PIP Challenge 1730 July 24 - Bugaboo Stamps

Normally I don't get too excited about Mondays, outside of the fact it's time for a new PIP challenge. However, the weather we have been having (read that as hot and humid) makes me thankful for the air conditioned workplace (no AC at home.) Speaking of thankful, I would like to say thanks to Bugaboo Stamps for supplying the lovely image I worked with. It's called Blocks - Hummingbird and can be found by clicking the link.

In May, some things happened that reinforced how great the human spirit can be when someone is down and struggling. With those people in mind, I created my card. The image was printed and colored with Copics, except the hummingbird. He was colored with some fabulous Spectrum Noir glitter markers. Mounted this to a black panel and all mounted onto an almost goldenrod color card blank. Sentiment is from the defunct Angel Company. Here is the finished product:

I look forward to seeing your entries in the PIP challenge this week and would love for you to check out Bugaboo Stamps offerings (hint, her Christmas in July sale goes till July 31st - 50% off digitals!)

Parting thought:
         None of us got to where we are alone. Whether the assistance we received was obvious or subtle, acknowledging someone's help is a big part of understanding the importance of saying thank you.      Harvey Mackay
