Reason to Smile

I've had zero mojo lately, spending my time just staring at my desk and not really having any desire to do anything. I think part of my problem is that it's just about the end of the school year and for me that means tons of projects to do around the house since I have a month off. We're going to be ripping out the carpet and installing tile flooring so my house is in shambles right now as I start to prepare for that....I think the anxiety from having stuff shoved here and there and knowing I have to move this and that is messing with my head big time!

To force myself to work on this funk I decided to play along with current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I've got a huge pile of various images that I colored during the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge and need to make into cards so I grabbed one of those images for my card.

I used some retired SU DSP for the top half of my card and the card base is Flirty Flamingo. I sponged the edges of the DSP with Sahara Sand because the stark white edges bother me LOL I die cut an oval out of Sahara Sand, popped the image up on it and then heat embossed the sentiment in white.

Thanks for stopping by!
