I WISH FOR YOU {Path of Positivity}

This month our theme for Challenge #12 at Path of Positivity is 
THOUGHTFULNESS.  

Just a small act of kindness e.g. smiling when walking past a stranger or just opening a door for an elderly person, may make that person's day the best ever.

I used this beautiful DAHLIA from PICKLED POTPOURRI who is one of our sponsors this week. You can purchase the DAHLIA image here.   The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC


The design papers and bling are from my stash.  I cropped one of the main image's leaves in Phootoshop and printed it a few times to use as embellishments.   The image and leaves have been coloured with H2O water colour pencils and the sentiment with dry chalks.  




The sponsors and prizes for this challenge are:  
  • Ten digital images from Creative Bug Digitals for the person out of the top seven who receives the most votes during voting week.
  • Three digital images from Ike's World for the post or project that the DT deems most inspiring of the bunch.
  • $7 gift certificate from Pickled Potpourri Designs, our guest sponsors this month, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all eligible entrants.
  • One digital designer paper from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles for one lucky voter who leaves a comment.
  • One digital sentiment for every single person who enters the challenge from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles as well. 

Mandy, from http://amandacruxton.blogspot.com is our GDT for the month.  As you know, Mandy has been the recipient of two Most Inspiring awards recently and she is a very talented lady with her cards as well.   I am so happy she was able to join us this month.

Hope you will play along this month, so come on link your THOUGHTFUL creations to Path of Positivity Challenge No.11. Can't wait to see your creations.  
   
Once again I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:
Thank you to all my wonderful Followers old and new.  Your visits here and the love you leave behind are truly treasured - thanks so much.  

Creative Hugs

  81. Hey Desíre,

    I'm here with my DT hat on today and funny that this is the card I'd be commenting on so I'm actually going to pull double duty while I'm here.

    First off, I just adore the way you have framed the Dahlias with those gemstones. It looks so cool. Thanks so much for entering your card into the Scribbles Designs Challenge this month. Good luck in the draw.

    Now for my second duty, once again you have done our team proud with your incredibly thoughtful card. I especially love the way you repeat the leaf all over the place. Brilliant idea. Additionally, thanks for providing ideas to help get people thinking about ways they can be more thoughtful in their lives. Thanks for coming through for me yet again! I'm so lucky to have you on the Path of Positivity team.

    Hugs,
    Lisa
