Fluttery Butterflies for Less is More!

 zoe tant stampin' up! demonstrator


Happy Saturday everyone.  I'm glad it's sunny, but missing my little 'big' girl who is away on a school trip in France.  They left at the ungodly hour of midnight Thursday and are scheduled back on Monday evening.  Although we have our moments, teenager looming, I miss her dearly and can't wait to hear all about her trip.  In the meantime Charlie keeps us busy and was thrilled this morning when he called on our neighbour, Aunty Dawn, to see if she'd been able to get any of the free lego models that were accompanying one of the newspapers this week.  She'd done really well and for £1.30 I now have an entertained son!  We live at least 20 miles from the nearest WHSmiths or Toys R Us and so it's not worth the drive to get the paper, but Aunty Dawn goes to work near the right store! 
With the children busy, I've jumped into my craft room to make my card for the Less is More challenge.  Chrissie and Mandi have left us with a wide open choice today as the title is simply Butterflies which I think most of us can deal with somehow.  I've chosen to use Strength and Hope again to remind you all that if you buy this set from any demonstrator you will be doing your bit for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  For each set sold Stampin' Up! will donate £1 to the charity.  So contact your demo and not only will you end up with a fabulous stamp set you'll also be doing something good and let's face us I don't there can be many of us who don't know someone who's been affected by this cancer. 
Whatever you do this weekend have fun!
Hugs Zx

  1. This is so gorgeous. The little details - the baja on the edges of the scalloped circle to make it pop, the flower with only one of the gems - are perfect!
