House Mouse ATC

This is the second card I made for the One Stop Craft Challenge I'm hosting this week. I've chosen 2 photos for you to find inspiration in that are to honor my mom who passed away a year ago. She was a lover of butterflies and a few days before she journeyed to heaven she told me not to worry; whenever I saw a butterfly I would know it was her saying hello. I smiled and told her it would be a long winter, since butterflies aren't very plentiful in MN winters. She scoffed and said to keep my eyes open, butterflies are everywhere, on cards, in magazines, photographs, all over the place. She was right. I've seen more butterflies this past year than I can count and each time I feel as if I've been hugged by my sweet mom.

Thanks for stopping and I hope you join the OSC challenge this week. Here are the cards I made for the challenge. Today I'm featuring the House Mouse Artist Trading Card.
