Thankful for You

Hey everyone, hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s Eve and Day. Our Christmas was great…had my son come home and spend it with us and then had some of the inlaws for Christmas dinner. New Years Eve and day were pretty quiet around my place, but that’s o.k. because the time leading up to Christmas was pretty chaotic lol.

Digistamps4Joy just had a new release on Sunday and unfortunately I was late getting my card done, but better late than never. The image that I used is called Sharon. I paired her up with a sentiment from Desert Diva. I coloured her with a combination of my SU felts and my Staedtler pencil crayons and oms.

The cs is by SU and the dp isGarden Trellis in the Victoria Garden series by Echo Park Paper. I used my brand new Floral Ovals Nestibilities to frame the image and sentiment.  I cut out 2 border dies (one in the floral paper and one in the green) using my Meridian Border die by Memory Box.  I layered these and then glued them to a piece of dp and the green. I added some flat backed pearls by Recollections and some ribbon and a flower brad from SU. The flowers were from my local dollar store. The leaves were made using my leaf dies by Memory Box and my oak leaf punch by Marvy. I used my SU Pastels for distressing around the image and sentiment. I also added in some string pearl from in my stash.

I hope that you will take a few minutes out to check out all of the wonderful creations that my teammates made using some of the new images. And then pop on over to the store to see all of the incredible images that Margy has been adding lately.

Thanks for looking ~ Charlene
