Again I'm not an official part of the MFP Blog Hop today, but I'm glad you stopped by.  I have to admit that I struggled a bit with today's set, Buddha.  I think I've mentioned before that Oriental design is not my strong point, so I dove in with some trepidation.  I've been making several easel cards this week and thought I might be able to do something for this set in an easel card.  When I read the sentiments included, I focused on the one about the sun and the moon -- and went hunting on the internet for an image of both the sun and the moon.  I was successful at Deviant Art. Here's my card:


Be sure to check out the official Blog Hop and try to comment as much as you can so that you may perhaps win a free stamp set.
