Daisy daisy Brown Butterflies

Thank you for popping in today 

on hopefully where you are a sunny day like it is here. 

I had to take Den's boots to him today - he put the wrong boots on - so drove into 
Arlington and had to walk up to where he was. 

Boy what a hill...made me puff... but I think it did me good, also it has 
added to my steps for today and my floors. 

Will show some of the photos I took at the end of my blog. 

But first here is my snippet card for today

I have used something that I have not used before 

Tonic Daisy die and stencil which has been in my stash for agessssssss !!!

So without further a do .....

Die cut out the main section but saved all the wee bits too, from a 
shaving foam paper from my stash.

Mounted the main section onto black snippet card cut from a piece of 
black card. Mounted onto white and yellow snippets. 

Then added the wee flowers and dots from the bits filling in the centers of some 
of the flowers, and added nuvo drops too. 

added butterflies. 

I have used up 4 different bits of paper / card stock out of my stash for this 
Mounted onto a Craft work Cards card blank. 

I hope you like it and would like to enter it for the following 
I hope the the colour is suitable for the challenge using the colour Umber


Here are a few photos of  Arlington Court in the woods 

Part of the hill I had to walk up !!!!!!

My favorite Oak Tree....

Thought about getting out my sewing machine....then wondered what to make !!!

Not got on very far. 

Anyway best get on Cauliflower Cheese for tonights meal with 
cold meats.
