Good afternoon peeps - I hope you are all well and that the weather isn't too bad where you are.  This fortnight the challenge over at One Stitch at a Time is 'Anything Goes .. with a Butterfly'!   Some might think 'simple' but, believe you me, nothing is ever simple on Planet Susie!  You see I chose my image from our sponsors WITHOUT thinking of the 'with a Butterfly' bit.   A few days later the hubster saw it and asked me what I was going to do, so I gave him the title of the theme and he started chuckling - I hadn't a clue what he was finding so funny ........... until he said "Well, owls are night birds and most butterflies are day time insects so this is going to be good!"   Not to be phased I decided to use Magical Poetic Licence!  Hence the following!!


7" x 7" White card blank - Anna Marie Designs
Digi Image - 'Owl' by Sentimental Susan at Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet
Dotty Paper - 'Promises' paper pad from LOTV Nitwit Collection
Trellis Square die - Tonic Dies
Oval die - Die-namics Pierced Oval Stax Dies
Little Leaf die - Spellbinders Little Leaf Die Set
Sm Butterfly die - Spellbinders Jewel Flowers Flourishes Dies
Butterfly die - Elizabeth Craft Designs
Lace Corner die - Cheery Lynn Corner Deco 'A' Die
Small Heart die - Cheery Lynn Two of Hearts Die
Sentiment - LOTV Clear Stamp

I hope you can enter our challenge - butterflies are such a popular embellishment that I am sure you have some of them in your stash!!!  You have two weeks' from today to enter, this is the prize for our challenge - 

As I have had loads of trouble trying to get into my blog today I am keeping this post relatively short.

Thank you so much for stopping by and for all your comments.  Please take care of yourselves.

Hugs to you all


  1. Sue, this is absolutely fabulous! And on Planet Susie who is to say that owls and butterflies can't fly together? Actually a couple of years ago we had an owl sitting on the gate post for about two hours in the middle of the day. That trellis die is wonderful - as are all your elements. As I said - absolutely fabulous! Love and hugs Christine xx
