Blissful Sketch Creation

Good Morning & Happy Thursday! 
It's really close to a nice long weekend with my kiddos & I'm looking forward to relaxing and spending some quality time with them!!!

My post for today is showcasing a quick & fun sketch from CPS-Card Sketches and the Bliss stamp set which I recently acquired!  I knew when I first received the Sale-a-Bration booklet from SU! that this would be my first freebie!!!  I do love it & I see myself using this set quite a bit even after SAB is over! 

Well, I can honestly say that even though I'm kind of happy with the finished card--crooked layers & all LOL; I'm not exactly having a *wonderful* day yet because my thoughts have been on my brother & it's pretty hard to see through tears. Maybe I should've waited until my mind was clear.....however; I've found that crafting is quite soothing so I just keep at it. I constantly tell myself that it'll get better one day---that day appears to be very far away!! Soooo, despite my mistakes I do hope you enjoy my creation & come back to visit again soon because Saturday is Etsy Inspiration Day and we'll have another great challenge for you!!!!


Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
