February already...

February is our busiest month of the year. Oscar has his 6th birthday on the 12th, it's our 11th Anniversary on the 15th, and Lara turns 9 on the 23rd. However, since I am the new queen of leisure, I should be able to have it all under control this year.


I've been making cards for challenges again. I hear you say (all two of you who read this blog!).

This first one is for the Daring Cardmakers challenge of making a Red and White card. It also fits with the Caardvarks challenge of making a "Valentine" themed card. Two for one!! I love a bargain. LOL



This next one is definately for the Caardvarks Valentine challenge. I am actually quite "Valentine-challenged" since we don't tend to celebrate Valentine's Day here in Australia. There are heaps of red roses around, and young lovers give cards, but most hardened Aussies just see it as a marketing spin. Bitter and cynical aren't we? Anyway, here it is:
The beautiful filigree butterfly is a laser cut chipboard shape from Remember When Paper Company.

Great red and white card, and the colours on the teal one are stunning. Love the butterfly too. How did you do that?
