Butterfly Friends (on sale too!)

 Hi Peeps!  How is your summer going? It has been a cool one and we haven't had any real heat waves to speak of.  I LOVE IT!  The heat just melts me to a puddle, so I am really enjoying the cool days we have been having.  I will take wearing a sweater over dripping with sweat any day! lol
Here is a card I made for my purple loving daughter using "Butterfly Friends", one of my spring images for Whimsy.  It is currently marked down 31% (as of today, Sunday the 24th of August) so grab it while it is still on sale!
