Apple Picking

Evening all, I hope you are all well and enjoying a good week.
I am still managing to keep up with some craft now that I am back to work but am finding it difficult, with the family keep wanting my time every evening. I promise myself that I'm going to spend an hour or so in my shed and then as soon as I come home one or the other of them wants me to 'just pop here or there' with them!! Just how does everyone else manage to make time??? I think my family must just be very needy!!
This card I just finished off is using a cute little image from Elisabeth Bell. I coloured her with my Promarkers and have layered her with papers from another of my new packs by Forever in Time-this one's called Frolic.
I've added some faux stitches around the edges and coloured some paper flowers to match. The butterfly is cut using a large Xcut punch and I've finished off with some sequins and pearls-I hope you like her:

I would like to enter her into the following challenges:

Whoopsi Daisy challenge - throw on the flowers
Love to Create challenge - # 132 -  flowers and stitching
Catch the Bug September challenge - anything goes
Treasured Times challenge # 24 - anything goes
Crafting from the Heart challenge # 35 - anything goes

Well thank you for stopping by today and for any comments you may wish to leave. Have a lovely week and until next time.
