Whimsy Inspiration "Encouragement."


Happy Sunday!  The weather has finally improved here (well, it stopped raining anyway!) and I'm feeling pretty good!  Hope you are enjoying your day wherever you are! Today I have a card I made for my friend's daughter.  She recently applied to a summer program for gifted children.  It required application, essay, interview, etc, and she's only eleven!  Well, she's waiting to find out and so I thought this card would be perfect for her whether she wins the spot or not.  The sentiment is so fitting!  It's encouraging without congratulating OR sympathizing.  And who can resist this sweet turtle called "Hang in There," by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps Digital collection?!?!  I just love the sweet face! He's colored with Copics and accented with Glossy Accents.  The papers are DCWV "Flower Shower," pack.  The sentiment is by Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs for Whimsy's Digital Collection and it's called "Hang in There," Sentiment set.  So thanks for stopping by and checking in!  Please scroll through the Whimsy Inspirations Blog to see more exciting images from Whimsy!
