Find Joy Everywhere!

This card makes me smile. And I really don't know why. So I am definitely mailing this to someone. Who knows...maybe it will make them smile too!

I think I've been on a yellow and orange kick lately! I used to never use orange, and now it seems that it's been appearing on my cards a lot! Anyway, the flower stamp is Penny Black's A Touch . (I have no earthly idea why they named it that!) But I really like the stamp, and it's super easy to color.

I stamped on yellow cardstock using VersaMark Ink then embossed with detail white embossing powder.

I colored the flowers and leaf using my Tombow markers and a blender pen.

The sentiment is from a Hero Arts clear set called Anytime Messages . That set has soooooo many great sentiments in it. I can see that I will be using it a lot!

The designer paper is from Basic Grey, and the ribbon is May Arts.

Thanks for all your sweet comments on my new look! I think Sara is super talented, and I'm really happy with all she did for me.

I appreciate you stopping by tonight....more tomorrow.
