Butterflies

The theme for our July ATCs is butterflies. I kept mine simple with stickers and scrapbook paper.

In another post I will show you the ATCs I received from the group-- they are gorgeous and so original.

Next month's theme is shoes and purses, which will be fun. I have a few ideas but haven't decided what to do yet.

The butterfly theme is timely because I constantly see a large yellow butterfly floating by outside my living room window. I wonder if it is the same one or if there are many of them? I never see more than one at a time.

Apollo looked so handsome this morning resting on the sunny window sill that I had to get a picture. I tried to take a black and white shot so I could join Linda's challenge, but couldn't quite figure out the camera settings. There is still a bit of pink in that fleece blanket.

Between work and blogging I have been spending so much time on the computer that my arms and wrists are starting to ache. I have been reading your blogs but not commenting as much as I usually do so I can give them a rest. Please know I enjoy your posts very much and will return to commenting more frequently soon.

Sweet picture of Apollo. He has the most beautiful eyes.

I love your Butterfly ATCs. I should get mine today since My Guy is coming up to GV. Can't wait.

Yes, you do need to let you writs and arms rest but be sure to comment on my blog. Hehe.

Hugs, Dogwood

Love the cards and Apollo is looking mighty handsome! I am on vacation and decided to take an hour and read and comment as long as I could without interruption:)

Sometimes I read blogs on my iphone and don't get around to commenting. I try to make it back but since I have been out of town, the comments are behind!

I'm with you, I enjoy reading the blogs and comment as often as I can! Big hugs my friend, take a rest... sounds like you have been busy!

Great ATC's...especially loved the word addition 'fly'...since butterflies are signs of transformation in our lives perhaps giving us new opportunities to fly.

Take care of your arms and wrists, ok?

I've been quite absent in blogland, too... just so busy with summer and all of that. Those butterflies are awesome!

Your butterfly cards are gorgeous!
And Apollo is such a cutie.

Take care of those wrists. You don't want to end up with carpel tunnel.
