I can't believe that there's only another week to go and January will be over - this year seems to be flying by quicker than ever and I'm getting nothing done !!
I did make a promise to myself at the start of the year to motivate myself to regularly join in a few challenges and one of those was Mrs A's butterfly challenge. I managed to catch a flutterby that was hovering on the table but I had to search through all the boxes in my cupboard to find the required brad (now added to my shopping list) then after a day trying to come up with a card design I spotted the super little boxes Mrs A had posted on her blog (thanks for the inspiration). I made a lot of these little boxes the other year for charity fundraising and apparently they all sold quickly so now I'm making some more.
For this I used a 6 inch paper from my collection of loose sheets (not sure who by) and a white piece for the box base. Then I decorated with pearls, flowers with a pearl brad centre, ribbon and a Hunkydory butterfly.
I shall enter this in the following challenges
Butterfly challenge 'butterflies + B is for brads'
Curtain Call challenge 'soft scarf - photo inspiration'
Buckwell's Crafty challenge 'anything goes'
Creative Inspirations challenge 'pretty pearls' my 2nd entry
Thanks for popping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.
