Just for the fun of it :)

I had a girlie gathering yesterday afternoon - it was bliss :) The boys went out to watch football and my friends arrived bearing gifts of pink wine and flavoured vodka and we had an afternoon of laughter, a few tears and lots of love. I love my friends so much and it was lovely to get us all together and catch up. I hope you have had some fun this weekend too :)

On Friday night hubby went out and I had a night all to myself. I haven't crafted for the sake of it for such a long time so I got out my craft stash, turned the music channel on and spent the night playing !

I started by making these little decorated jars for the dining table
I wrapped some burlap around the jars then tied a picot edge circle on with some twine. The butterflies were die cut with my Crealies die. I ran them through the paper crimper and added a button which I coloured with my pro-marker to match.

Here they are filled with tulips

I liked these so much I made a card using the same design
The DP is from the American crafts neopolitan 12x12 paper pad. I left it blank so I can stamp a sentiment inside when I need it. This way I can use it for any occasion :)

I hope you like the results of my crafty evening - I had a lot of fun just playing for fun :)
