Summer Days!




We are having beautiful weather here in the UK at the moment and  I have noticed quite a few butterflies in my garden, so I have been inspired to pull out my Antique Engraving set again and make this card with paper pieced butterflies.  Here is a closeup of them attached by just the middle so I could lift the wings for more dimension.

















At last I have found time for a little creating, life is so busy at work at the moment that crafting has taken a back seat, still School breaks for the summer in just over a week and I can't wait!!
