My sister is going through a few decision making moments right now so I wanted to send her a card to encourage her to keep sorting it out :)
This is what I came up with:
For inspiration, I turned to this week ESS Sketch, a BONUS SKETCH! Tracy Clemente extended her One Year of Sketches celebration in order to see if we can have 52 participants to have one lucky winner of a generous $52 spending spree to one of the following: All That Scraps, A Muse, The Cat's Pajamas, Stamping Bella, Memory Box, My Favorite Things OR Taylored Expressions! It looks like we did just that and can't wait to see who the winner will be! Of course I had only time to enter twice (there were no limits on the entries) but oh well, I'm glad I at least got to play with her last two sketches! :)
I also decided to play along with this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge, where the theme is Stitch It Up! - and we were ask to use stitching on our project; well since I'm not as comfortable with a sewing machine, but since this month is national sewing month, I decided to use faux stitching with a Copic 0.3 Multiliner (thanks Jenny Gropp :))
I chose this Hero Arts Asian Elements set because of this cute, wise looking owl :) , the sentiment came for a different Hero Arts set, Anytime Messages and I think the sentiment is just right!
Thanks for stopping by!
