Prize: Image(s) of choice to winner up to $15 value from the SNS Exclusive Line 

 The image I was given to use is called "Butterfly Rose Corner" by Bugaboo.  Ever since I saw this image I wanted it.  Then I saw that we would be sponsored by Bugaboo and I got excited.  I didn't even have to buy it.  This stamp is actually a corner stamp.  The card I saw had used it like this and I just loved the idea.  Unfortunately, my computer skills are not that advanced.  I had to have my FABULOUS SISTER from SYDNEY'S SENTIMENTS do this for me.  She such a great sister and so extremely talented.  You should check out her blog and see what an amazing artist she is.  
Anyway, after she doubled it up for me I colored one image and then colored the roses and butterflies again in another.  I cut them out and popped them up to give some dimension.  I used Glastique over all of the them to give some shine.  When I first started to make the card I wanted to put a simple scripture verse in it.  Then changed it to a sympathy card.  My aunt passed away and I thought this would be a nice card for my uncle. 
My daughter is all settled in at college now.  She is enjoying her classes and making lots of friends.  I on the other hand am just crushed without her.  It's so hard to let your baby go.  I am so proud of her and happy for her.  I can't wait till the first break so I can have my baby back again.  I am truly grateful for Face-time.  At least I can see her still.  Here she is when she first arrived to school.

I hope you have been inspired to create and enjoyed your visit.  Please stop by the LTSCB and check out all the wonderful creations and then join us in the challenge.

Thanks for your visit and have a fantastically amazing day!

Love your card today Robin, I always have a love of floral wreaths and this one with the roses is delightful.

I can totally identify with your feelings at the moment, it's hard when they go off to collage and I hope you can as I have done, find some comfort in losing yourself in crafting.
