OK, I Know It's Been Awhile.....

Chloe has been giving me heaps about not updating my blog & I have been meaning to but just haven't found the time lately.
This time of year gets busy for us all & our son has been doing his TEE exams & there have been lots of functions & events with it being his final year of school.
So I do apologise for my lack of keeping my blog up to date & hope you all understand.

Anyhow, Chloe & the grandkids came over to visit today & Clo & I sat at the table & crafted together for the first time in ages. It was so much fun. The girls played happily all day & Oliver got passed around for lots of cuddles with everyone. He is so adorable & has the cutest little smile.
It was a pretty perfect day I must say :)

This is the card that I made today. It's for the Lime Tart challenge which was to use black & white with one other colour.
I used my Cuttlebug butterfly die for the first time which I love.
I've also used October Afternoon papers & a Collections transparency.

I've been working on lots of Christmas cards too so will try to pop back tomorrow to show you.
Take care & thanks for stopping by:)

That's such a pretty card Jewls..I just love the yellow butterfly. :) It is hard to remember to blog sometimes isn't it..I just forget at times, or wonder why I am blogging, but I do love looking at other people's blogs for yours! ;)
