Well, you know what they say about the best laid plans don'tcha? These past few days sure didn't go how I thought they would. Nothing major or upsetting, Grandma is still doing well and so is my mom, it just seems that circumstances are conspiring against me having a lot of free time at the moment. I've been working a lot which makes for great paychecks, which in turn allow me to keep getting new stamps that I love. Now the trick is finding time to actually use them, LOL!
As seems to be my pattern lately, this card was a couple days in the works. You wouldn't think so, as simple as it turned out, but I either have time to color or create lately not both together. I used the first of three new Gorjuss Girls that I got recently and this one is called, The Black Star. I paired her up with some older Basic Gray papers from my scrap bag and a sentiment that I thought suited her look. Something about this little gal just feels like she could use a good hug at the moment. For some reason her dress is looking a bit more blue than in real life where I swear it is a better match to that aqua color behind her... weird.
Anywho, time for me to sign off and get ready for another day of work.
