Cuttlebug butterfly cards, etc...

This week's Noteworthy challenge over at Scrapz Biz is all about butterflies! I love butterflies and use them quite often on my projects...who could resist? For my sample cards I used the Cuttlebug Butterfly Combo Set to cut and emboss the butterflies... (I just know I'm going to get a lot of use out of this set! Love it. *grin*)

I used Basic Grey Lemonade papers and Chip Stickers, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder (on the first card) and Spellbinders Labels 1 (to get the shape of the second card).

All you have to do for this challenge is create a card with at least one butterfly on it. Stamp it, punch it... whatever you like! For more details on the challenge and how to enter click here. There are two shopping vouchers up for grabs!

I also had a go at Melleny's sketch challenge from last week...
I created the scallop frame using my Stampin' Up scallop border punch and managed to use up some old product mixed in with some new. Always feels good using up older stash!

Then I did Jen's Noteworthy challenge from last week too which was to use something recycled on a card. Ages ago I had cut out these little fabric shapes off one of Madi's shirts (which she'd destroyed by covering in permanent black pen) and thought one day I might be able to use them for something as they were so cute. This was the perfect opportunity!

The green check fabric background was also scrap material left over from another project. The colour matched really well!

On the homefront Ayden lost another tooth yesterday... another one already! Now he's got two gaping holes in his smile. LOL... Madi seems to be completely toilet trained! We're amazed at how easy it was for her... literally she was done after the first day and hasn't looked back! So it's bye bye to nappies at our place... that's gotta save us some money when we shop. Gotta love that! Riley's all excited as we'll be celebrating his birthday on the weekend and he's already snooping around the house trying to find his presents. :) He's got no chance. Hee hee hee

Before I go I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to Nic who gave me this adorable award...

How cute it that? Thanks Nic... you really are the sweetest and I truly appreciate it! *Mwah!*

Well, I hope you've all got a wonderful weekend planned! I'm off to grab a cuppa and watch The Amazing that show!

Take care,

Sheree xx
