Well let us try this again!! I posted my card yesterday but blogger would not post the photo....grrrrr!!  

Happy Thursday all!!! I hope all is well for all!!  Sorry for my addition to a lack of technology, things have been quite eventful for our family in the last week.  We have now moved our furniture and boxes onto a tractor trailer to be stored for a few weeks and have had a closing on our house here in NY.  We are now currently in limbo without a home...visiting with a variety of family. While I am enjoying my family time, I look forward to some sort of routine and knowing where things are. 

Today I would like to share one of the last cards I created before having all my stamps and supplies packed up.  This card uses the Quote Collection 2 recently release for Our Daily Bread Designs 4th Anniversary and the images of butterflies from the ODBD stamp set Faith.


The background of my card is embossed with three different Provocraft embossing folders: D'vine SwirlVictoria, and Polka Dots on Neenah Solar White Cardstock. The dies used include Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish and Exotic Butterflies Small and Spellbinders Lacey Circles and standard circles.  The ribbon is May Arts White Silk and 1/2 inch white wrinkled ribbon. The lace is from a RAK.  The bottom of the card is punched with a Martha Stewart Daisy Border die.

I am entering this card into Word Art Wednesdays.  This week's scripture they are sharing is
