A Big Thank You

Hi Guys!
Well  some news first: the girls at Jellypark have invited me to be their Guest Designer this month so you can guess what I did; I jumped at the chance! 
And to start the month off with a bang we're having a blog hop showcasing Claire's fundraising stamps. You should have arrived here from Diane's  blog. 
As you probably know, Claire is known for her super cute and quirky characters both children and animals and recently she has started a new line dedicated to raising funds for charity. 
So what that means is that 100% of the proceeds from the sales of these selected stamps goes to the
So today I am featuring her fundraising stamp: "Girl with Thank You bunting"
You may recognize the image from a couple of weeks ago when I colored it but hadn't made it into a card yet. So here's the finished product!

Recipe:
Image: jellypark
Colors: CarbOthello Pastel Pencils on Strathmore Pastel Paper

(I really wish the glittermist would show up on camera. Its really cool, it lays a fine glitter without it being "in your face bling", just soft and pretty. Love it!

I hope you like this cheerful project!
And now its time to see what lovely  Georgia   has created for you!
Thanks so much for visiting with me. :)

OMG I see why they picked you as a GDT! your coloring is so freakin' Awesome! Love how you did the paper behind your image! That little girl is cute too, and you colored her so well! GREAT job you! You are so right about the glimmer mists. They look wonderful in RL but the camera just doesn't pick it up too well. I bet this card is even more beautiful in RL!!
Peace,
Kristy
