Life is a Beautiful Ride

Happy Friday stampers!!

It has been one heck of a week for me and I am so, so, SO happy that it is finally Friday.  We have been short staffed in my department at work since October, which means that me and my partner in crime have been working 50+ hours per week for the past 5 months...I am drained!  The good news is that we finally got someone hired!  We've still got a ways to go before she is fully trained, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now, which is helping continue to push through these long, stressful work weeks.

It's Friday Favorites today over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration and I am using my favorite Sale-a-Bration stamp set along with the Beautiful Ride stamp set.  These two sets go hand in hand!!  The little puppy fits perfectly inside the basket :-)
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Whisper White, Watermelon Wonder
Ink ~ Basic Black, Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, Soft Suede, Smoky Slate
Stamp Sets ~ Petal Pusher, Beautiful Ride
Other Supplies ~ It's My Party Enamel Dots, Basic Black/Mint Macaron Bakers Twine

The sentiment I used on this card really made me stop and think.  Even with all of the stress, long work hours, time away from my family (and stamping!), my life is still pretty amazing and really is a beautiful ride.  There are so many others who are going through much harder times in life, yet still keep plugging along.  I sent this card out today to a former boss and dear friend who had surgery this week and is going through some very hard times.  It is my hope that this will bring a smile to her face and make her day a little happier.

Here's to an amazing weekend!

Happy Stamping!

  1. So cute, Bree ... and so wonderfully CAS ... the sense of movement from the drifting balloon and that sweet pup's ears is fabulous ... and what a brilliant sentiment! Thanks for your visit and kind words! Anita :)
