We NEED butterflies!

I love the quote on this card.  I made this for a wonderful lady at church whose life is constantly changing and who manages it at all with her deep faith.  She has multiple sclerosis.  Her 7-yr old daughter has had repeated occurrences of LCH (it's not cancer but is treated like cancer).  Her husband decided he was too weak to handle it all and left ("weak" is my word - I'm sure it isn't his word).  Now she is in the process of moving her family out of their home into an apartment.  And...she manages everything while working full-time and being a dedicated volunteer at church. I know the quote on this card is very simplistic when it comes to her life, but I also know that this is how she views her life - there will be butterflies. She's an amazing inspiration to all of us.


This beautiful butterfly and quote is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  They have a very nice mix of stamps.  They sell digis and clear stamps.  (My butterfly and quote is from the digi set and I have sized down the butterfly a little bit as compared to the clear set). Their stamps range from beautiful and meaningful Christian sentiments to the fun little Cocoa Mouse.  Check him out on this Christmas card.  They have a new digi set called Circus Fun that really needs an excuse to jump into my cart!  (As if any stamp needs an "excuse" to end up in my collection!)
