I don't know why, but I am exhausted this week and am now missing the sun which disappeared yesterday. It was lovely while it lasted and I want it back please!! Alex has loved being able to play outside every evening - this photo was taken in the sun on Monday - so we either have sand everywhere from the sand pit or a soaking wet boy from playing with the watering cans. All good fun.
Crafting wise I needed a new folder for my trading cards...the original one is bursting...so I covered a lever arch file with stripey blue wrapping paper and then added some sparkly swirly mulberry paper decorated with peel-offs and a cuttlebug embossed butterfly, using tiny white buttons for the butterflies body and head. Therefore this folder fits with the 'swirls and flourishes' challenge from Lots to do, the 'butterflies and buttons' challenge from Pollycraft and the 'outside the box' challenge from Pile it on (I think that this is outside the box for two reasons; it isn't a card or scrapbook page but an altered item, and the butterfly is flying outside the bordered area).
I have also made this sympathy card for a friend who sadly lost her husband to cancer this last week. The card follows this weeks Friday sketchers sketch and the colourscheme of Grey, black and one other (in my case it was purple) from CCC. I hope you all have a good rest of the week.
