Hi Everyone!
I just got back from agility class with Geena Bea, whoa, it is so hot and humid.  I cannot wait until fall gets here!

Tonight's card is for inspiration...

for the recipient!
This is a Stamping Bella image & sentiment and I just love it!
Some days work can be so taxing.
Instead of getting depressed or upset, look for the upside.
Make some SUNSHINE!
I colored the image with Copics and Spicas.
I used a Memory Box border die that Margaret gave me - I just LOVE it!
I added some purple rhinestones to it and a line of itty bitty ones under the sentiment, cut out with Nesties.
I think this will be a great encouragement card, don't you?

No sketch this time - quite unusual for me.
I am entering the following challenges:

Card Mania - pearls/gems
Created with Love - anything goes
MarkerPop - anything goes
Paula Holifield Crafts - DIEing for it
Word Art Wednesday - anything goes - inspiration

Thanks for stopping by!
