Go Fly a Kite

Do you have some neglected or forgotten stamps? I certainly do. I made today's project for Jessie's Forgotten Stamp Friday Challenge. The stamp is Pure Innocence My Balloon, although you might be puzzled about the name since she is not actually holding a balloon. That's because I swiped away the balloon portion before stamping so she could hold a kite instead. I pierced two spots in her hand to thread the string through. Now if this was my kite, it would either be tangled up in a tree or smashed on the ground but this little girl knows what she's doing.

Do I sound cheerful? So many things to be sad about but if I thought if I faked it long enough maybe it would get better in the meantime. The gloomy rainy weather hasn't helped my mood. Thank goodness I have stamping/crafting to keep me preoccupied.
