Today Linda challenged us to use a color, theme, sentiment, or words that begin with the first letter in our username. How fun!! Since my user name is Glowbug, I chose the color gold and the theme of glowing or goodbye for g.
My username Glowbug came from a nickname I got from my dear hubby: Bugs and the glowing smile I try to put on people's faces with the cards I make for them.
The background is a stamp that was stamped in versa mark and then Embossed in gold and colored.

Another beautiful card from you Chris. Love the richness of the gold. I had to smile when I read that you grew up on a dairy farm. Not too many people know what the word Holstein represents. Thanks for adding this beautiful card in the gallery today. Yes, I favored it too!

Oh my gosh, you have so many great elements to this beauty..... The sentiment is wonderful, now I am going to be on the lookout for this stamp, for sure..... I love the die cuts that you have used to frame your sentiment and then the stitching around the borders really tie it together... Thanks for sharing....

What a sweet husband you have! This is certainly a glowing card in all of its gold glory!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
