Less Is More Challenge #29

Good evening stampers. I had a lovely Sunday stamping and chatting with friends. It was my turn to host, but they lovingly brought everything to me, so that I didn't have to do a thing. Friends...real friends can be so good for the soul.

The Divas at LIM went easy peasy this challenge. If it can move, you can use it to enter. We certainly know that butterflies can fly and bees are always busy. Who doesn't love 'em right? This is a rather large dollar stamp from Michaels. I love the sentiment which is so appropriate for me these days. I used the Cuttlebug scrollwork folder and the stamp fit perfectly on it. The base is Nenah solar white and I stamped in Memento tuxedo black with copics used for coloring. I tried to keep the colors soothing and subtle. We need to be at peace with whatever challenges the Lord allows in our path. Butterflies sooth me.

Hope you are all having a great weekend.

Hugs & Blessings,
