Live your life........

Hi crafty bloggers......hope you're all well & warm!
 If you're having the same weather as us it's blooming freezing.......bright blue skies & sunshine one minute, the next we're having hail, snow & wind and it's so cold I had to put the heating on!
So for today I have a quick & easy card to share.......still no colouring as my hands won't allow it but to be honest I'm having fun without my Copics......never thought I'd say that lol! Anyway, I love this Inkylicious stamp.......life's not been too easy these past few years & it reminds me that when times are tough there's always something simple (and cheap) you can do to bring about a smile! Finally though, things are starting to look up........and I have some fantastic news that I can't share just yet...........let's just say it's given me the much needed boost I need..........and it's gonna make this Christmas extra special!!
 I love the chalkboard effect......I simply stamped with white ink onto black card then heat embossed with a clear embossing powder. Then I layered onto paper from Teresa Collins Vintage Finds paper pad, added some seam binding & finished with a punched tab & 3 pearls!
Rightio, better go feed the troops......thanks for calling!
