Beautiful Butterflies

Hi all

Today I’m sharing a collection of cards that I made that all have the common theme of butterflies.  As I’m sure you’ve gathered I love butterflies, my friends joke when we’re out shopping and show me anything and everything with them on!  This stems from my lovely Grandmother, who departed a long time ago now, but the poem read at the funeral was about how every time you see a butterfly it is them, so now when ever I see a butterfly I think of her.  I’m not sure if this the poem that was read but it has a similar sentiment:

Butterfly Poem Final Flight 

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free,
I’m following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand, when I heard his call,
I followed him and left it all

I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I’ve found that peace at the end of the day.

If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah, yes, these things too I will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My Life’s been full, I savored much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one’ touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free.

As you release the butterfly, let me go,
There is something better, God wants us to know,
As the butterfly flutters with peaceful delight,
It represents my heavenly, final flight.

Right enough of the reminiscing now! Here are the cards I made:
