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.

Think Spring

This is for Speedy Cat's Challenge #47 at Mark's Finest -- 3 pastels, 3 bling, 1 image on a circle card.

I used the Cutting Cafe's alarm clock pattern and covered it with Basic Grey pastels -- green, pink, and then added the aqua as my third pastel with the stamping of Think Spring. I used tattered rose and shabby shutters Distress Ink and Brilliance blue on the inside. The die cuts were rick rack circles, circle scallops and the new heart spellbinders circles. The cs was GK and Mark's Finest.

I used Sakura glitter pens and some copics to do the coloring on the outside and inside. Then added some pink bling, a ribbon bow. The stamps are spellbinders beaded circle stamps and Lochart stamps.

This is the front

This is the top and bottom of the inside
