Paint Mushrooms

     I spent the day yesterday coloring stamps and digis and now I have several which are ready to be made into cards on a moment's notice.  Some of them are even die cut and matted already.  Since coloring takes the most time for me when it comes to making cards, it's nice to have some images colored and ready.  Who knows how they'll get used?

     The card I'm sharing with you today has an image from A Day for Daisies.  It's a card of encouragement for a friend who's feeling overwhelmed at the moment and who loves fairies so this was a perfect image.


     This is a single layer card with the sentiment and the image printed directly onto the card front, then colored.  I added a bit of glitter to the wings.  The polka dot bow is the only embellishment and is one of those I sew by the dozens.

     Challenges:

     I'll have more for you throughout the week.  Next weekend, I'm running away for 3 days with my granddaughters.  Their spring break starts when they get out of school on Friday and we're going to spend 3 says in Orange County where Disneyland and a couple of other theme parks reside.  I'll have to work ahead on my DT commitments so that I can spend fun time with them.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

I'm liking the idea of putting sentiment and image on the same page as a nice change of pace. I did that several time this past week and even tonight. Your card is very pretty and sweet and surely it will give your friend that little "lift and smile" she needs.
