Missing in Action?

Hello there – remember me? Sorry I have been somewhat missing in action. I have been searching for my mojo – it seems to have gone walk about!

In less than 3 weeks two friends of mine will be married. I made their wedding invites as their wedding present and this week I have been making the menu covers and the orders of service. So I made these, and then quite a few more like them. What is the collective noun for butterflies?
I quite like the idea of a flutter of butterflies’ but Wikipedia offers some alternatives – a rabble, a swarm, a flight, a rainbow or a kaleidoscope. I think these would be a rabble since the pieces of paper were not that well behaved!

While I enjoyed making these I did not get a creative buzz from them, so I set myself a challenge. One Stamp, one basic layout, two 6x6 pieces of patterned paper that you don’t love yet and white cards bases to make four cards that are as different as possible.

Here is what I came up with.



Thanks for looking

Glad you got your mojo back, :) I like the sound of flutterbies best - sounds delicate. ;) :)

Your cards are stunning and you have coloured them in beautifully. ;) :)

Thank you Debbie :-)

I think we have a decision about what we should call a group of butterflies ;-)
