Thanksgiving isn't far way and I know this month is all about giving thanks so, I decided the one thing I am VERY thankful for is all the blessings I have in my life. Starting with my kids, my husband and my extended family!! Of course! But I'm also thankful for all the dear friends I've met online and then later, some, in person! This Internet/web thing is so powerful and brings so many things to our lives that we may have never known about had someone not started us all on this huge world wide web! And.... one of those many wonders I've met is Suzanne Dean. Suzanne is responsible (ha!) for getting me back in touch with my Copics and the reason I've dug out so many of my cute Magnolia stamps and a few others that I had purchased but never inked up!! So today... I am sharing a very simple, Magnolia that really doesn't need much more than a card to be mounted on. I love her! A perfect little image to say, "bless you", "I'm praying for you..." or even "thanks be to God...". I'm a HUGE lover of praying hands no matter how they are presented. It speaks volumes to me!
My little image sits on top of a Pure Luxury Wild Dandelion card stock base. I layered up some Wild Lilac and then topped it off with some Yellow Crepe Ruche paper from the Paper Temptress (LOVE that texture). And... the nice part about that Ruche paper... you can stamp directly on it and your image doesn't become distorted... (my sentiment was stamped direct). Love that!! I did color my image with Copic makers and cut her out then mounted her using Pop Dots.
I hope you are having a great week... even though this is hump day, it was kinda gloomy out. Rain, cold and I hear, later, snow! YUK YUK Phooey!! But tomorrow is my day off and I may just sit and count my blessings in my PAJAMAS!!! :-)
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!! *smile
