Crafting is fantastic therapy :)





Today has been kinda stressful and upsetting for various reasons but I am not going to go on about it, I am sure things will be better tomorrow, have to be positive. I had to make a card to cheer myself up and this is the result. I used bright and colourful papers, the bird is a digital image, the bicycle a sticker and the sentiment is computer generated. I absolutely loved this sketch but had to flip it to be able to include the tree, I hope my submission still counts :). I might just frame this card in a box frame and leave it for sale in the shop in Canberra, if I do frame it will share a photo later on.

Anyway, I am off to bed now, take care everyone and I look forward to reading your comments :)

The challenges I have included-
Young crafters unite-No colouring allowed
Retro sketches-#8
Inspire me fridays-Anything goes

Oh wow this is just stunning. I can see why you had to create this cheerful card. Just keep that positiveness going.
It would be great if you could stop by Doing Life and take part in our DS4J blog hop.
