Enjoy Your Day FTL151

Well, the hubby and I had a pretty stressful weekend. I'm not going to go into it, but suffice it to say that my not having a job is starting to have a serious impact on our financial situation. But, we decided to just do the best we can, ask for help where we can, and keep plugging along. There is no sense arguing and fighting about it because that is the best we can do.
Anyway, I decided that making a card this morning would help me cheer up a little bit. It's a good thing I have such a huge stash of product to keep me going with my little hobby. That's one great thing that my last job did for me-a good employee discount and tradeshow freebies built me a mountainous stash lol. And it really does help me feel better to make something pretty. 
I've been really loving the sketches at Clean & Simple Stamping, and this is the latest one released on Friday.

My Card:
Inside:
I've been selling a few cards here and there, and a good friend of mine who owns her own salon said she would trade me a box of handmade cards for a severely needed haircut and color--she is so danged awesome! The above card will be one of those in the box I hope to give her sometime this month.
I also just listed some of my extra stuff and tools that I don't use much in the local classified ads (see below post if you're interested). So hopefully I can get a bit extra from that as well.
Thanks for visiting me today, and for reading my personal crap lol.  Let me know what you think about this card.
