I'm back in Craft Land!

Hello again my friends - I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. I certainly did, lots of fun with the family, and no crafting done at all: I've just realised that my most recent non-scheduled craft post was almost 3 weeks ago! However I'm back again in the driving seat - or should that be crafting seat. And as Santa brought me a lovely new craft storage unit, lots more Promarkers and my first ever Brushos, and I also won several crafting goodies from magazines and blogs over the last few weeks, I have lots and LOTS to play with.

But first of all, a quick and simple make to ease me back into the swing of things. My new storage system gives me easy access to my snippets box, which means I can see at a glance just how many there are! I'm going to have to be much more disciplined now about cutting into a new sheet of card instead of taking the time to see if I have a suitable piece in the box. A quick rummage this morning produced several scraps in various yellow and green shades - just the colours you would expect to see in a courgette/zucchini, so I've made a card for the Butterfly Challenge where that is one of the options (the other is Zero, but I don't think I have any Big Birthdays to make for at the moment)

The butterflies are a Memory Box die that I won from Liz at Crafty Sunflower and the stamped sentiment is that wonderful magazine freebie that appears on my work time and time again.

I'm also popping over to the Snippets Playground with this - do pop over and check it out as there is a mega-giveaway going on this time!
