It's Never Too Late......

I found a wonderful little book during my trip last week to North Carolina. It's called "It's Never Too Late" by Patrick Lindsay. I am usually not one for motivational and inspirational stuff. I find it a little cheesy. But I did like this little book. So I thought I would share maybe one entry with you now and then. If you find it too cheesy :) scroll on down and see my card for today!

It's Never Too Late

to fly a kite

Embrace the freedom.
Find the child in you.
Ride the wind.
Abandon yourself to its rhythms.
Feel the wonderful lightness.
And the underlying power.

I bought these Scrapbook Stitches from Making Memories a long time ago. I loved the bright colors and thought I would embroider with them on cards. Today I opened them for the first time! Obviously haven't stitched with them yet!

Flowers are watercolored using pads and reinkers and an aqua brush. Each panel is raised on dimensionals. I used my Rolodex punch for the top.
Stamps: Sentiment by Inkadinkadoo, Flowers by Hero Arts
Paper: GP White, Lovely Lilac, Pink Passion, Stamping Station DP
Ink: Lovely Lilac, Marigold Morning, Pink Passion, Certainly Celery, Green Galore, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Gray (thank you Betty!)
Accessories: pearl gem brads (thank you Jessie!), ticket corner punch, Rolodex punch, and my unloved embellishment: Watercolor Brite Scrapbook Stitches by Making Memories
Techniques: watercolor
Thanks for stopping by to fly a kite with me!

I like the rolodex punch - better than the SU one actually. Are they available at office supply stores? Great card and a great post!

(And, I loved the kite picture)
