Another post with a very literal interpretation of the for-a-couple-more-hours current Retro Sketch for Challenge #35. Literal, because I also made the card for the HYCCT#1231 "A Walk in the Woods".
Granted, no woods around here look like this cute and fun card. Actually, we hardly have woods around here - just the lone walnut trees in the midst of the vineyards... But I wasn't in the mood for an artsy fartsy card at the moment.
When I found this quote from A.A. Milne's "Winnie the Pooh", I knew I had to use it - for the HYCCT campaign. Cuz it is basically about how you see the world. Dealing with cancer is definitely not a fun thing. But I can only imagine it may be easier to do if you are capable of seeing the glass half-full instead of half-empty. Although in my heart I think I am an optimist, I do tend to be like Piglet in my daily life, always seeing the negative. I need to take some lessons from gentle Pooh Bear.
Definitely hard to get this sentiment onto a card like this. This one won't win any prizes, but I felt compelled to make it. Found this digi freebie stamp from Dawn and printed it on four pieces of CS. Added a die cut wonky border, some clouds faintly in the BG and the eyelet/floss like the sketch.
Thanks for visiting - possibly for the second time today!
