Lazy bones sleeping in the sun

I don't know about you but after being off work for a bit I just can't seem to get back into the swing of things. I have been off work for nearly two weeks and of course my little one is on Easter break. So it has been lazy days mixed with rambles, bike rides and off on adventures. I don't know how I will survive having to go back to work tomorrow (sniff).

These little tags were made as part of the mad evening of challenges we just had over at the in love with stamping forum. I was part host and challenge setter for the evening. It was such fun, my challenge was punch art. I challenged all the ladies to come up with some sort of new and wonderful creature or creations with their punched out or die cut bits and bobs. I made these butterflies for inspiration for the challengees. They are actually hearts punched out from stamped card stock with a hand held punch and laid top to tail with some paper twine wrapped around the middle.

Hope you like them (sorry the pics are not beautified - completely run out of time). Have a great day & see you soon xx

How cute are these tags? So clever to use a heart punch to put the butterflies together! Btw, I've just announced my blog candy winner - maybe the name has a familiar ring to you ;-)
