Someone Remembers.....


Hi, Friends.....

It's been a long time since I put in an entry for Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge. Fortunately, her usual fortnight challenge was 4 weeks long this time, so even I was able to get a card in. And the theme was easy..... Butterfly/ies + Y is for You Choose &/or W is for Wedgewood Blue.  There is only a day or so left, but still time to join in the fun!!

Things have been pretty crazy here so I made a quick and easy card using patterned paper from the DCWV Botanical Stack that has both the butterfly and wedgewood blue. (I hope that is a butterfly on the paper and not a moth! The scripty text on the page mentioned butterflies, so I am saying it is one!)

 

Hey....I got a new camera!!  YAY!!!  Can you tell a difference in photo quality from my recent posts???  :)
A dear lady in our church has a rough September ahead of her. This will be the first anniversary of losing her hubby (which sadly happened on her birthday, of all days!). I thought I would make a card to let her know that her friends have not forgotten her during this especially difficult month. I totally love this sentiment from the Dare 2B Artzy - Prayers 4 You stamp set which I chose as a prize from them recently (THANKS, Dare 2B Artzy!!!).
Other supplies used include:
DCWV Botanical Stack
Dare 2B Artzy - Prayers 4 You stamp set
Distress Ink - Walnut Stain to darken the panel and ink edges
Versafine Ink - Onyx Black
Want 2 Scrap - Adhesive Rhinestones (THANKS, Diana Larson!!)
Ribbon from my stash
Hope you are safe from hurricanes, wildfires and extreme heat!  My prayers are with those who have suffered!!  We are smoky, smoky, smoky here in Idaho, but thankfully safe. Thank you so much for stopping by!
