Bee Happy

Hi there!

DU2DS has a wonderful challenge this week. The theme is to use gingham and stitches, sponsored by Post Pals. Post Pals feature children with life threatening or long term illnesses. Their goal is to put a smile on these children's face and give them the confidence to stay strong. To help brighten a child's life, all we need to do is send a card. I chose Samara M. I hope when she receives this card, it will bring a big smile on her face.

Because this is such a special challenge and event, I decided to use one of MY OWN drawings, a flower, can't go wrong with that, right? Everyone likes flowers, especially girls. :) This is considered a digi image because I already went through the process of converting it. :) I followed the fabulous sketch from Sketch Saturday. This also qualifies for A Spoon Full of Sugar, Buttons. The sentiment is by The Paper Company. I was actually looking for something like "BEEEEEEE Happy" but couldn't find any. So "Bee Happy" it was then. It didn't darn on me until after I finished the card that I could've printed it from my computer! Oh well.... I don't have a sewing machine so I drew the "stitches". Patterned paper is by My Mind's Eye, buttons by La Mode, ribbon and all other papers from stash.
