FTHS September Blog Hop

Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps blog hop.
We have a Random Image Theme this month.
Our designers are each showing a project created with an image that was randomly assigned from the store.
The September Blog Hop will be our last for awhile. The team will take a break while Faith gets her treatment. When Faith is fully recovered, we will come back, but we do not know how long it will take.
During this time the blog and shop are put on hold.
If you have arrived from Lyn, you are in the right place, if not why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps blog, so you don’t miss anything.

When I was assigned my image, I wasn't sure how I was going to use it. It comes with a couple of sentiments and can be used so many ways.  A couple of the ladies I work with have had siblings pass away recently. I don't like making sympathy cards, even though I know it is a fact of life. So, as I never really ever have any made ahead of time, I thought I would turn this into a sympathy card.
Here is my project
Paper: My Minds Eye Miss Caroline Fiddlesticks
Color Medium: Copics
Other Supplies: Smooch Glitz Frost, Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large, Lacey Ovals  and Foliage dies, American Crafts twine in brown and sage

Thank you again for your patience and understanding. We all hope that Faith will be recovered soon and the challenges can take place as usual.
For now head over to Ruth and see what she has created.
Thanks for hopping with us today.
