Butterfly Wishes

I wonder if we might get through today without any rain? Hmmm...fingers crossed it does stay dry and that we get a nice warm sunny evening for Sophie's leavers BBQ at school! I think we are all fed up with the weather now...who would have thought it was mid July!

Anyhoo, onto my card which I've made for Sophie's teacher...well, Mrs Clark actually left a few weeks ago on maternity leave but she's coming into school on Friday to attend the leavers assembly and Sophie wanted to get her a special present and card. I was blog hopping recently and found this gorgeous freebie butterfly digi and instantly knew I wanted to make a card with it...I printed it onto matching DP's and felt really brave using black card for the matting....this card is really sparkly IRL as I added lots of stickles but once again the camera hasn't picked the sparkle up...stoopid camera!

Hi Donna, Gorgeous card! I love the colour combo and the sentiment is perfect for this beautiful butterfly image.

I am also keeping my fingers crossed it stays dry because it's Jamie's leavers service and BBQ today. It doesn't look promising at the moment :-(
