Give Thanks...

Sometimes I get so caught up in all the drama that surrounds my life, and trust me...there is a TON of it right now, that I forget to be thankful for what I do have. I have my health, 3 beautiful nieces and one adorable nephew, great friends, great bosses, and a room full of stamps....what more could a girl ask for?? I think that is why this is my new favorite Sophia. She is sweet and simple and reminds us to say thanks....a reminder I need more than once a day. This card was made for one of the Paper Pretties release party challenges from last month. Charmaine provided us with this gorgeous sketch and I thought it would work perfect with my favorite little girl!! I stamped her on Gina K. White with Memento Tuxedo Black. I then colored her in with my Copics and cut her out with my Cuttlebug and Nesties. I stamped the image twice so that I could make the flower out of the circle. I layered it with Bravo Burgundy. I chose my complementary colors with my SU color wheel....so don't judge, lol!! The ribbon and DP are both from SU(Parisian Summer DSP).
Give Thanks is June's Stamp of the Month, so if you are a subscriber, she will be sent to you within the month before she is released to the public. For more info on the Stamp of the Month Club...check this out!!

  3. It's definitely easy to forget the great things that surround you when you have so much going on in your life. And you girl, have a lot going on! I hope you enjoy your weekend and that you get in some extra stamping time :)

    Hugs!

  6. She is so sweet, and I love how you framed her in the circle Nestie, Jess! Pretty colors, too! I'm sorry to hear you have too much drama in your life right now, but it sounds like you have a good handle on perspective and being thankful for what you do have.

  7. What a beautiful card! I love the image! I'm sorry for the all the 'drama' in your life. I've gone through many divorces with family and friends so I know how hard it is. I noticed you used the word 'bosses' of people you are thankful. I hope that means you found a good job. congrats if you did.
