You are AWESOME!

Today, I felt empowered, I felt I gained my worth as a person, although I am currently not employed, being a stay-at-home housewife but I am still doing something to make a change in this world. I am making handmade cards that brings happiness to me and to those who love to receive a handmade card. It might not be big, it might not affect millions, but one small step brings about change in many different ways I cannot expect.

I made this card and I love the bright red apple, this stamp is from Tim Holtz’s Cling Rubber 2015 Blueprint series. I stamp this apple directly on my Neenah Solar White card stock, and mask it with post-it tape. Next, I used my Simon Says Stamp Jellybean dye ink to color the outside of the apple. Then, I did my Copic coloring. The red and green color combination made the apple pop! I love one dimensional cards and sometimes, keeping it simple is the best way to roll. I added a great sentiment at the bottom of the stamped image – You are AWESOME. I believe every women out there should feel empowered, whether it is being a stay-at-home mum, a female worker trying to make ends meet, a single parent, whoever you may be – Never underestimate yourself and your worth. Just remind yourself how wonderful and AWESOME you are!

I may not be bringing in the big bucks, I may not be having an income but I am spreading love and joy to people around me and to those that I may befriends in the future.

My card was repost by SimonSaysStamp on Instagram and this had just made my day! Thank you to all, this is a great encouragement for me and it has just gave me a brand new confidence to go forward with this new crafting hobby of mine.
