A Butterfly

Happy Monday to all! Before I show you my card for today I wanted to share with you some pics of how we celebrate the Holy Week here in Malta.. just quick ones .. promise.. not to bore you ;)

Well these ones here are pics of Good Friday processions which are held in various towns here in Malta.

This is the Figolla - a Maltese Traditional Sweet which is EATEN after being blessed on Easter Sunday.... Unfortunately this is not a pic of a figolla I made ... 'cos since I started making cards I just stopped making them!!!!

And this is a pic of another Maltese traditional celebration of the Christ has Risen procession on Easter Sunday. A different one than the Good Friday where now the carriers of the statue run with it through the streets.

Go here to watch the video if you like.

Hope you enjoyed those pics from Malta !!

And now for my card ....

Ha ha ... what a contrast :) !!! I've had Bertie Butterfly for quite some time now but only just used it now. I used this gorgeous sketch here for my card and the image I coloured it with my Promarkers.

Now for the challenges.....
1 - Truly Scrumptious Challenge No 29 - The sketch and an optional theme FLY AWAY.

2 - Crafts and Me Challenges.... Challenge No 1 !!!! - Yes that's right it's the first challenge here and the theme is FAIRIES OR WINGS...

3 - Prairie Fairy Fridays - The Challenge for Week 13 is TEXTURE ... I did some embossing.

4 - Crafty Calendar Challenge No 7 - The theme for this month is APRIL FOOLS and could be funny or just something fun and cheerful with an optional extra of embossing.

That's it for today, 'cos my son has been nagging me for quite some time to use the computer... should get another one !!!

Thanks for visiting today. Hope you had a good Easter.
