Friendship card Using Whimsy Stamps Art By Miran Sierra Rubber Stamp

Hello friends.  I hope everyone is doing well.  I have been having issues with joint pain; but still trying to create a few of my cards.  It helps me keep my mind off of the pain.  I realized I have over 100 Whimsy rubber stamps; so I am decided I need to use at least one a month going forward.  I can't resist all those adorable stamps.  I missed out on some of them; because I waited too long and were gone/discontinued.  I wonder if I will ever be able to use them all.  I have tons of digi stamps as well; but can you ever have too many?  LOL!  

I realize it is an addiction; but so is collecting all the fabulous paper packs and dies that I keep buying.  I guess it is better to have a crafting addiction then drugs or alcohol.  If I see a card created with a certain paper or stamp; I just have to have it.  If I could create them as well as some of these artists I see out there.  I am in awe of their work. I keep practicing; but I don't think I will ever be a natural at this; no matter how much I practice.  

The colors on this card are actually better in person; but my purples just don't take very good pictures.  I have a new camera and it isn't any better than the old one with the purple and pinks.  This is my first time coloring blue hair; which has made me want to color all the other colors of the rainbow.  The purples are actually a perfect match for the paper I used for the background; even if the picture doesn't show it to be true.

I absolutely love this new Whimsy Stamps Art By Miran "Sierra" Rubber Stamp.  Isn't she precious!  It is another one that I had to have.  Fairies and butterflies are my biggest weakness.  LOL!
