A Simple Gift of a Flower


Today's card is one I made for my good friend Doug - bless his heart! If it wasn't for him and his awesome gift of my air conditioner last year, I would not have made it this summer! Thanking your kindness and generosity every day Doug! :<)

I paper pieced this image - one of Sassy Cheryl's wonderful digital images called "A Simple Gift of a Flower" which can be found at The hat, dress, shoes, socks and flowers are all paper pieced and the face, hands and hair are colored with markers. I love this image - makes me smile!

Go to Cheryl's "Show Me Thursday Fun" on her blog and post a photo of what you are doing this week. Cheryl is giving away two of her beautifully colored pencil illustrations to the two lucky persons chosen - a most awesome gift! You don't want to miss this opportunity - go to and leave your entry for a chance to win!

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I am still playing catch-up in returning your visits! Wishing you a good day today! We have had rain here in this part of WI and cooler, more normal summer temperatures for a few days now and there is more green everywhere! Love it!

Doug sounds like a WONDERFUL friend! Gotta love having that air on these hot days.
What a fabulous card for him and I do love that paper piecing. I agree with Shirley. You definitely make it an art! Beautiful.
Thanks for playing along in the Sassy Cheryl's SMThursday this week.
