Butterfly Flutterby’s

Sometimes I really wish that I was a Butterfly. They have simple if not extremely short little lives. Whenever I see one, I am amazed by their beauty and fragility.

I decided to try out an Easel Card. There’s a great tutorial by Melanie on the ILWS website. It only uses a tiny piece of card and folds down so well that you can send it flat and without the extra postage charges.

I do love wire and once I’d bought this punch (which has a beautiful Stampin’Up!  stamp set that matches), I knew I had to attach them so they could ‘fly‘!

I’ll try and get an inferior version of Melanie’s tutorial up on this blog, as I’m sure that you’d all like to see. I suspect this one just might be coming out at workshops– SO- If you fancy doing something similar, give me a call and book a party as its starting to get busy towards Christmas!

I have 5 ‘butterflies’ at home right now. Well, butterflies is a little exaggeration- maybe herd of elephants is more like it- but they are flying around the house and into each other! These little people all need feeding-so I’d better go and rustle up some flies or bugs, or maybe just a nice sandwich. I’ll flutter off, dreaming of soaring over somewhere beautiful; maybe I should soar over my ironing board and actually reduce the size of the clothing mountain next to it!!!

Happy creating, xxxxblogpics21 003
