Don't lose Hope... 💗

Dette 'Håp' bildet var egentlig ment for et kort, men siden moren min kom inn på scrapperommet og sa 'Det der kainn du ikkje gi bort!' *hinthint*.. så ble det isteden et bilde som hun kan ha til pynt i stua 😉

DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #237. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema. Jeg er sponsor denne gangen og har både et digistempel og en flott 'Leafy Circle' dies som premie! Velkommen skal du være 💗


“Don't lose hope. When the sun goes down, the stars come out.” 
– author unknown.

The Hope image inside the frame was actually meant to go on a card, but my mum came in while i was crafting and said 'You're not giving that away'... hinting she loved it so much, that I instead made it into a decoration piece for her 😉

It's my DT inspiration for Creative Fingers #237., and as always it is an 'Anything goes theme'. You are more than welcome to join with your creations. I am sponsoring with both a digistamp AND a physical 'Leafy Circle' die as a prize this time! 💗
