One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Simple Sunflower....love that stamp!

I saw the Retro Sketches from a few weeks ago and decided to pull out my sunflower stamp and get busy...I basically followed the sketch, but did turn it on its side and reversed a few things too...and I had a wonderful assortment of colors for the sunflowers...I was thinking more along the lines of the painted daisies!!  Here are the four cards I made...it is time to be sending some cards to my aunts, so I think these will be the ones that will be mailed to them.  I saw one aunt this last weekend at a family reunion...she is 93...what a doll...just the cutest little old Italian lady in her "mumu" dress!!  I love her!



And my sweet little Auntie Elvera!
