards this blog is perfect.  As they are doing female birthdays & male birthdays every month.  Perfect for getting a heap of cards made.

My card is fairly simple this afternoon.  Partly because it's so HOT!!!  I can't seem to get the mojo happening with colouring in.  So I went with this cute Butterfly die cut from K & Company.  I received it as part of a swap early last year.  I also used some scraps of Rose Bouquet on this card & the sentiment is from Kaisercraft.  

Well I'm off to veg out for the rest of the arvo & try to stay cool.
