Taylored Expressions #154 * I love a Crafty Cuppie *

Hello and Good Evening Friends! Happy Friday!

So, my very dear DH is out of town for the next few weeks, which as an army wife, eh, that is no big deal. What nags at me is the fact that this is just the begining of a very busy year ahead for me. To simply sum-it-up, he is away for 3 weeks, few days home, away for 2 weeks, then 6 weeks home and then away for 9 months. In the midst of all that, we are foster parents to an 8 year old boy whom we are officially adopting at the end of April and we are being asked to take a (somewhat special needs) sweet 4 year old little girl into our home as a legal-risk foster placement. Good Gravy ..

So, Yes, I am venting, and with this card, I am reminding myself, and am asking all my friends to remind me to "DO SOMETHING CREATIVE EVERYDAY!" Just like good ole' Crafty Cuppy, which happens to be my very first Taylored Expressions stamp, given to me by my very best BFF, Cassie. This card inspired by Taylor's newest sketch over on Taylored Expressions' blog.

Stamps: TE Crafty Cuppie
Paper: MME Dilly Dally, TE Watermelon, TE Lagoon, Buttercream cs

I LOVE it! It's important to do something creative everyday, or at least do a little something for yourself, especially while it's all on your shoulders. Cuppie at his craft table. . .what could be cuter ;)
