May songbirds serenade you every step along the way.
May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that's always blue.
And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through. ~ unknown
After making and posting a sympathy card last night, I wanted to make a HAPPY card for you all today. :)
Don't you just *love* this adorable little hedgie? My sweet friend Nancy from The Stamp Shack sent me several of these images over a year ago and I'm still enjoying them. They are FUN to color, that's for sure! (What color is a hedgehog anyway?! ;)
There is a theme challenge at The Stamp Shack this week hosted by Kim to use buttons and stitching. Perfect!
My photo colors are a little funky from what it really looks like. The pink cardstock is Stampin Up regal rose so it's not really this bright and coral colored...it's softer and more pastel.
This terrific layout is THANKS to the MOJO Monday designer Julee Tilman. Love it! All of her sketches are so wonderful to create with. Be sure to blog on over to her website and see what her fabulous team of designers have created this week! And then, if you have more time, check out the nearly 300 posts on Mr. Linky for even more inspiration. Omg, it never ends!
Isn't the summer flying by FAST?! When August arrives, I think of school starting and Autumn just around the corner. I hope you're enjoying your summer and doing things that make you SMILE! I love the sunshine and being outdoors, but I also *love* stamping and cardmaking and find myself spending more and more time in my craft room. At least I finally got the window washed so I can see outdoors and enjoy the sun shining through! :)
Now, I have to THANK U ALL again for taking the time to leave comments as they really do MAKE MY DAY!! I wish I could have one big stamping party to meet all of you in person! Wouldn't we have a *funtastic* time?! :)
Smiles 2 U!
P.S. do any of you have trouble with line spacing in Blogger? I always have to go into the html code and put in the line breaks. Is there a secret I need to know about this?
