CAN YOU FIND THE BUTTERFLY???

Kind of tiny, my wee little butterfly....can you see it? I made this card for a good friend of mine at work, for her husband to give her for Mother's Day and he's surprising her with a big stamp order for Mother's Day. I tried to make a nice basic card for her so she can use it as an idea,,,and then I ordered this great stamp set for her, and the wonderful wings embosslit....among all kinds of other great stuff! And I don't "think" she looks at my blog...I hope!! That was so fun to pick out for a friend and spend someone elses money! ;) I basically just colored this with the layered marker technique, I just named that technique. :) It's just what it sounds like, but I just might do a tutorial soon, as I get so many questions on how I color using markers and blender pens. I love this flower stamp...it's so darn cute. Anyway, I am getting joy thinking about my friend receiving stamp stuff for Mother's Day. It took me really 3 years to get her actually going with stamping....and I'm so proud of her because she is now designing her own cards and enjoying it!! I've been telling her for 3 years she will forget all about puzzles if she just tries stamping, and she finally caught the bug....yay!! Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful mothers out there! Who knew the indiscribable joy and yet the deep pain that being a mom brings....??? Life is never the same,,,,right? Until next time.......

WONDERFUL, your friend is one lucky lady. :) What a great Mother's Day she will have. Yeah, Motherhood is one wild ride! I still worry so much about my grown children. 27 and 30!!! The 27 year old is going through some rough stuff with work and marriage and 2 small children. Tears me up. I try real hard to let God handle it and just LOVE him. Huugs...
