TODAY'S Featured Set:
______________________________________________________________

Today, the Diva's are previewing a GORGEOUS new sentiment set called "Words Cannot Express".


I started out on this card using Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday sketch. I just love this sketch, and even took the colors from her sketch image, lol! 
This is one of my favorite sentiments from the new stamp set. Have you heard the other version of this sentiment? "I love you from the bottom of my butt! I'd say the "bottom of my heart" but my butt is bigger!" BWAHAHAHA! How true, how true!
The stick pin that I stuck through the bow is from Pizzazz Aplenty. It was originally a regular "pearl" color, but I wanted it to match those champagne pearls so colored it with a Copic marker, I'd say it worked out pretty well, lol!

Your next stop on the hop is the fabulous TOSH! So...hop along and BE INSPIRED!:)
