FMS #243, Butterflies and watercolor what a full plate

This is a fun challenge for me.  I usually don't have a card that matches other challenges but this card is good for four. WOW.  I have been gone for a couple of weeks, we went to Yellowstone and had a wonderful time. If you want you can scroll down and check out some of the photos.  I also was inspired by Seize the Birthday and Serendipity challenges to watercolor and include butterflies so after I got home I watercolored this picture below.. hope you enjoy it.



I'm playing along with Freshly Made Sketches, Serendipity and Seize the Birthday and Send a Smile 4 Kids.
A few Yellowstone pictures, as I get them developed I'll include a few more.. it was a great trip.
So many animals to see and babies galore..



Very pretty but a bit daunting.. it is an active volcano.. yikes

Mamma bear.. she went up the tree and told her babies to come out of hiding and down came two little guys.. how sweet..
Here I am mama.. but its very high ..
Thanks for stopping by.  Susan

Happy Birthday Faith

Well I have been gone to Yellowstone for a wonderful trip with my Hubby but I'm happy to be back.  I have a niece that is working for one year in Japan. Her name is Faith and she was born on the 4th of July.  How fun is that.  She will be gone for her first holiday and birthday so I'm sending off lots of happy wishes for her.  I will enter this card in Seize the Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by.

Kitty love

Love this little cat.. wishing someone a purr-fectly Happy Birthday.  I've been very busy with grandchildren and painting but this little guy wanted to get out of the camera and onto my blog so I'm letting him run off to Seize the Birthday and Send A Smile 4 Kids.
