#30 Days of Happy

 

Hello September and welcome to National Stamping Month and CTMH "30 Years of Happy".   What a great time to celebrate stamping fun!   I hope I get more time this month to play with these cute little stamps!   All sorts of FUN

If you're hopping along with us on the CTMH "30 Years of Happy" Blog Hop,  you've come from Sheila's fun inspiration!    I had a tough time choosing what sentiment I wanted but not paper.  I'm absolutely SMITTEN with Thistle, LOL!  I think I've used up all the Thistle in the Fundamental pack as I just had a few little pieces left but they were perfect for my cards.  I've also enjoyed getting out the Flaxen.  I wasn't sure I was going to like this color but it has surprised me. 

 This sketch is from an old Sketch Saturday #217 card sketch.   I also made another card while I had out all the supplies.   This one is for a friend at work who just earned a promotion.  She deserved it and I wanted to use the "You Did It" stamps.  This is from an Operations Write Home Sketch.   It's now time to HOP to Jean's blog.

Love your first card! Really like how you used the butterflies, the embossed background, and the off-kilter accent piece.

I've Arrived!

In my usual fashion, late but with a GREAT story to tell. I didn't join the bloggers of the world until now because what would I have to share, at the time, I didn't think anything...well...I've changed my mind. I do want to share with all my friends and family-- my thoughts, creations and ideas. So, welcome to my World.

We'll Live, Love and Laugh 4 Life together!

Looking out the Living Room Window I realized today was a good day to get those projects I've been putting off DONE! It was beautiful to look at but I sure didn't want to get out in it this morning! Good thing I was on vacation.
