Handmade Gifts Butterfly Hanging

In February Michelle from Inspiration Blooms put out a challenge for handmade gifts. I took part and I think my gifts have all been received so I can finally show you what I made. I am very pleased with these wall hangings. I only had 4 players willing to participate so I only have 4 to show. I made these wall hangings using a chipboard base and 3 different stamps.... the butterfly is from Stamp Zia, the single bloom is from $bin at Michaels and Inkadinkado made the flourish of flowers. I embossed all images with Gold detail embossing powder and then painted with Twinkling H2Os. The sentiment is from Scrappin Cat. I hope you like these.

I punched a hole at the top with my Crop-a-dil and then using ribbons, Prismas and beads created the hanger.

I had a lovely time making these and I do hope they are enjoyed by the recipients. I am thinking of making something similar as Christmas gifts so you may see more.
Have a wonderful day. Its laundry day in the house...everybody decides to do laundry Sunday night and low and behold, Monday morning see me doing the majority of the laundry. I do so hate folding laundry. Gotta love your children but my land they can dirty a lot of clothes! I know they each use at least 3 towels per shower and at least that many facecloths. I counted today....23 towels and 19 facecloths from 3 teens! Where did I go wrong!!!
Till later
