Color Combos Galore # 153 / Friend...I miss you!

I can't begin to tell you how hot it is here.  I was out school shopping for my son yesterday and I looked at the car thermometer it showed  it was 102 F!  It is going to be 110 heat index today.  I am ready for fall.  This is too hot for me.  My friends in Iowa told me it has been hot there also.  I guess we all just have to suffer. 
Speaking of friends in Iowa.  I made this card for my best friend.  We use to go out almost every Friday night and have dinner then we would go to Archiver's, JoAnn's and we would usually be home by 10:00 pm.  I enjoyed her company dearly.  I am totally bummed and missing her a ton lately.
I colored this sweet little butterfly with my Copics and used Prisma glitter on the inside of the wings.  Then hand cut the butterfly.  They didn't make a die for this butterfly.  hehe
This is the inside of the card.

Here is the fabulous inspiration photo for Color Combos Galore.
Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI/White
DP: Basic Grey, PTI/ Bitty Dot Basics 2009/ October Afternoon
Stamps: PTI/Flutterby Friend
Ribbon: Twill
Copics:
Glitter: Prisma

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Heather

I know what you mean about the heat! It's so wonderful to have a friend like your are talking about. And one that likes to shop the craft stores...yea! I love this card. I bought that flutter by set and have not used it yet. It is just so cute.

What a sweet card! I know what you mean about missing friends. My best friend just got married and he's busy with his new wife and enjoying his new house, etc. I miss his company though!! I hope it cools down for you!

Such a sweet card, love the colors. We should trade locations. Usually we are nice and sunny with some rain this time of year, but it has been raining almost non-stop for the past 2 weeks and it's chilly...today I had to wear a long sleeve shirt and jeans. I guess each weather condition has it's ups and downs...but I am so not ready for fall! Stay cool:)
