E: Thank you Jesus for the milk. Amen.
Me: Do you know how to give thanks in Chinese?
E: Yes. Thank you Jesus for the 牛奶. Amen.

"Just living is not enough," said the butterfly, "one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower." ~ Hans Christian Anderson

A Sizzix layout for Made With Love inspired by butterflies and a white flower. I used a familiar favourite that is probably found in every scrapper's shelf - the Tattered Flower die. Just trim away one or two petals and add some blings.

Cutting them out of vellum and mesh ribbons gives these flutterby an ethereal feel. In fact some of them are almost ready to takeoff! Don't be surprised to see some butterflies fluttering in the wind when you next visit the store.

Happy National Day

Our nation's 46th birthday. A day to be thankful for how far we've come and how much more we need to go.

I have a wish for my homeland: to be a peaceful place for my girls to grow up in and a haven for my loved ones.
