Thinking of You Card Using Cricut Artiste and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridges

Hello friends.  It has been really hot here in Southern CA; even in this air conditioned house.  I am not sure how people live without air conditioning.  I know I am spoiled; but I wouldn't be able to breathe if I had to deal with living in the heat.  I hope everyone is doing well.  I am still being challenged with this burning in my mouth, throat, esophagus and stomach; without much relief.  I am still having lab tests, etc; for them to try and figure it out.  

I colored this image months ago; but started the actual card about a month ago for my mother; but just finished it last week and sent it to her. I love this image from Delicious Doodles; that I received a long time ago.  My mother loves butterflies; so I thought it was perfect for her.  I love the shape of this card.
