Never Lose Heart
Sweet Sketch 89

Digi Stamp Boutique is our sponsor this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  You will want to take a few moments and look around their site as Sally Ann has three pages of new images for February.    I chose this Nurse Grace image as my daughter is an ER Nurse.  She is such a fabulous nurse.   Everyone loves her and she has so much compassion.  Her grandmother was also a nurse so I think she inherited some genes from her.

Anyway, our DT has a wonderful lineup of Digi Stamp Boutique images to show you so stop by SSW and look around.  For our Grand Prize Winner, Digi Stamp Boutique is offering 6 free images of your choice.  I know you will not have any trouble finding 6 images you will like.  The problem will be in narrowing it down to 6 images.

We do hope you will play along this week.  We look forward to seeing what you will create.
Here is Sweet Sketch 89 for you to create with!

My flower and leaves are made from the Cuttlebug Quilling Chrysanthemum Kit. Again I only used two of the three plates to create the flower.  I inked the edges of the leaves to give some dimension along with giving them a twist.  I added stickles to the "I" in SPRING.  But more is not better!  As you can see the "I" isn't really visable. While it was wet I actually move the glitter away from the "I" but it must have migrated back! I also added the tiny butterfly with some added stickles from the SU Butterfly Emboss Plate.   It was the perfect size. 

Oh I almost forgot, I was looking through my stash of treasures that Arlana gave to me...and I couldn't believe that I had two ladybugs in the two colors that matched this card! 
Have you ever seen a pink or teal ladybug?????
Thanks for stopping by!  I love your sweet comments!  Have a great week and try to stay warm!
