SUNFLOWERS AND BUTTERFLIES

OMG!  What has happened to the British Climate?  I know everybody's probably sick of talking about it, but it's beyond a joke now.  We had 2 hours sunshine on Sunday, so I got my lawn mowed and did some deadheading and that's been it for over a month.  It's so overcast, cold and windy, I actually resorted to putting the heating on for a bit yesterday.

Anyway, onwards and upwards!  This week is challenge #175 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS and our theme is a photo inspiration..blues, yellows and butterflies.  The sponsor is POLKA DOODLES and there's a terrific CD as the prize.  I chose to use one of my new paper pads from Prima, the Sun Kiss collection.


My stamp (rubber) is Sugar Nellie's 'Country Garden'. I've had it for around 4 years so thought it was about time she got an airing.  She is backed onto a Spellbinders die cut, the border and butterflies are Cheery Lynn dies and the leaf flourish is a Marianne.   Oh yeah, the die I was looking for last week....is now sitting in my ever growing die collection. *big grin*
