Hang in there!

Hi, everyone!
I've been spending time organizing and creating in my craft room today (not necessarily in that order! lol!). I put together some encouraging cards for my stash. This one features the Doodle Pantry Kite Ants. The digital image kit includes sentiments, so I used one of them, as well, feeling it was perfect for what I was aiming to do....put a smile on a frowny-face!
I'm entering this into the Doodle Panty Monthly Challenge.

I had picked up the great papers from JoAnn on one of my more recent shopping spress. They are from the Heidi Grace SunShowers Paper Pad. I used my Silhouette Studio oftware to print and cut the image, and some Fiskars Cloud punches (after running my paper through my Big Shot with a Swiss Dots embossing folder).

That's all for now! I'll be back again soon with more cards to post, I'm sure! In the meantime, feel free to stay and browse some of my other posts! :)

This card has been entered into the following challenges:
