Rich Razzleberry Butterflies ......

 It has been another busy week and I'm afraid my blog has suffered again, there's just not enough hours in the day, even though I'm up until silly o'clock!!  I have managed to fit a little craft time in so I will share those cards with you over the next few days.

Today's cardis made using the beautiful new Rich Razzleberry colour from Stampin' Up!, I have used the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set with the co-ordinating punch, the background is stamped with white craft ink and rich razzleberry ink, the sentiment is from the Oval All stamp set with the matching punches, and the gorgeous polka dot ribbon is also rich razzleberry.

I thought I would share my inspiration for this card - LOOK what I found in my garden yesterday!!!!

Irises are one of my favourite flowers, there are so many beautiful colours and I have tried for many years to grow them but without success, or maybe it was Lucy's rabbits eating them!!!!  I was happy to find a stem of small yellow irises earlier in the week, but to find this beautiful  iris was a real joy.

Yesterday we went shopping and bought allsorts of things for the house that we probably don't need, so I will be spending today having a HUGE clearout of clutter as it is taking over, Lucy's bedroom and Philip's toys are next on my hit list!!!! There's also the weekly mountain of ironing to tackle so I better get on and make a start!!!

Hi Angela,
I love the colours on your card and those butterflies are gorgeous. What a beautiful iris - our garden is well behind this year after the harsh winter.
