First the 'Butterfly Words' ATC collection:
This collection is so called because of the butterfly made of words stamp used on two of the cards. The background images are from FrouFrou and were perfect bases for a feminine ATC collection. Then the butterflies were stamped using sizzix butterfly stamps, and the sentiment added according to the base.
This collection was inspired by several challenges - the main five being:
Simply Less is Moore OLC Add an animal.
CASology 138 Blossom
CCM #134 For a special Woman
Art Impressions #155 Vintage Vibe
Live and Love Crafts #33 Photo Inspiration (pink blossoms)

Finally a book review - Blood Sport by Dick Francis
Gene Hawkins is about to start his holiday when he gets an invite out by his boss, which means that something is amiss. Gene is asked to investigate a stolen horse, the second from the same owner, that the authorities can find no clue about. Initially Gene does not want to take the assignment however, when somebody tries to kill the man in question he changes his mind. If anybody can find the horses it is Gene.
This is a fast paced story with a good storyline. The characters are very strong and work well together making for a very interesting read. I would definitely recommend this book if you are looking for a non-murder, crime story.
Thank you for looking
