2 x Three!

I hope you are starting to get to grips with this new year - I must admit its proving a struggle to get back to a normal routine.  Plus the Bad Fairy of Procrastination has taken up residence (again), which is never a good thing.  Such a little minx, she is!
I'm blaming her for my bad start to the day too.  I'd noticed the plants on the landing were looking a bit sad and was watering them when one jumped off the table and upended itself throwing compost all over the carpet.  It must have been her, and it was mean to do that before I'd even had my breakfast.

Anyway, I did manage a bit of crafting yesterday and made a couple of cards using the new LO from The Sketch File.  I'm sharing the first of them today

Papers: Glistening 6x6 pad (Authentique) 
Dies: Layering Butterflies set (Tonic)
Butterfly bodies from Butterfly Trio (Memory Box)
Square Punch (XCut)
Tiny turquoise gems
The Layering Butterflies Die set is one of those that Father Christmas was kind enough to bring.  I've used the smallest butterfly of each shape here.  In this set you get 4 increasingly larger dies for each of the two shapes, so I need to experiment in using them in a layered up way another time.
These papers are some of my favourites.  I have the 12x12 set too ;)
That's all for now, except to say how good it would be to have you join in and give this LO a try.  I'd love to see what you could use it for.

Thank you so much for visiting, I hope you'll leave a message before you go :)
