A bit of a scrappy card......

Over at Wee Memories this weeks challenge is "Dust off those scraps".  I was perusing the Hero Arts Flickr group discussions and I saw that Sarah had challenged us to make a card with the colours of the new Hostesses aprons..... (see here) ~ well I came up with a very simple card that covered both....
You're so special........(WMC42)


I went to the scrap pile and found some card stock and some paint chips and punched out the 5 butterflies.... Then found the tall card for them to land on... added the sentiment ~perfect for these 5 very special ladies... Anita, Sharon D, Sally, Heather and Linda W. Simple but effective I think.

Today was the funeral for my stamping friend Sue.... a very emotional time as she was a very incredible woman, much loved by those who she touched.  Our group was all there to say goodbye... Sandie, Lei, Helen, Janet, Glenda and myself... We will miss Sue at our next gathering in a few weeks, won't be quite the same again.  RIP my friend.

thanks for stopping by..
