So happy MariLynn is our newest queen. Her gallery is FULL of butterflies and beautiful flowers. I made her a quick whimsical card because I am leaving tomorrow morning at 5:30 to go to Kansas City with Builders for Christ to help add an addition to a church. I will be in the kitchen making 3 meals a day for a couple of hundred people. The leaders of our group are GREAT cooks so I will be getting my wish and eating out for a few days!!!!!
When I return, MariLynn, I will make you a pretty card. Pretty takes me awhile. Whimsical is my easy to do type card. I mailed it today to you along with several other cards I had hoped to mail a few days ago but did not have chance to. MariLynn was in the group of stampers that were first to welcome my sis, mutnik, and I to SCS. Annie Jo Ryan was the absolute first but Marilynn joined the ranks soon after. Cathy and I appreciate the encouragement we got from you that helped us in our journey a couple of years ago!!!
This is also for Faiths blog to get a free digi. This was the digi from her this week and I simply love it. You can find all the details here .
Note to Annie Jo.....I tied this bow...did NOT use the bow easy so there!!!
Thank you for looking.
By the way, the center is cracked glass.

Connie, It is a good thing that I had my screen full size or the title of your card might have read... well I think you can get the picture. I love this digi image. Sunflowers are my favorite. I can see that this butterfly thinks that it is a special flower too. As always I love seeing your tree in the background behind your card. You are a special friend. I hope your mission trip goes well. I hope it isn't too hot there!

Well, you sure do whimsical very well. This is just darling. What a must have image too. Love this fun card and that perfectly self tied bow....yeah right. Just kidding. Love the addition of that butterfly too. MariLynn is going to love this. Don't be surprised if when you get home you have lot's of messages on your phone!

You actually tied this bow? Oh, something suggests otherwise. I know those arthitic and withered up hands you have and no way you could have tied this without using that cheap plastic easy bow makin' machine. I think Marco did if you want to know the truth. What a fun and whimsical image this is. You've colored it to perfection and I love the dp in the bg. Hey, BTW, I'm really lovin' your photos that are much more upclose so you can really see your card. Safe travels, sweet friend. I suppose I'll have to fill in for you while you're away. Sis needs someone to talk to everyday or else.
