*********************************A new Years Resolution

I'm not one for making new years resolutions but this one is very enjoyable, I'm going to try and take part in every polkadoodles challenge if I can.
Thanks a lot Nicky for the blinkies, as you can see I'm very proud of them.
So here is my entry for week 1

Base Card from Craft Creations, blue paper from Wild Rose Studio,  butterfly drawn and cut in Pazzles from DCWV, Cafe Mediteranian, gems from my box. I used MS punch, Nesties deckle edge squares for computer generated sentiment. I used my new embossing folder from Craft Concepts and stickles to finish.

Hi Claire

A lovely make. The embossing makes a great background for your gorgeous butterfly.

I am hearing Pazzles mentioned quite a bit recently.

Beautiful colours.

Love Jules xx

p.s. The olive oil sounds as bad as my scramble egg LOL!!!
