Friends From the Start

Lately, I have been blessed by a certain sweet, dear friend. Paula Voris is one of the most wonderful people I know and has been a constant encourager to me. And now, as a thank you to her, she's going to get this wall-hanging thingamajig from me.

I started this project last night with a blank, white 8x10 canvas and painted it yellow. Five yo-yos, four buttons, three ribbon stems, one rub-on and a painted chipboard bird later (notice it's my yeebird?), it was finished. A thank you note is written on the back.

*Excited to deliver it to Paula today!*

Crafty Creations is asking for How Does Your Garden Grow? inspired projects this week. Think I'll link this one!
