Take a Deep Breath

Ever have one of these days? I seem to be having them a little more frequently since baby #3. LOL I made this with the Serenity Now set from My Favorite Things, which isn't available quite yet. I got mine in my Paper Pretties subscription box. These colors are not my normal choice of colors, but I really like how they compliment this set! Great choices, Christie! I added the Pumpkin Pie piece of cardstock as a matte, then I cut all along the edges to make it look like fringe. I ruffled the fringe a bit to give the effect that "stress" was on it's way out. Did it work? I hope so. Hope you're staying warm where you are because we're really trying. Running around picking things up all day helps! LOL Well, thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Serenity Now (My Favorite Things); Paper- Glee Collection (Bo Bunny Press), Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White (SU); Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine), Green Galore, Pink Passion, Brillian Blue, Only Orange (SU); Accessories- blender pen

OOOOH I love this!!! Believe it or not I've been wanting a yoga stamp!! Can't wait for the MFT release! :-) And hang in there - I'm worried about the arrival of baby #2 (and the increase in my own stress level) - and you're handling #3 and still managing to stamp - you are officially my idol. :-)

This card is adorable. I hope that I get my box sometime in the near future. I still have not gotten my december box. I am so sad. TFS it is nice to see what we will be getting eventually. Stacy

Melanie said...

what a great card! I did a doubletake when I saw the image, it looked a litle like one I saw yesterday on rubber romance, but then I looked more closely...I've tried yoga, but can't say I've stuck with it, I'm afraid I'm not zen enough!!

beate said...
