Friends Are The Best

Hello friends x I hope you are all well and enjoying the lovely weather if you live in the UK x We have some rain here today but it's badly needed and we are advised the sunshine will return x

Today I am sharing a card made for a friend whom I have known since we were children x I used circle dies for the easel card and a Tim Holtz embossing folder on the die cut circular frame. Also used were Tim's Butterfly punch and a thinlits die for the word friends and of course those amazing paper dolls, which we all love x Some die cut ivy was then placed behind the girls and some pearls added to the butterflies. 

Over at the Frilly and Funkie challenge Blogspot the challenge is "B" Happy.  My project features butterflies that are prominent on my  miniature card. To view the F&F challenge click HERE
Over at That's Crafty the challenge is Close to Nature and I am sharing this project as it has beautiful butterflies that we all love and some green ivy.  My friend lives on a farm and as children we were always exploring the fields and playing outdoors.

At Country View Crafts the challenge is Summer Garden, which you can find by clicking HERE The children are together in the garden with ivy behind them and the butterflies are flying above.

Moo Mania have a Butterfly challenge so I just had to link up with them too. You can view the challenge by clicking HERE

Sending huge hugs to you and a big "Thank You' for visiting xx
