Hello, howdy, hey ya'll! I'm here today to share something with you. Something personal, in a way. I have been having a ROUGH time the last month. The first half of June found me in the hospital, then 2 weeks of serious health issues. The second half has been one tragedy for close friends after another, a car dying on us, and SERIOUS BLOG BURNOUT.
I was starting to think I should just quit. And then, I realized what I needed. I needed some craft therapy. I needed to make something NON-design team related and JUST for me. Or rather, for my amazing and long-suffering husband. He's been my rock through all of this. Because, you know what?! I think I LIKE crafting and blogging. And I think that I need to do more of it FOR ME/those I love, not just for teams! Thus...this card was born...
This little stamp set has sat in my stash for quite some time. It was sent to me by a craft friend months ago. It needed to be used! Just like my "just because I want to stamp" skills. I think I like these kiddos...
I think I also kinda like the way my coloring turned out. I used Spectrum Noir markers, and I made sure to be EXTRA CAREFUL. It took me over an hour to color these kids. I didn't care. It was SO therapeutic to not be on a deadline.
Well, there you have it, friends. It was really hard to write this post and get real, but it was also part of the therapeutic process. I hope you enjoy this cute card and like it as much as I do--and as much as I hope my husband does! I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below! :)
I'm entering this card into these fabulous challenges~
That's all for now, friends. Be assured, my monthly onslaught of posts for design teams WILL happen in the VERY near future. I AM excited for all the creations I have coming up, but I am so glad I got to share this "just because" card with you today! THANK YOU so much for all your kind words and support--YOU are all amazing! Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping to you all! :)
