Encouragement Card Using CTMH Brushed paper and DS4J Butterfly Fairy New Release

Hi Blogland!  I hope everyone is doing well.   I am so excited; because my oldest son just called and said they are coming 3 days early; so we will get to spend time with him and his family.  The 2 teenage grandchildren are staying for a week; while their parents do a training for their Missionary work.  They are working towards getting church sponsors for Missionary work in Argentina.  I can't wait to see them.

It is time for another new release at DS4J.  I chose DS4J Butterfly Fairy. She is so adorable! Be sure to check out all the fabulous creations by the DT.  There are other releases as well.  I chose this one; because I love butterflies and fairies.  Wait till you see the sentiment inside.  Again - it was influenced by my granddaughter - Gabrielle.  I am going to send it to 4 of my grandchildren; my daughters children.  Three are girls; so I think they can really use it; especially when dealing with the boys/men in their lives.  LOL!

I am entering this card in the Path Of Positivity Challenge - Courage.  I think it takes a lot of courage to slow down, and to stop chasing things; the job, the money, the man, the friends, etc.  Just go with the flow and let things fall into place as they are meant to be. That is when the magic happens.
