Essentials of Happiness ~ Mercy's Tuesday sketch!

Happy Friday everyone!! I sit here Thursday night, preposting, a little sad that my Verve stamps were not waiting for me when I got home :( They will more than likely be here tomorrow, but once they were here in 4 days so I was hoping :) I made half of this card last night but left the main image panel for today, hoping I could use my new "Enjoy" set. I was tempted to pick up my button bouquet stamp, but decided to go through my SU sets and look for a rectangular image. I found my Sidekick Sayings hostess set and smiled. I love the sentiments in this set. I thought I needed a little reminder to be happy while waiting for my new stamps :) After I tied the ribbon and adhered the main panel, I wanted to add a little somethin', somethin'. Bling would've been too much, but the buttons were perfect (even if they weren't in a bouquet!!) LOL. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend...I'm going to my 25th High School Reunion on Saturday night!! It's going to be informal and only about 50 people will be there (I graduated with 500), but it will be fun nonetheless :) TGIF!!

What's in it?
Stamps: SU sidekick sayings
Ink: SU choc chip, old olive
Paper: PTI aquamist, avocado green, green tea leaves dp, vintage cream; SU choc chip, kraft
Accessories: cuttlebug ef, PTI buttons, satin ribbon, SU corner rounder

Cute card. The buttons are a perfect finishing touch.

Have a great time at the reunion.

Love this sentiment and your soft and pretty layout! The buttons do finish it off perfectly!

Awwww....I know that feeling - but you really did rock it with this sentiment =) I can't wait to see what you come up with when all your fabulous new Verve stamps arrive.

And 25 years?! Are you joking? I'd guess about 10 if I didn't see you with your son =) Unless he's just some random neighbor you take pictures with...

Oh yeah - and if you were closer, we really would HAVE to get together for a drink =)
