One Advantage

I had to take a day off from work today with little warning. I had to put my car in the shop this morning which leaves me without a means of getting around. While being stuck at home without transportation does have its disadvantages, it also has some advantages. I was actually able to get into my craft room and work on a card for the latest challenge over at House Mouse and Friends.

It seems like life has been crazy every since right before the boys headed back to school. With the youngest starting at a new school this year, our whole morning routine has been changed up and I haven’t had the crafting time that I was used to having. And, with the start of the new school year, comes the start of a new soccer season and practice 2 evenings a week. Throw in the other son’s evening commitments and, wow, I have been busy. Hopefully things will start to settle into a routine soon.

All of that being said, I feel like I haven’t done a basic card with stamping in forever. This image is always one of my favorites since it just reminds me of my youngest son so much since there is nothing he loves more than his Big Bear. I would love to hear what you think of the card. Also, if you have a favorite stamp that has special meaning, I would love to hear about that as well.
