I Simply Adore You

Good morning!  Our Forever Friends challenge this month is "Flowers"...we would like to see you use lots of them!  We have switched things up a bit; we will be having half the team post at the beginning of the month and half the team post midway through.  There's still time to play along, so I hope you will...we have some great prizes!

Digi Stamp Characters will sponsor the prize for the randomly drawn winner.  Click here to see Heather Ellis' images; the lucky winner will get to pick 3 images!

Whoopsi Daisy Digis will sponsor the prize for the Forever Friends Favorite.  Click here to see the images; the lucky winner will get to pick 4 sheets!  Remember: To win in this category, you must use a Forever Friends image.

I couldn't resist Heather's darling image...I did a bit of coloring and paper piecing, then added some tiny pearls to her hat and shoe.  The sketch from Sketch N Stash...I knew I had to try it when I saw it!  I did

flip the image panel to make the image fit; I distressed my papers and added a rosette, felt flower, ribbon, and pearls for embellishments.  The sentiment is from MFT.
