Sometimes we all need a little something to help us perk up, and the combo of Cosmo Cricket's Upcycle papers and this stamp by My Favorite Things is perfect for such a time! Isn't this a cheery card?
I think perhaps I was creating with the message I needed to hear when I made this card. I don't share a lot of personal stuff on this blog (since it's focus is the store) but I've had a rough week... I've been hit with the annual end-of-the-school year-cold (SO stuffed up!), I got laid off (no, the store is still here! My other job... the one that provided steady income for the past 9 years...), and a dear family member is sick in the hospital. Sigh. I'm so grateful for friends who have been there for me with hugs, and Starbucks and time to hang out and CREATE with me or just sit and watch movies with me! This card is going to go off to another friend who has been having a rough time lately, too... hope it brightens her day!
Here's a close up of the sentiment and embellishments- I love the Twinery twine and the cute 'doilies and butterflies' which are also from Cosmo Cricket! The little flower sequins are from Hero Arts, they've been in my stash for a while but they were fun to add!
I've used a sketch from Deconstructing Jen, which was perfect for my image & paper choices! Love it when that happens :)
