Everything But the Wings


I spent some time coloring recently and found myself enjoying a 'new' 'old' image. This was the very first Paper Shelter image I  bought several years ago, it is called Sophie In The Country. Recently, our lovely artist 'tweaked' it and it is ever so lovely. I love the sweet face and the gentle look. I had a rather rough week-end dealing with personalities and people with lots of issues going on. These times are when I want to be like Sophie and sitting on a fence enjoying the day. LOL! I added some quilled butterflies. It has been a bit of time since I have quilled and it took me longer to make the butterflies than it did to color my image. I added a little sticker heart to the butterfly to match the hearts in the corners. This card will go to a little girl from church for her birthday. I am sure she will love it. I hope your week is filled with blessings!

The Paper Shelter will be having a DT call starting on the 10th. I can tell you they are a fabulous group to be a part of and so generous with their lovely images. I love being on the team and I am beyond thrilled that I can stay on one more term. Please consider entering your work ! 
My Song: (Alan Jackson)It’s hard to describe
  • It’s hard to describe
    You’re like nothing I’ve ever known in my life
    Kindness flowing from down deep inside your eyes
    So selfless and complete
    Beauty in and out
    All around you not a single cloud
    Like the rain just stops before it hits ground
    And puddles at your feet
    You’re an angel
    I know heaven wonders where you are
    Like you fell off some ol' shining star
    Right into my heart
    An angel
    When I’m with you I feel like a king
    Just like out of some old movie scene
    An angel
    Everything but the wings

I was just going to say how much I love those butterflies and aren't you so talented to be able to make them! Sorry your weekend was a tough one. Hope the week is going better!

Just had to drop by and tell how wonderful I find your card. It's really lovely. Your quilled butterflies are amazing. Hope that you get to have "the sitting on the fence day", you deserve it!
Love n hugs

Ok lets see, I adore your quilled butterflies! I bought some of the paper but didn't do much with them, you are tempting me to pull it out. And I love the Paper Shelter images, wish I had more time to play along or apply for the dt. Would be awesome being on a team together!

Beautiful card Miss Patty, sorry to hear you had a tough week-end. Sometimes we need to just go "sit on a fence" & take a little time out to BREATH as Glenda says. Hope things are better now. Those quilled butterflies are darling. Is there NOTHING you can't do? Beautifully colored image, makes me wish spring would hurry & get here.
Hugs, Janie
