Staying Alive with Stranger Things and Year of Cheer

It's been only 10 days or so since I caught the nasty respiratory bug at my daughter's place, but it feels like a lot longer to me. I guess when you spend your waking hours (which are many) coughing, time goes by slowly. Anyway, yesterday seemed like the first day I really saw any significant improvement and I was able to finish my newsletter and get a card done for Freshly Made Sketches.

I spent my sick days, stayin' alive and binge watching Stranger Things 1 and 2. I'm a little late to the Stranger Things bandwagon, since I thought it was going to be too scary after seeing the first couple of episodes. But being an X Files fan, I decided it couldn't be much scarier than that and gave it a fair trial. I was entertained and had something to take my mind off coughing for awhile! I was also able to stamp at least something most days and yesterday I decided to design something for Freshly Made Sketches challenge #311. I immediately thought panels of DSP and the first that came to mind was the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper, so I dug out the whole suite and came up with this:
