About a year ago I purchased some cute stamps from My Favorite Things. They are the Pure Innocence Collection and I fell in love with them....but then they got here and I had no time to stamp, things were crazy as usual. That happens when you have two babies I suppose . . .
Well, the other day, I made space in my office, post move (because it had become the storage room if you will) and I got stamping! I really needed the "me time." I have been feeling so super stressed out lately with the move and then E (3 y/o) having seizures, traveling, etc. It was and always will be the cheapest form of therapy for me. Well, kind of, sort of . . . you know how it goes when shopping for stamping stuff, but really, even a cheap therapist is like mucho $$$, so yeah . . .
Incidentally, after stamping for a bit, I went online and did a little retail therapy and bought a few more Pure Innocence stamps as well as some other ones from My Favorite Things. I think they should be arriving tomorrow! YAY! Yep, I am addicted again . . .
Making cards sure beats stress eating, so I made these two cards. One is square like the sketch and the other is the A2 version with a couple of modifications. Which do you prefer?
