Circle of Butterflies

I love being able to hostess challenges over on SCS. In addition to the F4A challenge last Friday, I was ALSO a hostess for the "Hope You Can Cling To" challenge on Thursday ... in honor of breast cancer awareness they are doing a different challenge every day during the month of October. And there are a TON of AWESOME prizes, too!! LOVE "free", don't you??

So.... this is the sample I made for the HYCCT Challenge ... "Butterflies of Hope" ... not surprising that I picked butterflies as my "theme" for this challenge, is it?? Since they have long symbolized hope and renewal, I figured that they were a perfect fit!!

I TOTALLY struggled putting this together ... y'know when ya have an idea stuck in your head and it chooses to STAY stuck?? I couldn't quite get the idea to transfer from the brain to the paper. BUT, I DO love this paper!! I think I'm going to have to order another package already!! (Spice Cake ... YUM!!)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend ... manohman, I wish I had one more day of weekend ... BUT, we ARE going to Disneyland this week (we leave on Wednesday), so at least I have THAT to look forward to!! YAY!! LONG drive, but SOOO worth it!! Smiley from

Hi Wendy~

That paper is yummy-licious! And, that circle is beautiful...I knew you would choose a butterfly. I always think of them as a sign of freedom...freedom from anything...including disease! It is a beautiful card.

Have a great time at Disney. We are probably hitting Epcot with Josh this weekend. He leaves for the Air Force in 20 days! Yesterday was his 22nd birthday! Time sure flies...check out his card,'s on the blog.


Just so you know, I do not see an email from you. I have had some eaten lately from the computer, so I am just checking to see if you wrote. Please let me know when you get a chance.
