Need some hugs?

Hi there!

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.

Hey Amy, did you think you lost me? My father passed on Mother's day. I was with him for his last three weeks, first in ICU on life support, then in a Hospice home, then the last five days here at home. I was alone with him for his last breath. So, yes, I need hugs.

Amy, I am glad to read everyone is doing ok in your family. I don't know what it is exactly, but I've been noticing that a lot of bloggers and You tubers that used to post everyday just haven't been able to do so.... It has been a weird year so far, so maybe it is just that way for all of us. As you can see however, we are all here and we all love seeing what you do get a chance to make, so don't stress. lol.... This card is adorable and she truly does look like a hug is needed. Love the papers you have used. Very sweet card my friend. Stay well and have a great rest of your weekend. Hugs Lisa
