Fusion: Butterfly Wreath

Not quite butterfly season here yet but I'm happy with these paper ones!  The trees are budding.....the grass is greening.....and T-Ball practice has begun.  The Big Guy is helping to coach Miss Emma's team and they are both having a great time.  Her mom played softball back in the day.  I had a Scottie named Pudge back then that used to come to the games and sit on the bleachers next to me.  During one game a gal hit a foul ball into the bleachers and knocked Pudge right off the bleachers into the grass underneath.  Luckily I wasn't too high up and she was not hurt.  But the game was temporarily halted when girls from both teams rushed into the bleachers to make sure the dog was ok.........thankful for an understanding umpire.....gotta love small town life!

Use the photo or sketch or both like I did at Fusion!  Hope you join us!

Stamp Set:  Blissful Butterflies (Pretty Pink Posh)
Ink:  Memento Black, Bermuda Bay, Copics

Pretty buffer fly stamps! I love that you used that woodgrain behind them, makes them pop! Your hello die is perfect too. We're seeing butterflies and have bluebird and chickadee babies in our bird boxes already!

Your butterflies are so sweet and I love how you colored them, Linda! Beautiful woodgrain panel and stitched border, too! As always, you've done an amazing job on the Fusion!
Thanks for sharing your great story with us...yes, small-town life is wonderful and it looks like your darling granddaughter is enjoying it, too :)

What a sweet little butterfly creation! Love the picture of Miss Emma...our church got together a softball team this season....we are at the bottom of the list, haven't won a game yet, and are always looking out for foul balls, but we're having fun! So glad that Pudge was okay!! (My aunt had a dog named Pudgie--too funny!)
