Opus Gluei Challenge #118 Thanks for being You

The lovely Rosemary over at Opus Gluei has set the challenge this time, anything that the quote "Thanks for being you" inspires.

Flowers are so often given as a thank you gift so I made a card using the fabulous Paper Artsy stamps Hot Picks 1004 and their set of steampunk moth stamps.
I used the wrinkle free technique using Inkadinks from the bright range and oversprayed with a silver shimmer spray for the flower, stem and leaves, and Cosmic Shimmer watercolour paints for the moth.




It is amazing just how many pieces of paper can be filled when you spend the time writing down everything you are thankful for.
If your spirit is flagging a bit right now consider giving it a try, it gives you such a boost when you see those pages filling up and gets you in a much better frame of mind.
After the usual suspects of family and friends, my next thankful for thing is electricity.

Happy creating under your electric lights ;-)

Lovely card Gini, I'm a big fan of Steampunk style.
Might just take you up on your thankful suggestion, with the hustle and bustle of general life it's easy to forget just how lucky we are.

Hey Gini, thanks for being you! That steampunk moth is wonderful!

Oh, you are too kind! I am thankful for the dear ladies I have met on the 'Net, there are so many wonderful, creative and kind crafters out there just LIKE YOU! But there is only one Gini, and she's marvelous. You're very inspirational and I admire that you get the sprays to work so prettily. I end up wearing more than goes on the paper, I am spray challenged. But kudos to you, my dear friend, for your creativity! This is grand!
