Life

Today I woke up (LATE, uh) to a rainy, dreary day and no energy to do anything. . .especially stamp. Well, I shouldn't say "energy", but motivation. I just couldn't collect my thoughts and be creative, so I started to do my blog reading that I seldom have time to do anymore. I was reading Lauren's post today (the whole thing, Lauren!) and it really pumped me up and gave me this burst of energy and motivation that I so needed! If you're looking for some inspiration today, both in LIFE and in creativity, be sure and read Lauren's post today! It's her 30th Birthday. . .HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LAUREN!. . .and she not only has her Saturday Sketch, but she goes through what she's learned in 30 years and what she appreciates about those years. Thanks, Lauren, for jump-starting my day and helping me to smell the fresh air and appreciate the moment! This card is totally inspired by you. . .the butterfly punch (that you made me buy LOL), the bright, happy colors, the quote and, of course, the sketch. Enjoy YOUR day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Full of Life (SU); Paper- white (Georgia-Pacific), Blossoms & Butterflies Stack (DCWV), Summer Sunrise (Papertrey Ink); Ink- Summer Sunrise (Papertrey Ink); Accessories- Chocolate Chip marker, paper piercer, scallop punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, Punches Plus Classy Brass Template (SU), Royal Butterfly punch (Martha Stewart), Summer Sunrise satin ribbon (Papertrey Ink)

not at all shabby for someone who was lacking inspiration. :-) words are so powerful, aren't they? that amazes me...that you can string words together and they transform into units of energy.
