Hello friends! I can't believe all the heavy snow in the Northeast. I feel so bad for all of you that live anywhere near that area. It must be very cold and difficult to get around. Please be careful out there or anywhere else that it is freezing with snow and ice.
I have been sick the past 10 days; but I am starting to feel better; and hopefully on the road to recovery. It is hard for me to stay in bed or to sleep when I feel bad. My husband and others that I know sleep more and stay in bed when sick. I try to do less and take a lot of breaks to read; but it is very difficult to be sick. LOL!
A friend of mine asked me to create a Thank you card for her in-laws; so I have been trying to create a few for her to choose from. This was my favorite of the four that I created for her. I will be presenting them to her next week for her to choose. The pictures didn't show the true colors of the purples; but I did the best I could to get them as close as possible.
I am using Ching-Chou Kuik "Monarch Butterfly"; which is a fairly new image. It comes with another image in the set; and you can also purchase the colored version of each of them. This is my first time to use my Zig Water based Markers; although I have had them for at least a year, I think. LOL! I decided to create an Easel card; which is one of my favorite cards. The colors of the butterfly and flowers are a violet blue; so not the color shown there. LOL! Lavenders/Purples are the hardest to photograph of any colors I have found.
