Tag You're it Challenge #5 - Butterfly kisses

Here is my entry for this week's Tag you're It challenge where the theme is butterfly kisses. I have used a Hero digi stamp for the butterflies, coloured with promarkers. The background was made with  Distress inks on crumpled wet paper, over-stamped with Graphicus oriental grasses(one of my birthday presents) and a crafty individuals fern stamp. As well as being the theme on Tag you're it, Butterflies are the theme on this week's Alphabet Challenge Blog (Thanks for the Nudge, Lesley) So I'm entering it there too.
I bet you are thinking 'what is she doing posting on a Thursday morning when she should be at work?'  Well, as well as having Monday off for May day, School is a polling station, so I've got today off too! I would love a three day week every week!!! Now I can't say I've got a lot to show for it though. I'm surrounded by lovely stash and I don't know where to start! I've not been totally idle. There is a carrot cake in the oven, which was requested by my boss when I asked 'what sort of cake shall I make?' I'll post a picture to make you all hungry! Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy your day!
