Feel Better Soon

I’m in the middle of one of those spells where I just feel uninspired. For this card, however, I saw a little spark come back just in time for the Jen Martakis Designs Rain Drops DigiKit to go live 🙂

Life lately has been a little bit of everything. I just finished reading this book called The Glass Castle: A Memoir by Jeannette Walls for my book club. What an amazing story. I can’t believe the things she and her siblings had to overcome like their struggle through poverty and being raised by two selfish parents. It was inspiring and made me think twice about the things I have, and the things I want in life. I often have a difficult time finishing books that I actually read, but this one was easy.

I think I’m ready for a short spring break though. Maybe not a vacation, just some time off so I can do things around the house. It’s weird but some of my best days off are days when I stay home and get things done around the house 🙂

Ok, in this card I again tried to use some items I’ve had in my stash. Update: Sorry guys, I totally spaced out and forgot to list the supplies used. I started with a base of craft card stock. I embossed the swiss dots using the Cuttlebug A2 Border Just My Type. I can’t remember what ribbon I used, but it’s a pale green with a pink stitch along the sides. The white lace border was punched using a Fiskars border punch called Lacy Days. “Love” was stamped using a Brilliance pigment ink pad in Graphite Black and an acrylic stamp from Hampton Arts Studio G line. The coloring was done using Prismacolors and Gamsol. The flower card stock sticker is from SEI’s Winnie’s Walls line and adhered to a piece of Stampin’ Up So Saffron card stock.
