Butterflies for encouragement

A friend is recovering from one of those “health episodes” that make us all stop and think. I take care of so many people in my life – do I need to do more for me? What would happen if…?  We’re all so glad she is home and recovering, and of course I hoped I could send a little encouragement her way.

  • Stamps:  Watercolor Wings, You’ve Got This
  • Color Palette:  Whisper White, Sahara Sand, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo
  • Accessories:  Big Shot, Bold Butterfly Framelits, Butterflies Thinlits, Wink of Stella Clear, Vellum card stock, Silver thread, Metallics Sequins Assortment, Fine Tip Glue Pen, Glue Dots

I’m officially obsessed with cutting out the detailed butterfly wings in vellum.  (News Flash: I am obsessed with Way.Too.Many.Things)  The Fine Tip Glue pen works quite well to adhere just the body to the base, leaving the wings to move.

I twisted a piece of Silver thread to make it stay in a V shape and put it between the vellum and the base with an extra dab of the Fine Tip Glue pen.  It’s a little touch, but then again, it’s all about the little touches, now, isn’t it?

Take good care of yourselves, my friends.  You are important.  You are loved.
