Crafting really is my therapy....

I'm sad to say that I have realized that I have not completed and posted a card in almost 2 months. This is NOT because I haven't wanted to craft, it's because life got in the way. This week, between prepping for a family reunion, Father's day planning, a teething 11 month old who now has ear infections, etc. etc. etc.....I FORCED myself to sit down and make a card. Guess what happened.....I felt better! I was calm and relaxed and crawled right into my bed and fell asleep - it was GREAT!!!
The moral of my story: Don't let life push the important things aside - regardless of how minor those things seem!
This card is for The Phindy's Place Challenge Blog. This week their challenge was all about water. I just love little "Splashy Sienna"! I paper pieced her dress and I'm loving her in little polka dots. The flower embellies are from a prize I won somewhere along the lines, can't for the life of me remember where or when (I told you I've been busy!!!).
So, here's my card with Phindy's Sienna....I hope you enjoy it!

  2. Yeaaaaaa Katie, This looks awesome.... So glad that you found a little bit of "Me Time"... Glad to see you back....

  3. This is adorable Katie, love her red hair and the sweet polka dotted dress. Such a fun and summery project. I totally hear you, if you take a bit of time for yourself you feel so much better! So glad you were able to get some time to play along this week!

  4. Katie I'm amazed how much you do achieve, having said that it's lovely to see one of your cards again and this is a beauty! Love that embellie which fits your colourscheme perfectly. Thank you for joining in with this week’s Phindy’s Place Challenge, do hope you’ll play again this Friday!
