Sunday's Little Blessings

Hello Friends,

I hope you are having a lovely weekend and were not in the path of the recent tornado in Illinois.

As promised, I will be giving you another new image today, plus some fresh sentiments I created for Fathers Day. I won't give you all of them today because there are a lot. I am getting ready for a vendor event on June 13, a week before Fathers Day, so I thought it was a good plan to have some cards to sell for that occasion. So... I will be posting the new sentiments randomly as I complete cards that use them. If you don't want to miss any posts you can follow by e-mail using the gadget on my left sidebar.

My inspiration for this card/box came from the color challenge at The Outlawz. The colours are red and green and the twist is to make it an easel card.

 This is my new image, coloured with my new Prima Water Colour pencils. I touched it up a bit with my Tombow markers to get the colours more vibrant.
Here is the front of the easel card. I recycled my flourish from an empty Kleenex box.
I also made a button from the same Kleenex box, to hold my easel card up and here is the inside sentiment.
I dry and heat embossed the handle for my drawer before attaching it with brads. The drawer can hold sweets, a gift card and any other small gift.

Here are a couple of other views.

And here is your image and the sentiment set I have used in this design.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs & smiles,
Teresa
