Be Gentle Friendship Card

Today I was beating myself up for not getting more done. As though I hadn't just spent a week in my bed too sick to function. As though I could just decide that I was well enough to return to my normal top speed get everything done mode. I have to do lists! I WROTE IT DOWN!! 
Today there is also a new sketch over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. So I grabbed one of my AdornIt Paintables sheets and did a quick watercolor on one of the frames. I added a sweet sentiment that I clearly need to take heed of myself, and attached it to some Green Chevron double sided paper. I grounded the design with a strip of washi tape instead of a sentiment, since I already had a lot of sentiment going on at the top.
I added some thick grey twine as a wrap to the Paintables element, but I wanted to add something to the bow/knots. I tried flowers and buttons galore, until I found this little cat hanging out in my random cool buttons jar. I snipped off his backing and popped him up on some foam tape. I may have needed this sentiment, but with the addition of the cat I know just who needs to receive this card now. I hope it helps her take a step back into self care as it did for me. Be kind to yourselves, Stampin' Friends. We are all doing the best we can.
