Krista Smith has written and illustrated a book that grew out of conversations with her son about 'rage quitting' his video games.  'It is a story as much about parenting a child through self control issues, as it is about self reflection and allowing our children to teach us too.'

I've made a birthday card with this image, adapted from the book.  I've coloured the image with markers and used a Celebr8 stencil and Distress Inks to create the background.  My paper is from the PhotoPlay Whiskers pack.  The sentiments are Ultimate Crafts stamps, and I've cut them out using Poppy Crafts dies.  I've added a few glittery star stickers.

Krista's book is available for pre-order right now.  The image below will take you straight to the book

Thank you so much for popping in for a look!

    1. Hi Marjan
      I'm actually not sure if Krista intends to add this image to her store or not. I think the best thing to do is to pop over to her Facebook page, where you'll find info and links to her Patreon page. She made this image available to her Patreon patrons.
