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.
"Remember a kite flies against the wind." -- Anonymous

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.
