Helping Hands

     Thursday at The Outlawz means a new Twisted Thursday challenge where our theme is always "Anything Goes" with an optional twist.  This week our optional twist is "people cards."   That made me think about people who inspire me for all kinds of reasons and mostly I thought about someone I admire so very much because they are always the first to volunteer to give a helping hand to someone else.  So, this is a card of recognition to tell them how much I admire everything they do for others.


     This adorable image is called "Catch Me" and it comes from our sponsor, Stitchy Bear.  It's colored with ProMarkers, and sparkle-white gel paste on the snowman; then it's die cut.  The large snowflake is punched out and I added polka dots with a blue marker.  The blue bow is one of those I make by the dozens for my stash and the only other embellishment are the three sequins in the corner.  Everything paper came from scraps in my stash.

Well your know you've melted my hear with the snowman. He is darling and that White Sparkly Gel look terrific. Your blue die cut piece is a great holding piece for you very pretty bow and one of the ends is acting as a pointer for your precious image. It is so nice that you are letting someone know how much you appreciate them. You will make the recipient's day for sure. You have a good day yourself.
