how many is too many...

Good morning everyone, ok now whats up with the weather, seriously would it really destroy the great scheme if we were to have just a little bit of sun...when I met my Dad yesterday every single time we went to get out the car it tiddled down...my Dad reckoned it was just waiting for us lol...well his colour choice of ipod is out of stock but will be back in within five days and hes busy sorting out all his cd's for loading, I have a feeling I'm going to be busy lol...my card for today is for our new challenge over at Just Magnolia & hAnglar and sTanglar challenge which this week is the fab Pop's choice and she chose the perfect challenge, Butterflies,,,now for those of you who don't know I love using butterflies, but just how many is too many I ask myself?...the gorgeous Tilda is from the Butterfly dreams collection and called Beautiful Tilda isn't she so pretty, I love that little ruffled skirt and her gorgeous wings...I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with these lush papers from the BoBunny 6x6 Gabrielle paper pad, perfect for this challenge and I love the colours in this pad, the Tilda and pad are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, I finished my card with these gorgeously glitzy butterflies from Anita's...the lush sketch is from the Stamp with Fun challenge...I wrapped myself up in my fluffy dressing gown with a hot water bottle last night and did loads of blog hopping and even managed to leave some comments and catch up with some challenge commenting too, aren't I a good girl lol...I'm hopefully going to do loads more today too so will catch up with everyone else today too, thank you all so much for the wonderful comments you left about the house photos, I'm so pleased you saw the potential that we did...I hope you all have a fabulous Friday whatever your up and if you have time don't forget to pop on over to Just Magnolia to see what the rest of our amazing DT came up with

This is such a gorgeous card, I LOVE it!!! I must have missed something with the farmhouse.........you bought it to move there after it is renovated or is it an investment?? Well if it will be done in the same style as your cards it will be absolutely gorgeous so I look forward to many pictures in the "before and after" style!!!
