So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Floral Tea

This is a sketch for Speedy Cat's Challenge #42 and also for JUGS#71 Technique Challenge using spotlighting technique.

I used the dp from DCWV La Creme again and also Mark's Finest stamp set Floral Tea that I had won to make this card. Spotlighting was my first attempt at doing. I used Labels 4, 13, lacey circles and Border die from Papertrey for the die cuts. The cardstock is GK ivory.  The stamps were Mark's Finest and Great Impressions frame, GKD Nina labels. Added some ribbon, beads, pins and pearls.

This is the first ever attempt at spotlighting...might have been a bit to small a space!!
