Lil' Bit of Spring....

My mood this week has been really bad.......my van is going to the shop tomorrow for further repairs, Cortney got her genetic test results. They showed nothing. I know that should be a good thing, but I've waited for a diagnosis for almost 14 years! And nada, nothing. So I guess my girl will continue to be a mystery. A tough pill to swallow sometimes. On top of that, I have a co-worker at my job, making life difficult for me......and I simply feel like I need to rewind my life back to the glorious weekend I left behind. Since I can't do that, I am going to go in my craft room and play. Get lost in my papers, embellishments, and photos. That is truly my happy place. And boy, could I use a bit of happy right now! So here is a happy card!



I have a collection of the High Hopes stamps and really do love these sweet images. They are such fun to color! I used Copics and some glitter for the flowers. For the life of me, I can't remember who the paper is by.....It was in a large 12 x 12 pad I had in a drawer. (yea, like THAT helps you! LOL) I added dew drops to the centers of the buttons for an interesting look.

Off to my happy place upstairs......tomorrow is a new day. Let's hope it is a better one...... : )

I'm sorry you're having a rough time this week. Just remember (in Spanish) "no hay mal que dure 100 aƱos." Your card is quite cheerful and your blending is fantastic. Looks like watercoloring. Sending you big hugs.
