Encouragement with an Oldie but Goodie

Hello there!  I'm back with another card for the next Lawnscaping Challenge: Dust 'em Off.  I recently adopted this cute little set...

And as you all know I love paper piecing!  Another fun tidbit (because I couldn't find the right shade of yellow twine) was to take Lawn Trimmings in natural and color it up with copics.  I literally just zipped the hemp cord using the chisel side of the copic marker, and within seconds had the perfect shade I needed!  Now I need to buy more natural colored Lawn Trimmings!  I played around and also colored a rainbow one...

             SWEET RIGHT?!

I'm gonna have to find a project to put that on soon!
Ok back to my card using this week's Freshly Made Sketches...

Ta da...

Lawn Fawn Make Lemonade, Lawn Trimmings, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Studio Calico Snippets Paper Pad, copics

Sometimes my patients don't need a get well card, but more of an encouragement card...I thought something like this would be perfect.

That's it for me!   I hope you're all having a fabulous week!  Mahalo for stopping by!!!
