More Patterned Pines

It's been a long, hard couple days, and I find myself seriously evaluating my place in the stamping community... in the Yahoo groups to which I belong, and even in the Stampin' Up! community. I've been working too hard; and while I don't expect any great rewards, I guess my expectation was to not get kicked in the teeth for the work I've done, much less for who I am and what I believe. Apparently my expectations are too high, as I find myself the victim of some hating, ignorance, and just plain stupidity as of late. I'm just weary of it all.

But you didn't come here to hear me whine, did you? Here's my cards for the day...






Stamps: Patterned Pines, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Colors: Taken with Teal, Sahara Sand, Whisper White
DSP: Holiday Lounge
And: Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, White Taffeta ribbon

Joyce,
I know how hard it can be when you are disabled to stay in any kind of community whether is it in the 'real' world or online. Keep a stiff upper lip!
The second card that you posted is the best one I have seen using the Patterned Pines stamp! I love the layout and the background paper with it.
