   Hello and welcome to the Seasons Givings Year 5 Blog Hop! This year has been a very special year for my family as we welcomed our baby girl Abby June into the world. Life has been pretty darn busy, but I still make time for my favorite hobby, stamping! If you want to see pics of my little cutie be sure to follow me on Instagram @veezalis

    Today I am sharing a card and sentiment that hits home for me.


Rest and Relax, perfect advice after a busy year and Holiday Season!

Here is the full card:


To create this card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set "Cuppa Love". The background was created using MFT Gingham background stamp.

Thank you so much for sharing your creativity and artistry; you inspire me so much. My crafting goal for 2017 is to try to create at least once a week. Doesn't seem like a lot but balancing work, my family, and taking care of my mom leaves little time for anything else but crafting freshens my soul so it's important.
