Butterfly Wishes...

Hello friends!
As always, after church, there is a need for cards. This week, we have a friend with a broken hip, and another who has been diagnosed with cancer.  So, this afternoon was spent doing some quick sponging and stamping.

This card uses Hero Arts Stamps - I just sponged with distress inks, and stamped with the darkest of the greens - peeled paint.  The inside sentiment says "that God will keep you in his care".

This is again stamped with Hero Arts stamps.  I inked the top butterfly with Memento Daffodil, the next with Stormy Sky Distress Ink, the next with Spun Sugar, and the last with Dusty Concord.  I pounced Rusty Hinge on the center and different spots with a small sponge dauber, and then stamped.

This is some very old stamps that I've had like, forever!!!

Have a wonderful week!

Hugs & smiles,
Patti J.
