Z Fold Card with Butterflies

Welcome to my blog!
Sitting here at my desk, the view out the window is one of grey cloudy skies, slushy streets, and snow plow humps of snow mixed with sand.  Not a pretty sight by any means.  Inside my head I'm wondering about how much longer will it be until we see some signs of approaching spring.  Maybe spring is in my head because I've been making a few butterfly cards lately.  I just finished up a simple card using the Z fold.  It's cheery and colorful and made me feel good all over.  Maybe it will do the same for you.
