GDT card for Sundays with Crissy

I'm so very honored & privileged to be given an opportunity to be a Guest Designer on Sundays with Crissy. Crissy Armstrong creates such beautiful images one of which is this little sweetie called "Say a Prayer". The theme for October at Sundays with Crissy is Thanks or Thanksgiving so I thought what better way to say thanks than to offer up a sweet prayer......."Thank you for being you". This could be to a dear friend or as a special thank you prayer to the Lord for all He has done.

She is colored with my Copic markers (E000, E00, R20, E41, E50, W00, W0) & I've used 3 Bearly Mine Designs papers. The vintage buttons are tied with embroidery floss DMC #963 & the sweet little flowers are from my stash. Pink baby pom pom trim graces the top of the little buttons.

I've used lovely 'rose petal' seam binding from Wild Orchid Crafts to tie the bow & added little die cut corners for added dimension. The little frame charm is resting on top of a piece of antique lace holding a little Crafty Secrets birdie image inside. Can you see the little birdie? LOL It's super tiny. I think there's nothing sweeter than adding little birdies to a project. I've also added a tiny little floss bow.

Challenges I'm entering:
Bearly Mine Challenges: #20 use 3 backing papers
Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Sparkle & Bling
Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blog: #23 Anything Goes
The Beary Scrap: #35 Free for (F)all
Paper Sundaes: #89 Lots of Layers
Fussy & Fancy Friday: Try something New (first time using a framed pic & distressing a doily)
Stampin' for the Weekend: #17 What a Cutie!!! (use a cute image)

Thanks so much for visiting with me today & I hope to be creating more soon. On a side note: I injured my knee about a month ago & it's taking forever & a day to heal so I haven't been able to jump around in my craft room which is really my dining room LOL ( I can really "jump"....LOL). So I hope to be crafting more since Christmas is drawing near. OMGosh.........did I just say that? LOL (I'll go sit in the corner now.....LOL) So until next blessed!

Huggies & Sweet Blessings ~♥♥♥~

Your card is just stunning Sharron. Really beautiful. I love how girly and sparkly it feels. I love how you cut her out and set her to the side. Gorgeous work!
