Inspired Butterfly...mini book

I created this card using a transparency which I ran through my CB machine and colored with alcohol based Prisma Color markers. The circle paper was created using an pronline graph paper printing site. The butterfly was cut out of a magazine and stickles were added. I used my quickie glue pen and some Dazzling Diamonds glitter for sparkle. The sentiment is from Verve Visuals.
I'm definitely going to be doing more with alcohol inks and transparencies. I love the look.

Today, I'm going to try to get our bunny in to the vet because he has a dry, flaky spot on his back...any guesses?!?!

I also really want to finish up this mini album I've been working on for baby Jonah with his ultrasounds. I had five ultrasounds with him because of the previous miscarriage and my hyperthyroid condition.
From this little spec, which I was elated beyond belief about because we had a heartbeat to...

This amazing little guy back in June. Our Heavenly Father is truly Amazing!Have a great day and many hugs.

Awwwww...Baby! I just love it. Love those 3D ultrasounds. We had one with Aaron and it was amazing. I can't wait to see little Johnah. Is that right? My brain is fried, cause, well, ya know.....5 kids. Too funny if that is right, cause our Matthew is actually JOHN Matthew.

Okay, so I'll be sharing the item I stole from you soon, cause I'm too impatient to wait for the mail man. Hee hee.

Anyhow, the card is gorgeeeeeeeeeeeous and I'm so glad you didn't give birth in a tent!

What a beautiful book! I had tons of u/s with Evan too. At the end I went in for at least one a week. It was fun at first, but week after week dragged on especially with the weekly stress tests too.

My dad said that they had to take the dog in today because of dry flaky patches and a lot of people at the dog park are reporting similar things with the dogs there. It's allergies. Maybe it's the same for the bunny.

You are right...our heavenly Father truly is very clever to have thought up the miracle of life, as is the person who invented that unbelievable 3D scanner. 15 days to go...wow...almost time.

Another beautiful card...you are so creative Misty. TFS!
