Butterfly Blessings

As soon as I saw the Splitcoast CAS Challenge which was a sketch, I immediately envisioned using this butterfly.  He is so bright and cheerful, and my plan this morning was to make a card for our church secretary.  There are normally two secretaries but one is out recovering from surgery.  Her duties have been spread around a number of us volunteers.  Can you imagine being the remaining secretary, trying to keep us all informed and then putting together the various pieces that we are doing?  Church secretary would be a virtually impossible job on a good day!

But when I pulled the butterfly out, he was facing the wrong way.  I didn't want him staring off the card so I simply flipped the sketch!
