Happy Thoughts!

The weather has been just beautiful here...so I thought I would share this simple quick and happy card. I made it for a swap a short time ago.

Trina gave me this happy little HM image. I tend to only use red for Valentines Day or Xmas...but it seemed to go well here..and it was fun to work with such a happy energetic color.

Stamps - House Mouse

Ink - Versafine black, bashful blue, creamy caramel, close to cocoa

Paper - whisper white, basic gray, my minds eye

Accessories - ribbon, nesties, brad, glitter.

Have a Great Weekend filled with Happy Thoughts and Sunshine!! Thanks for looking and all your lovely comments!!
