Autumn Butterflies

Afternoon all 

Busy morning with one thing and another. 

Here is my card for today 

I have used a Color Burst powders from Ken Oliver to make 
a selection of backgrounds on watercolour paper. 

I have used colours which I think reflect  Autumn colours

I then used an IndigoBlu butterfly stamp - stamping in black ink
then used a glitter pen to colour in the butterflies.  I am a bit restricted with 
Wildlife IndigoBlu stamps so hope butterflies are in order 

Then using various colours of card mounted onto a red card blank. 

Kept I hope to all the shades of Autumn Wildlife 

I would like to enter it for the following 


Interesting meditation words today 


"it is not possible to live in balance if we have a closed mind"

I do try to keep an open mind, and not to judge those who do things 
different to me... although at times it is difficult .... when all I am trying to 
do is to keep "someone" safe.

Mum is going to be without a carer over the Christmas period - her choice - 
not mine - but there lies the worry. 

Anyway I must not have a closed mind to this... keep it open ... and pray things
will be OK
