"NEW" - Stampin' Sisters in Christ #72

Guess I was wrong... I said I wouldn't be back til the end of next week but when I saw this challenge at http://stampinsistersinchrist.blogspot.com/ I just knew I had to participate.

2 Corinthinas 5:17 - Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things have become new.

Yesterday 5 gals got together to do some dry embossing... two of them were very new at this. I am showing you a card I put together during that time ... what fun we had! I have always loved the beauty of the butterfly!
There is a quote that goes something like this that I like as well! "What the catepillar sees as the end, the butterfly sees as a new beginning". I cannot look at a butterfly without thinking of newness and new beginnings - especailly after having journeyed with a dear Sister in Christ thru her cancer journey this past year! She has been a true inspiration to all around her as she has "Let Go and Let God". She - who loves butterflies - is truly a butterfly today! Praising God for that!
So Janet - this post is in honor of you!

Thanks for stopping by today... see you next week!
