Anyway, a new year and challenges all over the place. Fun, fun, fun. Cheery Lynn's weekly challenge is Friends/Friendship.
I used a sheet from Dovecraft's Eastern Promise paper and embossed it using Born to Shop Green Goddess embossing folder. Then out with the Pine Needles and Shabby Shutters Distress Inks. I wanted to use my Cheery Lynn Mini Dimensional Butterflies Die (I love this fantastic die) so I thought about friends and butterflies and came up with a phrase I liked. I didn't have an appropriate stamp or sticker so I have doodled. Then I cut lots of butterflies from an old calendar and proved my saying had a tinsy little flaw. Although I am firmly convinced you can't have too many friends I do think I maybe went a bit mad with the butterflies so I have a few left over for another project. Excellent. Also thinking about it you can have too many Cabbage White Butterflies. Especially when their little caterpillars start munching on my cabbages. Oh, sorry, got a bit distracted there. I wanted a narrow border and was a bit stuck until I found these stripy pipe-cleaners in my stash. After I had glued them down I realised I could have had a go at more doodles but I do like the extra dimension the pipe-cleaners give.
