The Butterfly

Hi friends, hope everyone is well.  It was actually hot here today for us, almost 80!
Grass has been cut twice, guess we finally got some Spring.

I made today's card for a sweet niece (by marriage) who lost her brother last week suddenly at a young age.  Her family is  naturally devastated and struggling with their grief.  I just wanted her to know that we are thinking of her.

 
This is a beautiful rubber stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle-
Butterflies (00-160P4).  Thank you Donna Ellis for this beautiful
set, which I won on her Blog.

This is a beautiful stamp and you have really done it justice with your coloring. The verse is perfect. So sorry for your nieces' loss.

Your niece and her family will know that you are thinking of them as soon as they see all the love and effort that went into this beautiful card. Butterflies, in my opinion, should make everyone take a minute, forget their troubles, and smile. I'm sure this card will do that for her. Beautiful job.
