A beam of sunlight from God

     Wow!  Can you believe it's Thursday already?  This week has flown by and I don't feel like I've gotten a thing done.  I am feeling much better so hopefully I can get back on track.
     Our amazing Pat has picked a theme of "Flowers" for us this week at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge.  I chose to use this adorable "Heidi" image.  She's colored in Copics.  I used a scrap of Prima flower trim across the middle and some more Prima e-line flowers to go along with all the daisies in her apron and hair.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC.  My team mate Carla has gotten me hooked on Paulette's  wonderful and witty little words.  :-)
     You can find "Heidi" in Mo's old store here and lots of other stamps in the new store.  Hope you'll come and play along with us this week.  Mo's giving away a $5.00 gift certificate for every twenty five entries.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Aud Sentiments--spring or summer colors
Use It Tuesdays--anything goes (Prima flowers and trim)
Karen's Doodles--something spring

     Be blessed!

  1. Now see, that's some cool stitching. It must be a much nicer machine than mine, but I really, really like that and the folded flowers to create the 'fringe or border' that's a totally groovy idea!!
    I knew my senses would wake up once I hopped over here. :D
    Have a great one and I'm so glad you're feeling better.

  2. She is adorable. I love the way you colored her. The flowers are just icing on the cake. Great job Tracy.

  3. Hi Tracy, well the title caught my attention for sure, and now the card has done likewise :) I love the image and i have learnt something today as well as I didn't know Mo had to shops? thats maybe why I can't find images that I see and want...I mean need..oops!
    Love your seam edge stitch and all the detail.
    Hugs Mau xx
