Happy Day

Such a happy day.

I bought this small package of stamps with 3 cling/rubber stamps - The flower, Happy Day, and Hello.

The flower stamp comes with a flower and two leaves, but I'd like to stamp the flowers purple and pink and the leaves green, so I cut the leaves from the flower and stamped the flowers and leaves separately.

It was good that I looked at the clearance basket at AC Moore. The package only cost me one dollar.

It is such a happy day today!

Wonderful day

Spring is here! So wonderful!!

I made this card with basic pink ink on a light purple card with sentiment on vellum then tied with a piece of pink twine. A simple card but so wonderful!!

Birthday Wish

I made a happy birthday card for my student. 

First I stamped the cute monkey, colored it using markers, and fussy cut the monkey. Then I used a dinner plate as a template to cut out the yellow balloon. I also used my Sizzix machine to embossed the balloon with polka dots. Finally, I tied a string on the balloon and glued the string on the back of the monkey's hand. Isn't the monkey cute? I hope the card will make my student smile on his birthday.

Don't forget to make a wish!!

Black Beauty

Stamped the flowers with white ink and then highlighted the flowers with colored pencils. Very happy with the results. 

I'd like to explore more on dark cardstock with white colored pencil, but that's another post.

True Happiness

True happiness comes from the joy of deeds well done, the zest to creating things new.
