LIM challenge this week with just one layer....inspired once more by the garden -lots of beautiful white and lavender colours at the moment which seem to be flourishing despite all the rain..helped me decide on a simple black and white theme! Been deliciously busybusy busy this past couple of weeks with the grandchildren, we've cycled, tree trekking - not me I hasten to add but I did seriously think about it but only for a second..hee hee (however my daughter and her 2 eldest Elyssa aged 10yrs and Fay age 7yrs did it and they were amazing!!) what else have we done.... painted canvases, made dens with willow in the garden, walked, shopped (few long faces but my daughter and I enjoyed it lol!!) outdoor theatre at a National Trust property, Zumba, swimming and lots more and more to come, had a few minutes to myself this afternoon so here is my quick offering for this weeks challenge..all computer generated - love playing around with these digi images and papers and these particular ones are (very) old favourites by Liz at PP I just added 3 little swarovski crystals to the three flowers a bit of glamour dust and a sentiment also by Pink Petticoat. Enjoy...

Make my Monday who are using the colour wheel's primary colours for their challenge inspiration this week and I'm back to butterflies as I have a friend who's birthday is coming up and she loves butterflies...sadly not seen many around this year with all the rain! I simply used my lovely butterfly embossing folder and an MB butterflies die cut - I think you can just make out that the lead butterfly is layered red & yellow beneath the white and I finished off with 3 blue swarovski crystals and clipped some red wire for the antennae, off to the supermarket now - a job I'm not too fond of but needs must on rare occassions, I much prefer the smaller shops and the farm shops like to think I'm helping them keep going before someone like Tesco's takes over the world........! Hope this cards brings a little bit of sunshine to one and all..................................x
