Better than therapy

I recently purchased a stamp set from Papertrey Ink named Doodlie-do. And I have been playing with these stamps over the course of the last few days. Along with some Copic markers. And I swear it's better than therapy. Just sitting here, coloring, I feel so happy, calm and peaceful. And I wonder why am I not doing this everyday? If only right? However, when I can squeeze in the time it is just what the doctor ordered.
I stamped the flower image on white cardstock using Papertrey's Melon Berry Ink and colored it with Copics R11 and R20. The card base is Papertrey's Soft Stone cardstock which I also used for the sentiment matting. And you may be able to see I colored in the dots (on the flower image with the sentiment) with a white Gelly Roll pen.
I was having such a good time I stamped out more images from the set so I could begin coloring them when time allowed. Well lets just say I made time LOL! I'll post them in another day or so.
Hope you're staying warm wherever you are. I'm kinda tired of the cold already. When I was heading out to work this morning at 6:45 the temp was 14 but - with the windchill -1. Yeah. I have had enough.

Darn you are really making me wish I bought this set. Maybe with my next order.
I so agree that coloring can be a great relaxing and no need for therapy.
I am here for you… hugs!
