What season are you in?


"What season are you in?" is the theme at Crafters Café Challenge Blog.  Come on over and have some fun - http://crafterscafeblogchallenge

In New Zealand, we are enjoying autumn.  We have had a super-hot summer and are just a little bit relieved that it's cooler now... so while the leaves are turning and the butterflies are flittering, we are still sitting out in the sun enjoying a cool drink like this wonderful Lemonade Cat from our sponsor Eureka. 
I think this would be great for a man - they seem to look like this more than I do!

Some of my favourite things in cardmaking are using my cuttlebug for embossing and diecutting, colouring, butterflies and just adding a bit of sparkle.
