Pretty Pink Petals

Hi friends.  I hope you're having a great weekend.  It has been a quiet weekend for me, because I did something to my back and am having a hard time getting around.  I'm good at entertaining myself though, so quiet time is fine with me.

Isn't this a beautiful evening sky?  Even though storm clouds were moving in, it was still so pretty.  God's handiwork. :)  I wish the wires weren't in the middle of the picture, but I can't begrudge my neighbors phone and electricity. lol

I'm not sure who makes the flower and butterfly stamps.  They're unmounted stamps that I've had for ages.  The sentiment stamp is from Heart & Soul Rubber Stamp Company.  One of my favorite stamp companies.  I put some foam tape under the upper portion of the butterfly's body to give it some dimension.
