Proud Mum!

Not one for normally blogging daily but just wanted to shout from the rooftops how proud I am of my youngest daughter Tasha.  Its been a couple of tough years with her health and well being and without going into the ins and outs of it all finally after everything she as been through today marks the start of a new beginning for her has she enrolled in College today!  Might seem rather trivial to most as this is the normal progression for most her age, but to me its a MASSIVE achievement for her and I could not be more proud of come next Monday she starts on the career path that she wants and will start her Animal Care course and I wish her all the happiness and best of luck that she truly deserves.  Feel like the Cheshire Cat today I am that happy!!
Gushing over.... here is a card I made to order that I am going to enter into a couple of challenges....I loved making this as Butterflys are sooooo pretty they remind me of summertime & warm sunny days and are just so beautiful to look at

I picked up the butterfly sheet from a recent craft fair I went to - I think it is from a company called Crafty Touch - I loved the image as I got to BLING it to my hearts content !!
The Butterfly die is from Joy Crafts
Background card is from HunkyDory 
Made a matching box to go with it - Butterfly punch from Tonic and the die cut is a Spellbinders favourite of mine called Fleur De Lis Rectangles

Am entering this into:
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
A Gem of a Challenge - Summertime
Craft Challenge  - Animal/Pet

Anyhow am off to take the family out for a meal tonight as a little celebration of Tashas happy crafting to you all
