We have a beautiful day today and I am so happy. It has been warmer for the last week and I'm loving it. Finally. My granddaughter came last night and took me out to dinner since she can't be here on Mother's Day. I am so lucky to have such a great family.

 I have a new stamp set from Stampin Up that I made this butterfly with. It is called Watercolor Wings and is so pretty. Having the Misti or one of the stamping positioner tools really helps get this in the right place since it is a layered set.  Be kind to one another.


  1. Gorgeous card! I love the beautiful butterfly and your lovely background. Beautifully done!

  2. Wow, this so so stunning, Brenda!! The butterfly look amazing!! I love the background, too!! Gorgeous colors!! Have a great day!! Big hugs :)

  7. What a beautiful card, Brenda! I LOVE the big butterfly!!!!!!!

  8. You did a great job with the layering on your butterfly, Brenda, and I love the ombre colors you have used! I also love the sediment and border background!! I hope your lovely warm weather continues for AGES!! Hugs, Darnell

  10. Hi brenda,
    what a very wonderful card and I love the gorgeous stamped butterfly.
    Your design is brilliant and I also love the colours used.
    I agree the Misti is such a super invention no more throwing out stamped images that you can't get right is such a bonus.
    I have attempted things I wouldn't dream of doing by hand.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  11. Brenda this is stunning! Of course I love the colors you used, but the butterfly is a real showstopper! The added side color that looks almost linen like is really attractive! And what a wonderful sentiment too! I am so happy that you are surrounded by wonderful loving family! Heart Hugs to you and Happy Mother's Day!!
