I'm a couple of days late with this post for obvious reasons. I was supposed to join the Avocado Arts Crew Too gals on Tuesday with a post using the May release, Thoughts and Smiles. Last night, I was in the mood to make an encouragement card infused with humour. My husband thought I was being morbid but the lady bug isn't dead (it's still smiling)! It just flipped over and the sentiment is encouraging it to get back up on its feet. LOL
The leaves, tag, lady bug and polka dot border are from Thoughts and Smiles. The jar is from the January release, Sweet Treat Sweetie. The sentiment and rainbow anchor are from Avocado Style Borders and Sentiments. The tag is attached to the jar with burlap string and the jar is popped with foam tape. This will be one of my entries for Gallery Idol 2012.
If you'd like to purchase any of the sets I used, just click on the graphics. Avocado Arts would love to see you using their stamps! Remember, there's a publication incentive, too. ;) Don't forget to check out the following posts for amazing inspiration using Thoughts and Smiles!
