Another Whiff of Joy Summer Kit card - and a combo too

woj-summer-fri-sk-lotv-suk1 Here's another sweetie from the Whiff of Joy Summer kit - all you lucky ladies that managed to order it will just love working with these cuties, I know I do! I've followed three challenges with this card - Friday Sketchers has a fabulous sketch this week (will def use this one again), Lily of the Valley is to use Blue, pink and green (and these delish Papermania papers are just the ticket lol) and Sukkersott is to feature something from the animal kingdom - I hope the butterfly that I crocheted is okay for this.

A close up of the butterfly - this is even easier and quicker to crochet than the flowers are - watch out for lots of these on my cards till I sicken myself!! (Edited to add (cos I forgot about it when I was doing this post doh!) - the link to the free pattern is in my side bar).

Another simple inside, I was going to stamp some butterflies from the Whiff of Joy Spring kit but forgot all about it till I was resizing the photo's so it's stopping just as it is!!
