Friday I was suffering from a bad case of the blues. Tired, aching, grieving — it all added up to a day that was icky all around. Usually housework is satisfying to me (and I had the extra challenge of getting the studio back in shape after a big week), but everything seemed like drudgery. Really, I need a vacation!
We have had good times visiting Washington, DC, and I have been thinking about the cherry trees there. I don’t know that this image is cherry blossoms, but it will do for me. The repetitive stamping and coloring was very soothing for me. (I stamped on a half sheet of card stock, so I have more of this patterned paper waiting in the wings.) Being creative was a good end to the day.
I like this sketch. Yes, it’s a lot like this card — easy to do and very versatile. Try it!
