Crafting definitely helps with stress

I'm back, I needed to craft to help with my stress levels!  Sarah, my daughter, was lept on, on Saturday night in Oxford and her foot has been pretty severely injured.  The doctors (she has two, private ones, these days....she is so lucky and I'm so grateful to them!) saw her and sent her for x-rays and now we are waiting to see what the consultant has to say about the damage.

Crafting always makes me less stressed and I wanted to make a simple, clean looking card for one of my ladies, to let her know that I am thinking of her at the moment.  I came up with this one......


I was so pleased with it that I decided to make a whole set......


As I started making them, a request came in via our Pink Ladies Facebook group for samples of cards to be used at the NEC next week, so with no further ado and whilst everything was out I made two of each!  I hope you get to see them at the NEC if you are going.

I have used four of the new In Colours, Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Island Indigo.  I stamped on Whisper White using one of the new hostess sets, Simply Soft,  This is a two step stamping set so my Stamp-a-ma-jig came in handy too.  I have used my Fiskars trimmer to double emboss the edges of the Whisper White mat.

I'm feeling so much better and calmer after crafting today.

Happy crafting and thanks for popping by my blog today.
