The Struggle is REAL

Sometimes, I look at my ever growing list of "to-do's" and I think to myself..."The STRUGGLE is REAL".  It's about creating balance and harmony but, sometimes it's a comedy of errors.

This card is mainly Paper Smooches.  A combination of the Pip Squeaks and Squeaky Clean stamp sets.  However, the sentiment sets this baby off!  It's from Butterfly Reflections, Ink and it's called #Hashtag.  I also used a circle from a Simon Says Stamp set called Sending & Wishing.

If you look closely, you can see the glossy accents on the washing machine, spray bottle, and vacuum light.

Not gonna lie, the fussy cutting on this card was a labor, but, a labor a LOVE!

Enjoy finding your own balance.  I am playing along with the CAS(E) this Sketch!

Sky is the Limit

It's 2020.  Yep.  For real, 2020.  I totally thought that by now, we would be flying around in our cars like the Jetsons.  Even though we aren't riding in flying cars, we're still doing amazing things.  Think about it, we walk around with tiny computers that we can talk on the phone through.  INSANE!

When it comes to our ingenuity and collective spirit, the sky is the limit!

Paper Smooches may be my favorite stamp company of all time.  So, I was excited to play along with their "Anything Cold" challenge.  I used the unicorn from the Spectrum set, the sweet little bird from My Peeps, and the sentiment is from Hang ups (pretty sure it's retired). 

Coloring these cuties with my Copics was fun.  I enjoy playing with my markers.  I want to improve.  Perhaps a class or two is in order.  I finished off my design with twine and embellishments from my stash.
