Strength and Dignity*

Good morning! The week started off much better than last week! It was a good day yesterday at work. I got a lot accomplished. I did the gym in the morning and at lunch.. so I got my time in and it felt good! Later in the afternoon I got a call from the high school that my son needed to come home because he has caught the stomach bug going around there. Oh fun! He did eat tonight though and seems to be doing okay.

Then, when I came home I got busy on the card I was working on and finished that! So overall, it was a really good day. Now I need to start coloring the next image. I don't think I'm going to get done all I want to get done this month. I'm so slow LOL  Coloring is slow, creating is slow! I'm just slow! There is no other way to say it.

Here is my share for today:

I love A Day For Daisies images. She is just so delicate. I used Copic Markers to color this. I used Kraft paper for the base. This card was cut using the Silhouette Cameo. I added a bit of lace and put some twine over it. There is a bit of pearls added to the scripture that I arranged and printed. I added some pearls to the inside to finish it off.

This is such a sweet image and you have added just the right amount of detail- keeping it simple and not overly fussy- the delicate colours with the splash of blue works really well - thanks for playing along at Let's Craft and Create.Good luck.
