Stamping to Get My Mind Off of "Stuff"

Ever just have so much on your mind and so much stress in your life at the moment that you just need to escape, if even for a few minutes??

Yeah, that's me today!

I went home from work for my lunch break, like I always do and just had to stamp something so I wouldn't sit there and eat cookies and think.....about *STUFF*!

I have had this sketch on my mind all week so I went ahead and just cleared it out of there ;)

Stamps, ribbon and paper are from Papertrey Ink.
Rhinestones are from Daisy D's {on sale at Jacksonbelle Embellishments)
See you tomorrow for Hip Hop! I serioulsy can't wait for you to see the cards I made, I love them!!

Inspirational Friday Fun!

This week Sherry's Friday Fun Challenge is to use this picture as inspiration for our cards:

I have this thing I do when there is an inspiration challenge...I look at the picture one time and one time only and then just do the first thing that comes to mind...

What came to mind was the yellow Coronas and the beautiful brown table and went with yellow and brown for the main colors. I knew it had red white and blue but that I didn't want to use any of those colors so pink popped up in there instead. I also remembered stripes and polka dots somewhere so I used those on my card, too.

Hope you like it and it inspires you, too!

When uploading to SCS please use keyword FFC40 or link yoru blog here to mine!!

Check out the rest of the girls cards:
Happy Friday!!
See you soon!
