You are always on my mind


Sweeping and free, this set simply named Azalea is begging to be colored with reckless abandon. It could inspire an outrageous upsurge in your use of pink markers, colored pencils, and paint! Use the lush blooms of these images to let a friend know how much she is missed, or to say thanks to another who is just plain amazing! This 4" by 6" set was illustrated by hand with a whole lotta love by Marcella Hawley. 

Now you know this stamp was begging for a white canvas!  I have stamped, colored and cut out these gorgeous blooms today. A decorative Spellbinders frame and then for the sentiment and some fun I cut a round hole in the base, then added the sentiment on a round punch and popped up. I adore how this turned out. Not to mention the white sheer ribbon for a little elegance! The sentiments in this set are darling and wonderful for your girlfriends.
