Imagine my last post was 20 days ago...tut tut....sorry folks.
I'm having a lot of writing to do at the moment so blogging will have to take a back seat for a wee while. Hope you are all well and enjoying playing with the toys you received over the Christmas period.
Until I resurface from head down and inkstained fingers, take care.

Yet More Butterflies

I have a stamping friend who lives in Japan and she has 'doctored' my photo of the butterlies to make them look better.....thank you Jam.......I regret my photo is not quite in focus but you all know I am both camera and computer challenged however she had brought out the colours very well and I just thought I'd show you them! Have to give praise where it is due!


I am trying to emulate Jennifer McGuire's stunning butterflies on her website but I'm sort of failing to come up with the vibrancy. I was photographing (poorly) my efforts today and thought I'd show you....if the glitz wasn't there they would be even more dull - I think they fall short of her examples but I had fun playing.
Are you all recovered from the festivities? This is probably the last official holiday until Easter around here - not that that matters to retirees like ourselves! We have a perpetual much so that weekends don't have the same meaning any more. Indeed if we are going away for the day we choose a weekday when things are relatively quiet during school term.....hope it won't be too long before we can pack the car and head off to explore new places and re-acquaint ourselves with favourite haunts.
Wishing you all the happiest of years ahead.
