You Make Life Sweet


I'm finally getting back to a routine today - Yay! And, determined to get my wits back about me. I swear to my day, I haven't had good walking-around-sense for 2 months. The residual effects of The Plague followed by The Snow Days Parade. I'm one of those who gets out of routine and I don't know whether I'm coming or going. It's kinda pitiful, but it is what it is.

I had some actual FREE TIME Sunday afternoon. I'm not gonna lie, I was lost. Ha! But, I knew it was a primo opportunity, so after watching a little TV by myself and doing a little pleasure reading, I went to my crafty space. Only to find I had abosolutely zero mojo! GAACK! I gave up and did some tidying up and took care of other business. After the "brain break", I played around with markers and stamps and made this little cutie.

It was alot of fun and quite therapeutic, I might add. I used the Paper Smooches Sugar Rush stamp set and my Spectrum Noir markers. The panel was diecut using MFT's Blueprints #13 large stitched rectangle and layered on a base of Simply Chartreuse cardstock from PTI. Quite simple. :)
My inspiration was derived from the Picture Perfect Challenge over at SPARKS.

I'm also playing along with 613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes, 4 Crafty Chicks - Green, Addicted to Stamps - Clean & Simple, and Inkspirational Challenge #77 - Sprinkles!

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!

God Bless,

James 1: 12        (NIV) New International Version
            "Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him."
