Most of the time, we make cards to send to others, but it's fun--and therapeutic--to make a card just for yourself every now and then.
As I was playing around with Simon Says Stamp's My Sunshine set, this card happened. It's exactly what I need to hear right now. May is always crazy with end-of-school activities and summer preparations. So here's a card just for me!
Both the stamps were inked with the lighter color and then the darker color ink was rocked and rolled up from the bottom of stamp. The gradation adds interest, but with the dark colors on bottom, the whole impression is of sinking into relaxation. Well, that's how I take it.
What message do you need to hear right now? Make a card for yourself and put it on your mantle or inspiration board just like you would a card from someone else. Don't we need to take good care of ourselves so we can take good care of others?
I think so.
