Stampin' Up! and electric sheep!

Don't you just love butterflies?  Stampin' Up! have a super punch, the elegant butterfly.  I just wanted some plain and simple cards and these have not taken that long to make.  I've just used old olive and soft suede cardstock, running the soft suede through the vintage wallpaper and honeycomb embossing folders.  I punched out some butterflies - leaving room to then punch these out using the circle, scalloped circle and a decorative label punches.  I found it easier to do the butterflies first and then the 'outsides' (trial and error!).

The sentiments are from the curly cute stamps and the ink is the new gumball green.

I've started to read the next (not quite next but next in my scheme of things) book for the A300.  Having read a few books now for this course, I am looking at books in a different light.  Before this coruse, I would read a book, get stuck in and involved in the characters but now it's not only doing that but looking at the wider picture, the underlying story to the story itself.  So I will see what Philip K Dick has in store for me.  As you may know, the book was adapted into a film, Bladerunner. I've watched Bladerunner a few times and I love the film, I hope that I find the book as enthralling and now with a tweak of the braincells enjoy the book even more.
