Jones crafts & Graphic 45

Hello and a warm welcome to my blog, this evening I'm sharing a 8x8 card and mini gift bag made for my DT over at Jones crafts. They distribute my favourite craft brand graphic 45 in the UK along with other well known brands. 
I have used the new fabulous children's hour collection... I decided to make a card a gift bag just to prove that this calendar collection is very versatile. 

I fussy cut lots of butterflies and also punched some tiny ones using the papers. I have added wink of Stella but it's hard to see on the photos. 
Hope you like it, I'm off to a workshop tomorrow at my lovely local craft shop the fabulous owner Sue has organised Fran Westmoreland, who is a wonderful mixed media artist working for Prima to come along and teach us how to get messy with a canvas. What's everyone else up to ? Whatever it is have fun? 
Take care & don't forget I have wonderful candy up for grabs but I just dont seem to be able to get to 75 followers so please spread the word.
Big hugs Elaine xx
