After being absent from my blog for a long time, I am back. I have had a "tough" summer. It seems like it was spent being sad. My mother was ill and in the hospital for weeks and then on to hospice and finally passed away a few weeks ago. On top of this, my oldest daughter was in the process of moving far away from home. She had graduated from college in May and was spending time home with us before her move. But I am back today and hope you will join me again as I try to get back to regular posting of my creative endeavors. :) So on to today's post!

It is one I did for Hampton Art (and is being posted on their blog today as well). I wanted to do something with butterflies which make me "happy." I have lots of flowers in my yard and have seen some of the prettiest butterflies the last few weeks. :) Thanks for stopping by. Hope your summer has been a blessed one filled with lots of butterflies. :)
