Hi all,
I know I have been missing on my blog lately,
all I can do is apologise, Sorry, Sorry, Sorry.
I haven't had much of a chance to craft lately
what with illness attacking me & mine,
(one gets sick, one gets better, another gets sick & passes it back,
round & round the bugs have gone in our house of late)
& I have also had a busy diary with social things going on,
(birthday parties, rugby club outings {GO APE near Leeds castle}fab day
& end of year barbeque's) & works been busy,
not to mention blogger going crazy.
I missed entering any challenges last week :-c,
so I got up early this morning (before any one else was up)
to make this quick tag & I am blogging it at work (naughty, naughty)
Simon says stamp and show blog
the theme this week is OLD WIVES'S TALE
& studio L3 blog the theme this week is
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Color Blocking
click on there names to read all about the challenges.

Here is said tag,

I have three old wives tales about butterflies for you,

Three butterflies seen together means good luck.

If the first butterfly you see in the year is white,
you will have good luck all year.

The soul of your departed love ones,
visit you in the form of a butterfly.

I have used,
movers & shapers Tag & Bookplate Die,
Distress Ink
(bundled sage, tea dye, tattered rose, wild honey & vintage photo)
butterflies are cut from Graphic 45 paper,
these stamp sets,
Coffee archival ink,
green garden twine & butterfly charm from my stash.

here's my Ink Color Blocking background,
this was a Fab quick & easy technique,

Hope you like it!

I know I have over 100 followers,
thank you all so much,
I have ordered some things on the net yesterday
to do a blog candy,
as soon as they arrive I will
put them with the stuff I have all ready sorted out
& do a post for how you can win it,
thank you for your patients
I do have it in hand(lol).

Back soon,
