Etsy Inspired #116--11.27.10

  Hey all!! Happy Saturday! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! This year I gave God the glory for blessing me with a wonderful husband, a great family and his provision as my husband looks for a new job. I will choose to be joyful and give God praise for what I have and what is to come for us according to his plan. 
  This week's shop is Heartsong Fine Art. This intent of this week's shop is to offer you with spiritual art that can reconnect you with well being. Here's a note from Laura Koniver, the artist,

Here's some more examples to inspire you.

I love the precious little birds, guinea pigs and whimsical creations found in this shop! I feel happy looking at this art. Here's the piece that I was inspired by. I loved the simple lines, yet romantic feel of it.

Here's what I came up with. I wanted to stick with the simplicity, so I stitched the lettering and a simple border.

I added a little bling to give it a soft, feminine look.
