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.

Thinking of You

This is for the Outlines Monday Challenge 11 -- Inspiration Photo. (Here is their website)
This was the picture for inspiration.

I looked through my paper supply and found some dp paper by DCWV that I thought was perfect for this one. It was from the Lemon Flower Pack and Jewel cs by DCWV and I used GKD white cs for the base. I stamped with Black Tuxedo Memento ink the Outlines E-733 Flower Motif Sq. Lg on the outside and Outlines #912 Thinking of You for the inside. I cut out the image square and then used Spellbinders Eyelet Squares die cut and put the Cuttlebug Fanciful tags for the background of that. Colored with Copics, Sakura glitter pens. I used a Martha Stewart lace punch to create the lacey edge on the front and the inside. The dots were added with Viva Pearl Pen and Liquid Pearls, some ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and some bling and embellishments from the stash drawer. The flower on the front was highlighted with a green hatpin from Mark's Finest Products. This was a great challenge and I really enjoyed making this one!
