WAHOO!!! 100!!!

I NEVER thought this day would EVER get here!! This is "Follow the Butterflies" card #100!! Which blows my mind on more than one level . . . I only have FOUR more to go!! Which means that just in a little over a month we will be traveling to Germany to pick my son up! Holy COWSERS!! These two years have gone so much faster than I thought they would!

This is another butterfly that "flew around the world" for my son as well. One of my daughter's friends (Hey, Merin!) recently returned from a trip with her family to Hong Kong (her mother is from there and they go there every summer to visit). She always brings funs little snacks and trinkets for my daughter and her other friends. This year, however, she remembered ME, too!! Knowing that I am doing these cards, she bought me this BEAUTIFUL red silk hand-cut butterfly. It is really even more amazing in person! I can't EVEN imagine cutting this out by hand! YOWZA!!! So now, this butterfly has traveled from Hong Kong to Salt Lake City, and will be on its way to Landshut, Germany today! That's a long journey, even for a butterfly!! I think I need to start using some new colors, too, 'cause I've been stuck in the red/black mode for a bit!

Be sure to come back again tomorrow for a sneak peek of the new AWESOME set being released at "There She Goes." Jessica (the owner of TSG) called and asked me if I would return for a special Guest Designer for this release. You are going to love it as much as I do, I am sure!!!
