Unity Stamp Co, Susan K Weckesser, Helmar Card + exciting news

Hi everyone! I made this card last week for the Unity + Susan K Weckesser + Helmar blog hop. I forgot to post it on the day I was supposed to. :( Do you ever have a spell when you LOVE creating but HATE blogging? LOL That is totally ME right now! I want a blog ghost writer....someone witty & charming. hehe

So, this card using the Create Your Day set. I love how cute and tiny the stamps are - they are pefectly sized for your card making needs! The sentiments are so sweet, the one I used says "Don't go through life, grow through life." I need that little reminder every once in awhile when I'm going through a rough spot. I constantly question myself in this industry and I know I don't really get personal on this blog (it's never been my thing, ya know?) I do kinda feel like I barrier myself off in order to protect myself from dissapointment......but then I'm also potentionally creating a barrier between myself and greatness!? Right?! (easier said than done, but I'm working on it!)

I love coloring with distress markers lately.....well, it happens that they are a LOT easier to transport and take into bed with me when I'm not feeling 100% than 200+ Copic Markers. *giggle* Plus, I don't feel like I have to be so perfect when I use them so it's a bit more liberating and freeing for me when I don't really want to think. I love that coloring can really take my mind off of anything and just let me be at one with my craft allowing myself some peace.

II used Helmar Premium Craft glue to adhere my main panel as well as Helmar Zap Dots to pop up my image panel. I love these dew drops by Robin's Nest and Helmar Gemstone Glue is great because it dries clear and doesn't discolor at all. 

Today I am also excited to share some fun news:

I am so exited! When Jennifer Evans sent me an email asking if I'd be interested, of course I said yes!! She is such an inspiration to me and she also has some exciting news today! Let's just say I wasn't surprsied at ALL to see her listed on the all new Heidi Swap Media Team!!! Congrats, girl!!!
