Friend Card Using CTMH Pemberley Paper, Cricut Artbooking and DS4J Congo Drums, Sitting Pretty

New Releases for DS4J 

Hi Blogland!  I have had 3 days migraine free; so I am very excited.  That may sound strange to some of you who don't have migraines; but it is a very big deal for me.  I think having a craft room full of plastic smells, new papers, cardstock and new stamp sets; have all been causing me to have headaches and brain fog.  

I moved all of the items that have an odor into another room; which can only be temporary.  I can't leave them there; because it is my step-sons room.  I tried airing them outside; but they picked up barbecue smells.  My husband tried cleaning the plastic with fresh lemons; but that was only a temporary fix.  Now; I am running two diffusers with a pure oil in that room; hoping to change the plastic smells.  It seems to be helping.  I have to do a group at a time of the stamp sets; so this is going to take me a while.  I also have a diffuser going in my craft room while I am in the room. 

It is time for Digi Stamps 4 Joy New Release of Digi Stamps.  DS4J has new releases every Sunday on the DS4J blog; so be sure to check them out.  I have used two of the new release stamps and merged them into one Digi scene.  I thought they looked good together.  I am using "Conga Drums" and "Sitting Pretty".   

I am entering this card in Path Of Positivity Challenge - Happiness.  What could be more happy than making music.  It is a way to celebrate who we are and makes others feel good to hear it.

    1. Thanks Marja. I did it twice. Oops. I fixed the theme. I checked to see what it says on Paper Playful and it says Summer. I must have just copied it from the one above it. So sorry. I was thinking Summer because this person is sitting outside getting ready to play the drums; but I can remove my entry if it doesn't meet your idea of Summer. Have a great day! Hugs, Gloria
