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!

Getting more Sketchy!

I just had to try the doodling technique again that was shown by Ashley on Make it Monday.  They ask for only one card be entered, so this is just for the stash and for practice.
I used a Wildflower Garden stamp and added a lot more sketchy lines to the solid color flower and leaves.
The sentiment is from Keep it Simple: Get well Wishes which I selectively inked and stamped one word on a line. 
Linda and I are having fun in the "Studio"!!  She is here for a week to help me celebrate my birthday...it does last for a week, right? Especially since this is a BIG one for me, my "older friend" already reached this milestone!  tee hee!!

  6. Both of the doodling cards are pretty. It's great your friend Lin is back for your birthday. Many, many best wishes for the big day! And yes, birthdays should last AT LEAST a week, if not more.
