Whatever is true

Butterflies and verse

Our family is in the midst of June busyness at present. Track meets, tournaments, concerts, assignments, exams and a trip all to be fitted in before the end of June. That’s why things have been a little quiet here on the blog. I made this card a while ago when I was playing around with the Life’s Messages set.

I masked the right side of the card with a large post-it note then added a smaller post-it to make the indent. The butterfly area is sponged and stamped with memento inks.

I am excited to be heading off to Washington DC in a couple of days and looking forward to meeting a few of my blog readers in Reston, VA on the weekend.

While I haven’t had much time to blog lately I have been very encouraged by the kind and generous comments left here by so many of you. I appreciate the time you take to leave me a message. Thank you.


Stamps: Life’s Messages, Social Butterfly, Verdant (PB)
Ink: Memento Summer Sky, Elderberry, Sweet Plum (Tsukineko)

    As always, just beautiful. Lucky you to go to Reston. I think there is a nice shop there. Never had the chance to check it out. Enjoy Washington, DC. So much to see. If you have the opportunity, go to Mt. Vernon. Well worth the admission. Smithsonian is fantastic, and can’t wait to hear about what you get to see. (We went in early May). Have a grand time. TFS

    This is beautiful, Heather! I love the dappled light effect in the centre of the panel – it’s as though you’re looking up through the trees to the sky. Enjoy your mini break!

    What a cool idea to mask out space for the sentiment to nestle in! Thanks for your comment on my card – I’m a little further along the 401 than you were at, although I know where you were. I’m close to the 401 right in the centre of Toronto, near Yonge Street (very close to Yorkdale Mall, if you know where that is). Next time you’re down this way, maybe we can meet for coffee!

    I’m excited. There was a cancellation on Saturday, so I’ve signed on to attend both classes. Looking forward to meeting you and learning. See you soon. Travel safely.

    Your cards are so beautiful. I am really in awe of you. You have an amazing talent and should have a book published along the lines of Francoise Read of Woodware; in my opinion!
