So I woke up today thinking it was Saturday and that I missed FWF again. Just about an hour ago, knowing that Saturday is Cinco de Mayo, I came to the realization that today is only the 4th and, therefore, must be Friday. Whoo hoo! I am NOT going to miss it after all :) It has been a rough day already today and it is starting to look up :) Bring on the weekend fun!!!
"This Too Shall Pass":
Cardstock: Unknown (using up scraps)

Punch Border: Stampin' Up!
Other: Zig Millennium Pen .005 (EK Success)
Close up shot:
I messed up the stamping when trying to line up the outline with the solid (I really need to get one of those stamp positioner tools....anyone have a recommendation?). Talk about frustrating! I played around a little with my chalk inks and fingers, then finished it all off by outlining the entire image with a .005 nib black pen. I stepped back to take a look...what do you know? A very happy accident :)
The sentiment is awesome...I think it to be a sign from my mommy. Why? It was always one of her favorite things to tell me when I was down and struggling with things. It came in Unity's February Kit Of The Month...the month she passed...the year anniversary...coincidence? Hmmm....maybe for some...but the goosebumps I had on my arms the day I opened it and the fact that the sight of it seemed to burn into my mind...well...that tells me otherwise. A mother's love is strong...and it doesn't end in death <3
