Butterflies and Bees

Are you seeing more butterflies than normal? I sure am. They are flitting everywhere I look lately. We have had an extremely wet summer (it is raining again as I write this) and also hot and humid. I know we have more mosquitos - they are like B52 bombers they are so big! I try to stay inside in the evenings as even the skitter juice is not working on them.

Todays card was so simple. When I went to DesMoines IA in June there is a store called Heirlooms By Design that we always visit. They had a board of cards up that they were having a class on and the card I made was one similar to what they had. It is stickers by Penny Black and then 3D stickers by K&Co. The paper was stash. I added some Stickles to the sticker by Penny Black. I also made one of some of the Bees that came on the same sheet of 3D stickers. The paper was some I picked up at Archivers but didn't write down the name of it. I think they both turned out really pretty. What do you think?

If you can, I would appreciate a few prayers on Friday as my husband, Bill has to have spinal surgery. We are a tad bit nervous about it although we trust and like his doctors very much. Thanks so much

Until next time, Happy trails to you....



  1. Sheri,
    Cards were great but don't look so simple to me. I will remember you both in my prayers.

  2. Sheri your cards are just as pretty as the ones we saw in Des Moines. I ended up ordering some of the butterflies after all.

    (P.S. if anyone wants some stickers, I have extra.)

  3. I meant to tell you that I love the designer papers you used for the cards too.

    And Sheri, you know Bill's "Harem" will all be praying for him on Friday!

  4. Boy oh boy these are soooo very pretty!! They just blow my mind at how simple you say they are cuz they look like you spent hours at them.

    I will be sending prayers your way for Bill. I hope all goes fine and his recovery is speedy. Let me know how everything goes. HUGS!

  5. I love your cards. They came out really pretty. You have my prayers for hubby's surgery.

  10. These are all gorgeous, Sheri! Wonderful stickers and such well put-together cards. You and Bill are in my thoughts and I hope all goes VERY smoothly on Friday.

  11. Sheri,
    I'll be praying for you both tomorrow. I know that you will be having a stressful day, but it will soon pass. On a lighter note, your cards are amazing. Just beautiful. You do such gorgeous work.
