I have been having a lot of ‘those kind of days’ and lately ‘that kind of week’!  I think we all go through a time when we feel like throwing in the towel and head back to bed.  If you know of someone with these symptoms, this card might just be the one they need.  It really gave me inspiration, so I guess I made it for myself without knowing it :).
