Plant your Garden...

Hello my friends...Happy Sunday.

I know I don't post often on Sundays but I just couldn't wait to show you this card. I hope this is ok to say, but this might just be my favorite Stampavie card I've ever made. To quote my friend Janna, sometimes the "stars just align" and well...I guess they did when I was making this because I just really love how it turned out. I hope you do too...thanks for looking!
Have you all seen the new Sarah Kay images from Stampavie? I am in LOVE with this new image called "Spring is Back". I had the BEST time coloring this image and pairing it with some of my favorite Wisteria paper from Basic Grey. I also had time to enter the Friday sketchers challenge using this sketch so I was happy to be able to play in their challenge for the first time.

I thought this quote from Paper Makeup stamps just couldn't be more perfect for this image and is a true reminder of how we are all in control of our own happiness and the way that we see the world. I know I, for one, try to see it as "floral" and colorful as possible! This card truly evoked some really good feelings in me about all I have in my little "Garden" of life... and for that I am so, so thankful.

I hope you enjoy this card and post and I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

Hugs,
Jess ;)
