drawing challenge / butterfly

Overheard by Marie Antoinette;

Nadine has even more papillons to add to your wig!

I wanted to thank everyone for such kind words over the past few days.  They really meant a lot to me and I took every word to heart.  The entire family had a really hard day yesterday.  Though I was glad to have the work done in a hospital, it meant a lot of doctors, nurses, trips upstairs and downstairs, and x-rays.  My, it was a bit much for my boy but he did well despite it all.  I'm glad it's behind us.  
Thank you all again for your loving support, thoughts, and well wishes.

Dear Rachel,
thank you for the good news about Henry.

Marie Antoinette...! did you saw the movie with Kirsten Dunst? directed by Sophia Coppola? Your hairdress fits exact! Nice drawing, indeed...

Everytime I saw the picture of Henry on the blog I wanted to hug him. I am so happy it all went well and that it is over.

The drawing is beautiful, your style is great!

big hugs!

[i've had to repost my comment, since a rather undelicious lapsus appeared on paper, those darn new robot b*çµµ"#-things...]

that drawing title is nola-influenced, is it, or very period french inspired? any which way, the imagination runs riot, as did anything in MA's life...
i find you have added a prettily birdcagey feel to this week's challenge. fancy!

so glad for youse, your heno's a hero...

Congratulations for your brave boy, he made it :)
I'm glad you've been through this and now it's time to walk, look, dance, taste, smell, photograph and share again!
Big kisses Rachel, and lots of love.
