Flutterby


I remember being with my best friend in college and us talking about butterflies. She had always LOVED butterflies (almost as much as Jessica *wink). We were talking about the name and I can't remember the exact exchange but I recall the question was posed, "why do we call them butterflies when they flutter by?" And from then on we called them Flutterbys. That sweet friend has a birthday tomorrow. We don't talk often anymore but I still think of her and all those great, unforgettable times we had together. I made this card with her in mind.
The layout is care of my talented friend, Sandra. I cased this beautiful card she sent to me. Thanks, Dearie!!
Have a great day, Friends!!
