O So Fru Fru Butterfly

I have been ill with yet another cold....this time a deep chest cough that has hurt so bad. Each cold seems to hit harder than the last and I have had enough! I am sick of being sick! And as such I am going to let this beautiful sparkly butterfly just carry me away to a land where healthy and feeling just ever so fine is the rule rather than the exception!

I had ordered fru fru flakes from Pennywise Arts way back when fru fru was a featured technique in the TJNL and I finally got to work with it. I was really afraid to try it and learned alot doing it...what to do and what not to do. Pennywise Arts no longer carrys the fru fru flakes, so will have to find another source when my stash is exhausted. What a glittery, awesome result though! Using permanent markers yields a much darker stained glass effect...the card featured was made with Stampin Ups Wonderful Wings stamps. Image was stamped on acetate with Staz On and on this butterfly I colored with Stampin Write markers. The card is beautiful in real life!

When Noah was two, we were treated to a beautiful large monarch butterfly who was resting. He lit on my hand and we watched as he fluttered his wings, without flying anywhere. Noah was super intrigued, as was his grandma. That was certainly one of those aha moments! I still need to get that roll of film developed!
May the brilliance of peaceful butterflies warm and refresh your soul!

I don't think I knew about you, Noah and the butterfly. Do you even know where that film is anymore?
