....By a BEAUTIFUL butterfly!

Well, that's not ALL.....    Our super, duper sweet Vicki has chosen
another breath taking photograph to dazzle and inspire our most 
creative efforts...{And SHE has NOT let us down, not ONE lil' bit!}

So, of course, Mrs. LITERAL brain...    was INSPIRED....  
in a way that should NOT surprise you....

But I can assure you, I REALLY had fun being inspired!  
I busted out some WAY old Stampin' Up flower stamps 
that I ADORRRRRRRE! - and paired them with this 
exquisite butterfly stamp from Wplus9 Design studio,
and also this mighty and all purpose sentiment...

~ I feel SO prepared for card gifting!~
