Hi Everyone!! I hope you are all doing well today!! I am so excited to be sharing the second day of sneak peaks with Wags n Whiskers Gorgeous images.This image is Hannah Fairy which will be available tomorrow at 7 a.m. EST.  I colored her with copics and thought it would be fun to create a circular card for her with a distressed or shabby chic feel to her. The dp is DCWV Nursery Paper.  I made the shape with my circular nestibilities and added sewing for some texture. The sentiment is from Stampin UP. I plan on giving this to my dear daughter who sometimes feels like she is not as special as her sister.  I hope this shows just a measure of how much I love her.

The second creation I have to share with you today uses the Divine Diva inspiration challenge photo sent to me by Lori.  I love Lindt Chocolate so I thought this was so fun to use and make a gift set for my daughter's Sunday School teacher.  I would make it for her regular school teacher but that would be me. LOL!  Not that I wouldn't enjoy this for myself...

I used the image: Teddy Bear Abc's image illustrated by Meljen's Designs' available as a digi at Whimsy stamps.  I just thought this is the perfect school time image.  I then created a chocolate gift holder that can be hung over a water bottle.
The sentiment is from Whimsy's Ticket Sentiments created by Ann Vento and is available as a rubber stamp set.
