Thinking of You


I hope all of you are having a restful Sunday, enjoying whatever you're doing.  I have been very low key this weekend, only making a venture out to the grocery store, and only because I HAD to.  Needless to say, my creative mojo has been a bit MIA, but here is what I made for Ben's parents.

With some help and support from a new, special someone in my life, I was able to put everything aside to make this card.  I'm hoping they will find it helpful, and somewhat comforting in their time of loss and grief.  I love this card, and I love that it will go to them.  Below are a few challenges that I've included.

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #122 - Sketch (my loose interpretation)
Crazy 4 Challenges #92 - Floss or String
Stamp Something - Something with Pretty Papers
Creative Inspirations #62 - Stitching (real, faux, etc.)

I'm going to try to put together another masculine birthday card for a co-worker.  I'm not sure it will go as planned, but at least I'm going to do something else that's crafty.  I think it will be good to do that.

I got here from your Stamp Something entry. I love your card. I did browse a bit and you have a lot of talent. Love your 12 step motto. Looks like we started blogging the same time.

A beautiful card, Steph. I think I'm a bit like you (only without your talent!) in that my craft brings me peace.

Just gorgeous Steph! find comfort in your scrap space if that works for you, I know it has often helped me - sometimes even if I didn't feel like going in there, I've felt better for it in the end. Hugs,
Shanna :)
