Penny for Your Thoughts

Well, I couldn't help myself....Paulette came out with some new images yesterday at TLC and I just had to purchase them.  I just love sunflowers so I worked on that one first.  I used the Inde Bloom paper and then I have this May Arts ribbon that I found at a local floral shop that had it in several different colors so I have it in the kraft with mint green.  I just love this image and saying and it can be found at TLC, Create.
Now, this morning it was interesting, I had this set of stamps to work with and I looked at the new Mojo sketch and then it came to me...and I went to work.  The paper is from Sweet Shoppe except for the flower which is from Pebbles.  I used the sentiment from Paulette's set Simply Put Thoughts which has four great sentiments.  When I looked at this one, I decided that with the paper I chose it would be perfect to actually dig into my wallet and find a shiny penny to place in the center of my flower.  My husband laughed when he saw my card, and said his thoughts were worth more (I won't tell you my response.)

Beautiful cards! I love the penny in the middle of the flower in your first card and the colors in your second card are stunning.

Lisa Lynn, you made two lovely cards! I, of course, really appreciate the center of your flower on the first one! And I know what I would have said to my hubby if he said what yours did! LOL! Love the colors and beautiful ribbon on the second! Great use of Paulette's images! :^)
Hugs,
Penny

Lovely job with this TLC image, Lisa. The MME papers are perfect with the bird image and scripture.
