Butterflies and Magnolia - ROP Challenge

**
Well Spring is definately in the air.
I didn't think we'd ever see the end of winter, and I'm
not fooled, I'm sure there's still some wind and rain left
to come, but until it arrives I'm happy to soak up the sun
of these gorgeous Spring days we've been having here
in Australia
**
My garden has brand new flower buds everywhere and
new leaves are appearing on all my deciduous trees,
there is new life appearing everywhere.

I received my new Summer Magnolia collection last week
and I was so tempted to use some of the stamps, but for
Spring I really couldn't go past Magnolia Chasing Butterflies.
She looks just like my little girl trying to catch butterflies in
our garden. And as f0r my Summer collection, if this years
summer is anything like last years, I'll have many months
to be inspired by them.

So onto this weeks challenge at Roses on Paper.
My very talented friend Susan has chosen the beautiful
colour combination of Soft Blue, Lavender and Cream.
These colours work so nicely together.
**
With the addition of Belles 'n Whistles stamps being added
to our challenge blog you have even more reason now to
play along with us.
And if that's not enough reason maybe one of the great
prizes Summer has on offer for the lucky winner will
tempt you to play along.

I had a day out last week with a family friend to
an open garden. The gardens are owned by
Dame Elisabeth Murdoch.
For my American friends, she is the mother of
media magnate, Rupert Murdoch.
Anyway, I took so many photos, with the promise of
sending copies to my friend. I didn't want to just put them
in any old envelope, so I've created this folder card to send
them in. I hope she will carry them around and show
them off proudly.
