Big Birthday Hugs!

It's a Friday post on a Saturday...  did I mention that I've been making a lot of mistakes lately?  I am not kidding.  I used to be devastated when I did something wrong as a kid and even as a young adult.  It's taken me a lot of years to be OK with blowing it!  Of course, I don't want to make that a new habit - lol!  But when I do... oh well, pick up the pieces and keep moving forward.  I've discovered that the world isn't dependent on whether or not I do everything right - ya know what I mean?  So... if you've been like me, I encourage you to cut yourself some slack and receive God's grace to carry on.  There.  I feel better now - hee hee!

This is a card I created for two specific challenges.  The first is for i {heart} copics, Fabulous Friday Challenge #9.  The second is for Simon Says Stamp Challenge #4, both on Paper Craft Planet.  This is Chris' sketch (Simon Says Stamp) - isn't it awesome?  I had soooo much fun making this : )
