Pretty Flutterbys!

Wow what a day I have had! With both kids being off school and nursery and Daddy also being home for a long weekend we have had such a lazy day! The kids have been playing out in the garden this morning then with their toys this afternoon! So I set to having a play, I had seen a style of card I quite liked the look of on a couple of blogs, and I wanted to try and do this myself. After 2 hours and a hand covered in glitter paint I think I have cracked it!

Please wear your sunglasses before you go any further as the pictures are very bright!
