Stampin' Up! Starburst Sayings

Tonight I took some time off and went to stamp just for fun.  Nothing I HAD to make, just fun.  I left the dishes and laundry and will worry about them tomorrow.  It's been a pretty tough week for me mentally and I just needed the break.  I used the sketch over at the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge as my guide and some of the new in colors as my colors.  

Isn't that a great sketch?!  I really love it and plan to use it in the future.

This mom thing is really kicking my butt lately and I have been going to bed almost every night feeling like I've failed yet again.  I don't know if I'm going to make it as a stay-at-home mom to a toddler.  The poor house is a wreck, the toddler is crazy, the cats are well, cats, and this mom is exhausted.  I'm hoping that once Jason is back to working 40 hours and not 50+ it will better.  March can't get here soon enough!


  1. Another starburst card...great! I love it. It is very tough being a mom, and these little ones do drain everything out of you. You are doing great. Hang in there.

  2. Yes, a wonderful sketch! And again, you did a great job with it...can see why you will use it again. You are NOT failing as a mom, stay at home or not, it is just how things go with a toddler... melt downs over seemingly to us, nothing! But this too shall pass, just keep doing those deep breaths and you will get there....!

  3. Wonderful card!!! The colors are gorgeous. I was able to stay home two years with my girls when they were 1 and 3. Oh boy those where wonderfully stressful days ;) I thought some days I would just love to run away and join the circus lol then I realized hey the circus is right here. They are now 19 and 21...my biggest blessings and my best friends. I also have a 4 month old granddaughter that rocks mine and my husbands world... NOTHING like being a grandparent. Trust me these days will pass in a blink of an eye. God bless!!


I love comments! Thanks so much for stopping by to say hello. :)
