Butterfly dreams

Hi there!

So great to back in blog land! Wow I missed my craft room... but really had a great time visiting family and friends in South-Africa!

Still trying to get back the creativity... so here's my first try in more than a month, think I got a bit rusty ;)
I got myself this new butterfly die with 4 different embossing options and gave it a quick try... just love it!
