Ok so day one at work - DONE! Even had a little energy to craft afterwards so a couple of shares for you.
First up is to enter a new challenge 'Butterfly Challenge' run by the lovely Mrs A who is a regular and talented contestant over at Pixies Crafty Snippet playground. In fact it was when I posted my entry at the Playground yesterday that I noticed a new competition on the 'Blog' and having included snippety bits I'm going to enter the card here too.
So the very first Butterfly Challenge - and (surprisingly) a 'butterfly and flowers' requirement! I've a couple of commissions for Mother's Day cards at the moment so what better theme for a girlie occasion and if you want to play along you'll have to be quick as the competition closes tomorrow!

Sentiment: Clearly Besotted - Happy Days
Papers: Snippets of designer card as the background which was a gift from my Crafty American Auntie
Tools: MFT Die-namics chevron dies
From my Stash: twine, gems and pearls
My next card is for the CAS(E) This Sketch and CAS Colours & Sketches Challenges and this time I couldn't I've used a newly released set from Uniko Studio (A Gift For You). The present, bows, sentiment and sequins are all from this set. The sentiment and sequins are heat embossed onto vellum and I've used a retro circles embossing folder for the bottom half of the card plus a couple of gems and enamel dots from my stash to jazz it up a bit.
And that's all for me today so I'm just going to have a little surf around your blogs and add some comments as I've not been too good at that recently.
