I am so very glad you are here today! Did you know that green ribbons are a symbol for mental health awareness? I know in this pandemic many people are suffering with depression and anxiety which they had never known previously. I have suffered with bipolar disorder and severe depression most of my adult life. Thankfully it is controlled well with medication. I have also learned many coping skills to help me to have a more 'normal' life.
So the green ribbon truly touches my heart which is why I wanted to create with the Hope Ribbons stamp and use bright green ink:
This is a four way repeating stamp which means left or right, up or down, you can make your beautiful background as large as you would like. I wanted mine to be used in a slim line card so I made it longer to fit inside my three circular openings.
I also used the BFF Girl Kate stamp and die as a focal image. She looks like she has it all together...but perhaps she struggles sometimes too so I have compassion for her. My sentiment is from the Dad's Day stamp set which has some wonderfully encouraging sentiments included.
If you struggle like I have, or maybe our girl Kate here, reach out. Reach out to me, your pastor, a therapist...but don't fight alone. Your mental health is vital and you are worth the effort. I promise.
So that's it for me today. Whatever color ribbon you fancy...stamp away and have some fun with it. You can see these products and so much more by visiting Picket Fence Studios today. I have linked the products I used below in case you are in a shopping mood!
