Hi friends! I got a little much-needed recharge time during naptime this morning and this card is the result. Today's SC428 sketch challenge totally made me think of the SU! Label Framelits and piercing templates I just came across when I was sorting through a few totes on my bookshelf. And this Postale paper pad from 7 Gypsies has been calling my name for a while.
I picked the Psalm 51:10 Plain Jane, because this was a verse my heart needed today. The twins have been absolute terrors the past few days. They're whining and hitting and screaming and climbing and kicking each other and into EVERYTHING and they both want to be held all the time, but NOT together and the minute I set one down to pick up the other one, the whining begins again and today I found myself just lying on the floor crying wising I could be anywhere but here. Some days are just pure misery and this has been one of those. So when I miraculously got them to sleep at the same time, I went looking for a scripture stamp that would renew my soul and give me something positive to focus on during my stamp time. Hopefully there was enough renewal to make it through the rest of the day. I'm going to attempt to take them out shopping, since they're usually much better away from the house than they are at home.
Not too much to explain about the card. The sentiment is stamped directly onto the pattern paper in Midnight Muse and I added some piercing around the edges and distressed everything with a bit of Vintage Photo ink. The flower is from Mitchaels and I added a bit of burlap behind it, then accented with some airmail divine twine and red and blue rhinestone hearts.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
