An Oldie But Goodie

Hi, everyone!
Thursday's are Oldie But Goodie Days at Catch the Bug Blog
I love OBG day because I can break out some of my favorite Bugaboo Stamps to play with, and have an excuse to show them on my blog! lol! As if I need an excuse, right?!
Today I am using one of the Balloon Critter images,  Balloon Critter - Monkey.
For several weeks, earlier this year, it seemed as if the old adage, "when it rains, it pours" was reeking havoc on just about everyone I know. There were all kinds of serious illnesses, accidents, injuries.....every person I know seems to have been touched by a troubles. I ended up making some "Hang In There" cards, just trying to give some encouragement, small gesture as it was!

For this card, I kept things CAS. I admit - it was put together in five minutes. I was in a big hurry to run out the door, but wanted to not leave empty handed. So, I grabbed a dp from my stash, some mini-pennants (from my EK Success Mini Pennant Punches) that were floating around on my craft table from previous projects, and a couple of heart rhinestones. I was in such a hurry, I drew the pennant line on, instead of using some twine. (Yikes!).
My hope is that as you are reading this, life everywhere is calming down for those of us dealing with troubles! While I hope you are not one of these, maybe my card can put a smile on your face even if you are. As Tiny Tim would say, "God Bless Us, Every One!".

You can check out all the great images that Jodie has to offer, at the Bugaboo Store here.
