Welcome to the 20’s!

Starting the decade with a Mo Manning digi

Happy first Monday of a new decade from my house to yours. I hope everyone had some wonderful holidays, no matter how or what or where you celebrate. I got sidelined the day after Christmas with a wicked cold, so you may have noticed I gave myself a little break from blogging and posting on Instagram.

Now onto today’s regularly scheduled post!

On New Years Eve one of my best girlfriends texted (on our girlfriends group text) that we need to make 2020 the year of health and happiness. I totally concur. Which brings me to todays card. One of my girlfriends was diagnosed around Thanksgiving with breast cancer. On Christmas Eve she had her port inserted and a week ago she started chemo. Todays card is one of probably a ton that I will send her, cause card making is what I do…….:)

As you know I have become obsessed with Nuvo Drops. ALL OF THEM! Here on the sign I used stone drops applied with an embossing stylus. They look like little corroded bolts on the card. So cool!

I fell in love with the serene smirk on her face. To me it says: I’m hanging on, I got this. Which is exactly how I want my friend to feel.

When you use digital stamps, you have the freedom to move things around and resize. I am sure the designer did not mean for me to use all of the sentiments on one card, but I really wanted my friend to get the message. So while it may seem redundant to you, I actually did it on purpose.

I don’t think the “hang in there” card is redundant at all, I believe it’s perfect. Words make people feel good, some of your best work!! ; ) Love you!!
