This lovely card takes me to a quiet place of wonderful memories...as kids my parents would take us on a Sunday drive into the country. Whenever one of saw something that just took our breath away my Dad would stop so we could all enjoy the moment. Butterflies, especially the Monarchs were part of our special drives. Thanks for bringing that back to me
