It has been quite a week! Lots of celebrations with no time available for crafting. My husband had a big birthday, and I spirited him away for last weekend. After 2 1/2 marvelous days, I came back to senior awards, two end-of-year banquets, and graduation. My beloved seniors are on their way! I had the honor of reading names at the ceremony.
So I am back - briefly. In a few weeks I will travel to Japan to visit with my oldest son for a month! He has lived and worked in Iwaki City, Fukushima for two years, and has planned lots of travel adventures for us. Until then I will craft, garden, clean out the basement and attic, and attempt to institute an exercise regimen. Ah...for a teacher summer break plans are very much like New Year's resolutions!!

My card today is soft and tranquil. The sketch is from Card Patterns. The paper is from Close to My Heart Bliss collection. The card stocks used are Grey Flannel and Colonial White. The center circle was punched with CTMH 2" scallop and inked with Universal Backgrounds (D1477) stamp in Grey Flannel, and various sentiments in Black. A licorice opaque tops the butterfly from Just Blooms (CTMH Z1266).
