This is my place. My virtual room to chit chat and share my love of crafting with others who also go "gaga" over stamps, colored pencils, ink and paper. This is my space to stretch out with a cup of coffee or tea in my hand and my two dachsies asleep under my desk and say I made this card/gift for a friend...and I just wanted to share it with YOU!

is just something about blue flowers that gets me every time. I couldn't tell you how many times I have colored a floral image blue.... I never get tired of it. And it's strange because blue is not a color that I am drawn to in any other aspect of life. In fact, I have had painters here in the house the last two days and not a single room was painted blue....although I will say, I guess, that one of the bathrooms is now a pale teal. So, maybe that is a bit on the blue side after all. Anyways, this particular card is for a friend who is going thru a trying time in her life. We all have those rough patches that really test us....and often times we feel like we are going through our troubles alone. I want, in a small way, to let this person know that I am thinking of her and that this difficult time will eventually pass. By the way, she is a "bling" girl. I hope I put enough sparkle on......This is a Penny Black image called Sundail.. It is a terrific all purpose floral image. The sentiment is from Hero Arts Luscious Patterned Flowers. I plan to enter this card into Hero Arts Bring on the Bling monthly challenge
as well as Simon Says Stamp Challenge "Thinking of You" / or "Sympathy" card.
And here is my card. I hope it brings a little smile to her day.
