Happy Monday Everyone!!  I hope you all had a great weekend!!  It just goes so fast.  Our spring did too....it is snowing here. LOL!  Nice 60 to 70 degree weather and then snow...Go figure...

Anywho...I am not and warm in my home homeschooling the girls again today and then it is time to do some more CLEANING, and then hopefully some more crafting and blogging!!

Today I wanted to share another creation made with some fun images from Stamp and Create.  Lacey is still in the process of moving.  The poor girl...what a lot of unpacking and settling in as well as orders to send out! Thinking of you Lacey.  While she is doing this, however, the dt is still busy creating.

For today I wanted to share a Thinking of you card I made for someone in need.

I used Say a Prayer from Wags n Whiskers and the new Whimsy Postage Stamp Sentiments. The sentiment is cut out with the Whimsy Shapeology Postage Stamp Die.  The bow is tied with the Bow Easy.  
The paper is one of my fave retired papers from Stampin up, Parisian Breeze.  And...yes ... there is a handmade crocheted flower on there too.  I made them in white so I could dye them to the colors I want or layer it with a colored flower over top.

It has been a while since I water colored so I took out my water colors for this one.  The wings are sparkly but it is hard to see in this photo.  If I were to color her again, I would make her cheeks a little less rosie....oh well.

For more inspiration using stamps from Stamp and Create, please visit my dt sisters:
 Joy, Heidi, Vicky and  Jeanette.
