Clear Dollar Stamps "Everyday Jargon" Thinking of You Card

One of the nice things about being retired is that I usually have more time in the day to think about friends and family and the things they ask me to pray for. Whether I'm with friends, driving, or alone on our farm, I like to recognize God's presence with me and feel that I can instantly take my thoughts and concerns to Him in prayer.  Thinking of You cards are my way of letting others know this.

This card was made with the new June release stamp image from Clear Dollar Stamps. It's called Everyday Jargon because the jars have a variety of contents and the sentiments are some we could use every day. It comes colored, in outlines for you to color, and with designer papers.

I used the June sketch from Kimbee's Creations.

On my card I cut out one flower from a duplicate of just the three flowers and pop dotted it over the white flower in the main image. I also cut two circles out of petals of one of my flower embellishments, colored them with the Copic marker and pop dotted them over the center of my floral embellishments.
