Good morning everyone!

What a stunning morning it is over here in Dubai - its 9.30am and already 30 degrees....summer's coming...!!!

I have made yet another butterfly card...why I hear you ask. Well, butterflies always make me smile as when my daughter was little she could never say butterflies, she would always say flutterbies...hence why my blog is called Fluttabyz...everytime I see one it reminds me of my little baby girl.

I have sooooo many of these dew drop thingies in my craft room, that I was getting a bit bored looking at them, so thought I would do something different with them. I found a pic I liked of a butterfly and then started copying it on the card. Now, I am thinking I should have done a sketch line before I started sticking the drops down as I was going freehand and it looks a bit wobbly to me - but hey, its a learning curve!!

Recipe: white card, white & pink dew drops, ribbon from stash, sentiment from DCWV

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

  1. Cupcake challenge #86 - Childhood memories - 'flutterbies' one of my daughters earliest words.
  2. Flutter by Wednesday #104 - Sparkle - sparkle on my sentiment & dew drops.
  3. Pixie Dust Challenge 17 - Things with wings - my beautiful butterfly has wings!
  4. SSDS #35 - Birthdays - this is for my cousin's birthday!
  5. Our Creative Corner - Bows - done!
  6. Magical Crafts #12 - Animals - yep, done!
  7. Meljens Designs #2 - Girlie colours - pink, purple & white!

Thanks for stopping by - have a great day!
