Cherish Every Moment

I've been off work this week, as it's half term, and I've actually managed to get quite a lot of crafting done. Back at work tomorrow so I made the most of it today and got out the melt pot!

I made the flower with die-cut paper scraps, that I sprinkled with mica and then dipped in the melt pot. I made the butterfly in a mold, using the leftover UTEE.  The text background at the top, and the woman are old Non-Sequitur stamps and I cut her out and coloured her with Promarkers.

I'm quite pleased with my flower!
