Happy Thoughts...

I have been dying to stamp with this Hero Arts bird cage, and surprisingly, this is one of those cards that just came together in no time. Believe me, that doesn't happen often! LOL!

The main image is Hero Arts Bird in Cage . I stamped it on brown textured cardstock using VersaMark Ink , then embossed with detail white embossing powder. The scalloped frame is a rectangle Nestabilities.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts Heartfelt Messages stamp set. I stamped on cardstock, then cut and embossed it with my new Petite Ovals Nestabilities. The scalloped layer is also from the Petite Ovals. I just got these, and I can definitely see that I'm going to be using them A LOT! The size is just perfect for so many sentiments.

Funny...but a couple of my designer friends also ordered those. Spellbinders erroneously sent only one set, so I felt too guilty about having them to use mine until they finally got theirs. Weird, I know! LOL!

The ribbon is from May Arts, and the designer paper is from the My Mind's Eye Bohemian collection. I found it at Hobby Lobby.

Our office is closed tomorrow for President's Day, so I have the day off! Woo hoo! I have so many things planned...including a little stamping, and sleeping in. We will see how all that works out! :-)

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope your weekend was good, and the coming week is even better!
