Good Friend, I Miss You

This is a quick one-layer card for you that uses the 'good friend' star from Unity's January Kit, To the Moon & Back, along with a sentiment from an older kit, Favorite Things! I stamped the stars in somewhat of a pattern using four different shades of red and pink. I also distressed the edges with a pale pink and the sentiment is, of course, black.

I've been unbelievably tired these past two days, as in I can't keep my eyes open and I'm struggling to get anything done. I hope I snap out of it soon or maybe I just need a vacation to somewhere really warm with a lot of sunshine. ;)

Yesterday, I shot a video tutorial which I had to convert and then I tried to find some video editing software but nothing was working for me. I'm completely frustrated which may have contributed to my exhaustion. Now I'm trying to upload it to YouTube and link it up to my blog from there. It is rough but hopefully I can post it soon!

Love those stars and the "controlled randomness" is perfect. Good luck with that video. I feel your pain as I'm struggling to learn more about Photoshop Elements. It continues to defeat me...
And if you ever need a sunny holiday Bermuda and I would be thrilled to see you!

What a sweet and simple card -- love the colors!

I think you should take your Bermuda friend there up on her offer of a trip...and pack me along in your suitcase!

Hope you're feeling more lively soon!
