Sending You Sunshine

Here's a card I made for a very sweet blogging friend a little while back....

Supplies: Stamp - Clearly Besotted 'Butterfly Wishes' & 'Blooming Marvellous'

We did get a little bit of sunshine over the weekend but predictably, the rain is back now :(

It's going to continue to be quiet here on the blog, it's suddenly dawned on me that I've been neglecting my family and home so I'm hoping to rectify that this week.  In recent months, my admiration for working mothers has gone through the roof....I'm struggling to find the right balance myself, but I'll get there :)

Have a great week lovely people x

I don't see how these celeb Mum's can be "Mum of the Year" as they are never with them! What's that all about??
Finding the right balance between family and work is a necessity and realising that -you are already half way there.
Stunning and totally gorgeous CAS card, this looks like one of those expensive Hallmark cards you'd spend a fortune on. Beautiful.
Enjoy your precious family time.
Hugs, Katie xx

This is really beautiful. And, I'm happy to hear that you will be focusing on your family. That is the best reason for a bit of blog silence.

Wow Stephanie those butterflies are so vibrant they're almost flying off the page. I'm sure you'll get your work/life balance sorted out - but I'm sure you haven't been neglecting that lovely hubby and gorgeous children.

This is guaranteed to brighten the gloomiest day Stephanie.

As for your work/life balance, try allocating set hours for your business and/or blog, (As if you were physically going out of the house to your place of work). When those hours are up, stop, leave the 'office' and spend the rest of your time with your family. It MIGHT work! LOL xxx

So happy and cheerful, love how you have layered the trio of butterflies!

It is hard to find the right balance, but I bet you're doing much better than you think you are :D
