Birds, Butterflies and Cows........

Hi everyone.....Hope you've all had a great weekend, and the weather has been kind to you. It certainly wasn't the washout that we'd been led to believe.
Because it was so nice yesterday, Alan and I had a little run-out in my new car, and actually had the top down....I felt like a celebrity haha. I'll show you a pic at the end of this post.
I've made some 'batch' cards over the past 2 days, for a customer. I never do 2 cards the same, so it was strange making 6 of each one.....but what the customer wants, the customer gets! 

The birds were all different colours with matching feathers.....I also varied the sentiment and placement of the branch and leaves.
The cow cards were done as 3 birthday and 3 new home.
The butterflies were all cut with different papers, and I used different dies on 2 of them.
All were made with 'linen' effect base-card, as I have absolutely loads of this. I always seem to use 'hammered' card so thought I'd have a change.

Anyway, below is a pic of my new car.....well, not new, of course, but different. 
It's our Summer toy!

Would love to hear your comments about the cards, hope you've enjoyed looking at my blog,
catch you all tomorrow xx
