Balancing Life

It's Friday again! I'm so glad we are finally here. It's been a busy week for me and I'm sure it's been nothing less for you as well.

It's a new month and so there is a new sketch challenge at InStyle Stamps today. I say this every time, I think, but you have to go see some of the Design Team's creations, they are amazing! You can see them here, but only after you've seen someone new right here!

InStyle Stamps has a new line of stamps coming out this month. Her name is Chloe and in this digital stamp she's balancing very well an apple on her head. I needed to fit in another Mother's Day card before we celebrate this weekend, but I think she could be used for all a card or gift to give all of the hardworking teacher's in our nation. She's a cutie!

If you want to play with this versatile sketch don't forget to link it up at the InStyle Stamps blog here. You'll have a chance at a spiffy prize if you do-oo.

Have a splendid weekend, and for all of the mother's who are reading this before the weekend, I wish you a restful and beautiful Mother's Day.
