Happiness is - Fridays!!!!


Anyone out there remember the Peanuts having lots of ideas of what Happiness is? I had whole little book about it I think. Wow - those were the days! Today - Happiness is butterflies, a half day Friday with golfing and refreshments....and a husband who understands me!! WoooHooo!!!

I'm starting to get a bit used to these easel cards - it wasn't a necessary part of this card, but I liked the idea using the scalloped circle die for the Big Shot. The sketch is from Just Add Ink. The 4 Crafty Chicks are looking for anniversary cards this week. And finally, the colours are from the Color Throwdown - Certainly Celery, Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie.

I've also added this card to a newly discovered challenge blog - Hand Stamped Sentiments - their challenge this week is to use paper piecing in your creation.

My daughter came into my craft room while I was working on this and loved the color combo - she has to make something for a friend of hers - so we'll see if the colors pop up again.

Well, gotta get to work - I'll be finding out today if my "creative" idea of having the entire school singing a song in canon at four sections around the gym is going to work. I'm pushing the limits for the little grade 1's and 2's - so we'll see. It may just be a "crazy" idea instead.

Ta ta for now - thanks for stopping by!
