Happy heart!

I think this sentiment stamp could possibly be one of my all time favorites! I think it is so perfect for so many of the cards I like to send! This is a little 3x3 I made to keep in my when I need a quickie...I've got it! The layout is just simple and clean...and allows this card to be recreated or mass produced quickly! It would even be a great full sized card.
The card base is soft sky...LOVE that color, and I will be oh, so sad when it retires! But, Stampin' Up! always comes up with a new wonderful color...but this soft sky really holds a special place in my heart!:) So, soft sky base, then a strip of the Noteworthy (MM) designer paper...can you tell I love it too!? And a little strip of Old Olive. The ribbon is the twill ribbon from the Occasions Mini catlaog that is currently running from Stampin' Up! They extended the dates of the Mini, so you have until June 30 to enjoy! Yea for more summer picnic paper!! I just stamped the image in chocolate chip ink, and added a little felt flower(su) with a chocolate brad (MM)in the center.

Hope you are all having a great day! We've had a couple of days off school (Happy May-Day!) and are really enjoying a relaxing weekend at home!:) Really, I'm super excited to have found a wonderful mall!! It's funny that I haven't been more inclined to find shopping places...but my son had to have new shoes, like 2 weeks it was a great incentive to go shopping. You know when you're pregnant-you don't want to go least I didn't! But I'm really excited to take my two girls and hit the town!! Yippy!! Anyway, enjoy your weekend and I'll be back! I've got a few things that are just about finished...oh, I mailed out our Mother's Day cards today, I LOVE them...I think I'll have to wait until after the day, because my mom reads my blog! But, oh, I loved them!! So I'm really excited to share!

Thanks for stopping by!!

This is a very cute card. I'm repeatively drawn to and agree with your comments on your color selections. Good day, Good weekend!

I'm going to miss Soft Sky, too. It looks splashy with the Olive. Wonderful job!
