Garden Happiness ~ FMS86

This morning I went into my hobby room and filmed 2 videos and made 3 cards.  It was so much fun to play with new paper and stamps.

I went to my stamp room with a few sketches and a new pack of paper.  When I saw this sketch on Freshly Made Sketches challenge website, I knew I want to try it with the Gingham Garden patterned paper.  The paper is fun and fresh and I wanted to make a card that would highlight the DSP.  

When it came time to add a sentiment to this card I chose the word "Happiness".   It makes me happy when we have a rainy, gloomy day outside so that I can play with my paper inside.  :)

I'm so glad that I could take a break from pulling weeds, trimming bushes and plating flowers to play with my paper and stamps.  Thank you FMS for providing a great sketch to get me going.  Perhaps I will try out this sketch with the other new paper pack I just got????  

Creative Blessings,
Heather North

Pulling weeds, trimming bushes and planting flowers is hard work so you deserve to spend some quality time in your stamp room as a reward! And this card seems to celebrate all your hard work in the garden with these lovely blooms! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
