Hang in There

I've made this card for a single friend, who is exhausted at the moment, trying to manage work, family commitments and the care needs of her parents who live (separately) far away.  I thought the sentiment ( from a W plus 9 set - I cut off the second half of the stamp) was just right.

I used a stitching border stamp from Inky Doodles and birds from a Bo Bunny set (the text stamping is part of the design). I finished off with black and yellow sprays - you should see my hands!
