Hang in There...

Hang in there, sweet friends!  Hope everyone is adjusting to the new normal!  I have gotten over my anxiety of going grocery shopping....I don't go in the store anymore!  I have never been a fan of the pick up option...but I figure chances are the store does not have my first choice anyways...so just give me what you have! My son is turning into a huge fan....he just clicks to his hearts content on the shopping app without having to leave the house!  This is our new normal!  Hope you are all doing well! I created my card based on the sketch challenge at Sunday Stamps-

My stamp is from a retired set by Close To My Heart, Growing Through It.  I found the sentiment fitting for the current times!  I stamped my image in Intense Black ink and then added color with Prismacolor pencils.  My pencils were blended with Gamsol.  I fussy cut the image and applied with 3-D foam tape.  Super simple and great for a little pick me up!

  5. What a BEAUTIFUL card Allisa! Love your choice of color ... very rich & eye catching! I'm not a fan of the pick up option either so we go once a week (masks at the ready) to get what we need then right back home to sanitize! Thanks so much for joining in the fun at our Dies R Us challenge! Good Luck and we hope you’ll come back often.
