Four Butterflies

Hello friends
Today I can share with you a little frame that I created for Spellbinders.
It has just been featured in a US magazine called Crafts n'Things and here is a link
it provides full instructions on how I put this together.
Les Papillions - I adore you!
Talking of a butterfly frame...I am running a class on 6 April where we will be making 
a larger box frame incorporating many butterflies on a special background and using 
the wonderful 8 x 8 Teresa Collins Fabrications paper pads.  
All the details can be found under my Spellbinders Academy tab in my sidebar.
I will be re-running this class again on a later date as I've had a few requests for those who cannot
make 6 April.  Details of that date coming soon.

Also, a note to those of you have asked/reserved dies - the new Spellbinders dies and 3D M-Bossabilities are now arriving, I'm updating my Amazon shop to incorporate new stock as it trickles in but, as always,
email if you would prefer to purchase direct.

Questions: yesterday's card - the pretty rose paper is Cosmo Cricket - Odds and Ends
(my all time favourite paper...I have tiny bit left!)
The die used for the outer frame is A2 Fancy Weave - one of the Card Creator dies.

Shop sign news: we are one step further - hurrah!
The weatherproof vinyl lettering going on...this actually turned out to be a four man job -
Mitchell, Mum, Dad and I!   We must have measured it a zillion times to calculate the spacing etc.
Hoping tomorrow it will go up outside and then that will be the last finishing touch.
Definitely time for a special photo to share.

Have a lovely Sunday everyone.
Take care.

I see your delightful daisies 3D-mbossibility card you featured on your blog on 24 February on the inside front cover of this months Simply Cards and Papercraft mag. It looks very impressive, you must be very proud.
Will have a look at your shop later.

Hi Christine.
love the frame so pretty, also love the card.
It's so lovely to see your son helping out with your sign, it's so nice when ALL of the family are behind you & supporting you in your new venture.

Good Sunday Morning Christine,
That paper collection is my favourite too! I have a little bit left and I hope it's still available to buy!
Such exciting news about the shop sign, the finishing touch, you should unveil it with a glass of something sparkling in your hand!
You must be thrilled with what you have achieved, and the fact that you have done it all by yourselves just adds
to the achievement, you have a fabulous family around you Christine and it has been such a pleasure watching you all pull together to realise your dream!
I hope you will take your workshops on the road as I would love more than anything to attend one.
Love and hugs,
Sandra Riley xx

Another late post Christine but I couldn't miss commenting on today's lovely project. I've got both of thes punches so would love to have a play. It's not too clear from the photo but can I ask, has the glass been taken away from the frame in order to let the butterfly wings stand proud?It looks as though it might have been. Think this might be another for the 'to do' list.
