SSC150 BANNER LOVE TAKE TWO~Bold and Beautiful

I figured it was time to make a card, especially after the week I've had.   I even took a break from all the craft fair projects.  I really need a little card therapy. I"ll share a bit of my week thus far, It all started with the oven not wanting to heat up anymore, then the refrigerator started leaking, and we don't even have a water dispenser/ice cube maker, so I don't know what that is all about, then the vacuum cleaner decided to break, and my nice little 40 dollar food processor blew up as in billows of smoke.   So it was no surprise(haha) to me when I went out to our vehicle with my son, who just had surgery to put pins in his hand..that I had a completely flat tire, (did I mention we were in a different city for the surgery)  Talk about feeling utterly alone.   However God sent us an angel.. and that man even had difficulties removing our flat tire.. but Praise the LORD he got our spare on, and we made it home safely.    So as you can imagine, I just wanted to spend today stamping.. BTW-our son is doing well.  another BIG blessing. 
Onto the card now.  I found the lovely sketch challenge at: Sunday Stamps and I loved how clean and simple this looked.  In fact as I'm typing this I'm thinking of another fabulous idea.. oh gosh I wonder how many times a gal can enter into this challenge?  I used the stampin up: Designer Tee and Special Reason stamp sets.  I like the bubble bee colors today.  Bright and bold.  
Thank you so much for stopping by.  I'd love to have you follow my blog.

Even when you're having a rough week...
