This is a late blog post of a card I made last week. I used the Kelly Purkey Doing My Best Planner stamps for this card, in combination with Lawn Fawn mini dye ink cubes. This card was validation of some sorts that I was trying to do my best with the crazy week I had… starting with a long week, being sick, lack of sleep and self-care, and mood swings because of feeling crappy. Nobody gave me grief for being off my game, but I suppose if someone was frustrated with me, this would be the card I’d give to apologize for my less than stellar self at a time like that 😉
I used my MISTI stamping tool and MISTI Creative Corners to draw a faint diagonal line to be able to line up the sentiment, Doing My Best.
I haven’t done rainbow stamping in awhile, so I stamped the sentiment out in ROY G BIV fashion, using the inks Lobster, Carrot, Sunflower, Fish Tank, Sugarplum, and Fresh Lavender.
Surrounding the rainbow sentiment, I decided to stamp the other images and words in Manatee ink to help accentuate the stamped sentiment.
That’s basically the rest of the card! I was itching to do more to the card but I couldn’t decide of any other embellishments. So I decided to go with a philosophy that can be hard for me to follow at times… less is more.
Are you able to create and craft when you’ve had an exhausting or ill week? The nurse in me would like to give this PSA: Keep yourself well and make sure you disinfect shared surfaces at work and at home! 🙂
