FSC Thank You!

This month we say THANK YOU!

We would love you to join in our fun at FSC with a piece that says thank you, or gratitude.
It can be about reflecting on the past year and what we are grateful for moving forward, it can be about appreciating what we have to be grateful for, or a simple thank you!

I chose a simple Thank You.

Thank you FSC for taking me on many years ago and teaching me so much, and giving me the opportunity to meet so many amazing people...
thank you, too, for stopping by and taking the time to see what I am up to and leaving so many super kind and encouraging words...
and thank you to my friends who give me a 'kick-up-the-...' occasionally when I need it and help me to move forward when I sometimes feel stuck.
Gee, where would we be without friends!

I am still trying to find my way with what I learned at a Finnabair class.
This piece started out as a tag...then turned into a canvas...and ended up as a large card.  I rescued the flowers part, added some ribbon and material, a few splats and some stamping.
I shabbied it up a little with distressing and gesso and I am really pleased with how it turned out.

The image is a new one that I have from Deep Red.  No matter how many times I had mucked this up I was determined to use that stamp!  She is just gorgeous!!!

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of their creativity,
 be inspired, and maybe join in our fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 as well.

Stamping must be the focal point on your project!
