  4. Your sentiment rings so true and the designers in this hop are helping to help us be just that - THANK YOU! Like that you used the pencils; it reminded me to use my pencils. I tend to you ink or water colors. I'm going to use one of the previous Paint-A-Flower stamps and use my pencils to color it! Wish me luck and thanks for the inspiration.
