Sending Happy Thoughts

Good Morning! I hope spring is in the air for you. The sun is shining and it's warming up a bit here. It's beautiful outside!!! We even slept with the windows open last night, I love that :)

This card was made with some stamps that a friend of mine gave me (thanks Teresa :). When you go to ScrapMania at Archiver's, which is what they call their Friday and Saturday night crops, you get a packet of materials to make a layout and each month is a different packet. Well I think it was last month a small set of Hero Arts stamps was included in the packet and I didn't get a chance to go to a crop, but my friend Teresa did and she doesn't really "do" flowers so she gave me her set of stamps and all she asked was that I make a card for her. That was an awesome deal in my book, because I LOVE stamps and flowers! This is the card I made for her. The flowers around the border of the card are actually a flower border stamp so that made that part really easy. The turquoise piece I embossed with my cuttlebug embossing folder and mounted on yellow plaid paper. The little envelope is a punch that I just recently purchased so I was excited to use it. It's from McGill. Then I just handcut a little tag from the same yellow that is matting the turquoise and stamped "Sending Happy Thoughts" and a little flower from the same stamp set onto the tag. I added some fiber that I had in my stash and a prima flower with a hero arts gem in the center. I thought it turned out cute and Teresa liked it. I just love to share :)

Remember that the newly released stamps are now for sale at There are also stamp kits that have many ideas to use with the stamps. Lots of fun. Be sure to go take a peek!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
