Happy Birthday

I want to start off by saying thank you for all the support you have so kindly given me. You girls are so wonderful and I truly appreciate your friendship! Thank God for making cards too, as it helps keep my mind busy and helps relieve the insurmountable stress .

 
I made this card for a very special friend in my life that has helped me beyond words. I love the spring colors and this new frame and butterfly from PTI.
 
 
 
 
I'm going to add this card to NBUS over at Darnell's. I'm sure you all know and love Darnell,  but if you haven't met her in blogland take yourself over for a visit here!!

Have a wonderful day and thank you so much friends! Hugs, Char

It is a beautiful birthday card Char. Have you thought about starting an art journal?
It might me a great way to paint your feeling either with paint or paper cut outs. Just let it all hang out in your journal.

This is so beautiful, Char! Just jaw-dropping beautiful! I came in the front door and also saw that magnificent and vibrant PTI card you posted and then I scrolled around a bit. I have to say, you really rock watercoloring!! Thank you for your very sweet comment and for playing in my NBUS Challenge #6! I'm very sorry to hear that you are under a lot of stress. I hope everything is okay with Kinley. Sending extra big hugs!! Darnell

Char, your friend will love - as I do - your gorgeous Spring-palette butterfly, that has alit on the pretty background and frame you've designed for it. So striking! Continuing to send prayers and hugs; hopefully, things are resolving for the positive. Making cards is certainly fabulous 'therapy'; helped me beyond belief when my dad passed away...We're here for you!!
Hugs~c
