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!

Seize the Sketch # 21

Seize the Sketch  has a new sketch must go check it out!
My BFF has this MFT stamp called Big Birthday Wishes
and I thought she would be a perfect image
for my soon to be teenage granddaughter Ellie!
Seriously, she is going to be thirteen, but going on 17!
And she will love this sentiment, because sometimes it is "all about Ellie"..
we try to keep her humble, especially "Papa", he works hard on that girl to be humble!
I colored her with the inktense pencils and because I really like this sentiment,
 I stamped it then cut each word so it would fit on the side without covering up her perfect leggings!  Oh if only my legs looked like that!!
And you know we will be celebrating that girl because she brings such joy and laughter to our lives!

Thanks for taking a look friends...go out and make it a great day!
Heart Hugs,
